"Even though I am a huge LoVe shipper, I still never minded when Veronica or Logan were dating someone else (Duncan, Piz, Parker, Hannah, etc). All of their other girlfriends/boyfriends were likable characters and well developed. But, I think the real reason I didn’t mind them breaking up is that I knew that Veronica and Logan would end up back together in the end."
"I liked Parker’s character up until she hooked up with Logan and then got angry when he defended Veronica (especially as a survivor, and knowing Veronica had also been a rape victim, didn’t she realize how much of a violation the sex tape was? Didn’t she understand it all too well?). What did she expect? She started dating Logan weeks after he broke up with his on and off girlfriend of 2 years, she genuinely expected him to do nothing? It made no sense and it made her look dumb and naive."
"I feel like Parker had so much potential as a character in season three. She would have been a cool “Wallace” for Logan - a person with a great moral compass who could really ground him. Their brotp would have been fun to watch partly because she was so playful and energizing. I also loved watching her bring Mac out of her shell. Parker was such a great example of someone ultimately reacting in a positive way after a hugely traumatic experience. In that way she would have been a great dichotomy to Veronica as well."
"The reason why I hate Parker has nothing to do with LoVe. She had this amazing character development; being a rape survivor, saving Veronica, fun, bubbly, managed to get Logan out of his shell of being 09ers, etc. It was when she got angry about Logan defending Veronica for the sex tape. Her words, "Oh my God Veronica and Piz are having sex!" really set my teeth on edge. As a survivor, she should know better that the video was a breach of privacy."
“I wish that Parker had gone back with her parents to Denver. I feel like her character didn’t have any chemistry with the rest of the characters. Maybe if they had fleshed out her character more the way they did with Jackie I would have liked her better. In the show she is just flat and boring.”
“I don’t completely agree with her being portrayed as unsympathetic because she did generally feel really guilty about Parker’s rape and she vowed to solve the case and tried to be friends with Parker and get her to stop being so hostile towards her because she could relate to what she was going through.”

“After watching and re-watching this show since it started, I am 100% convinced Rob Thomas has a blonde girl fetish of some kind. The only girls that were featured heavily that weren’t blonde were Mac, Kendall, and Jackie. All the blondes I can think of that made some kind of impact in the series off the top of my head: Veronica, Lianne, Parker, Lilly, Madison, Hannah, Jane, Meg, and Molly. Serious blonde girl fetish.”
Note: Fun fact - Kendall was supposed to be played by Heather Graham and Trina was supposed to be played by Tara Reid. When they weren’t available, Charisma Carpenter and Alyson Hannigan took the roles, respectively.
"One thing I liked about episode 318 is the parallel between Veronica’s and Logan’s relationships at the time. How Logan planned his trip to South America and it never hit him it could bother Parker, and the same with Veronica and her internship. She couldn’t care less it was in Virginia and away from Piz, while of course he did care just as Parker did with Logan. I’m thinking it would have been different if LoVe was still together."
"I always kind of loved that moment when Logan races down the beach after Parker to the beautiful strains of Pela and turns back, shirt open, to jokingly yell at Bronson, "So, you can’t swim, huh?" It seemed like one of the first times he had any carefree fun with friends in a really, really long time."
