Parker Lee is a fictional character on The CW television series "Veronica Mars". She is portrayed by Julie Gonzalo.

Background

Parker Lee is Cindy "Mac" Mackenzie's roommate at Hearst College. She is a Capricorn and her hometown is in Denver, Colorado. [http://www.myspace.com/vmarsparker]

Parker is immediately welcoming to Mac, and wants to be good friends. When she meets Mac's good friend, Veronica, she says, "Mac's friends are my friends!" and welcomes Veronica with open arms. She enjoys partying and having a "good time", so when Veronica discovers Mac sitting outside her dorm room, Mac tells her that Parker is with a guy inside, and that their movie tickets are also inside. Veronica goes inside, trying her best to avoid Parker's "activities", gets the tickets, and leaves. That night, Veronica stayed in Mac's dorm room. They awoke the next morning to Parker's screams: she was looking at her own bald image in the mirror. She had not been having consensual sex. Parker had become the next victim of the Hearst College rapist, who had raped Parker and shaved her head. Veronica felt extremely guilty, as she had been in the room when Parker was raped and did nothing to stop it. (Veronica did not know that a rape was happening.) Parker was, at first, extremely angry at Veronica because of this, but later become friends with her upon learning of Veronica's own rape at the hands of Cassidy Casablancas. In episode 3.6, Parker went bowling with Veronica, Logan and Piz, and began to become attracted to Piz. However, when they went to visit Piz at his radio show, Parker met Mercer, the head of the gambling club which had been robbed in the previous episode, and realized that his cologne smelled just like the cologne she had smelled on her rapist. Veronica investigates further and finds a razor in Mercer's drawers...leading us to believe that perhaps Mercer is the Hearst College rapist.

In the final episode of the first "arc" of Season 3, there was a Pi Sig party held because Dean O'Dell reinstated the Greek houses. At that same party, the Hearst rapist announced that he/she would choose their next victim at the party. Trying to help out her fellow classmates, Parker hands out special coasters that allow a girl to see if her drink was spiked or not, and also "rape whistles" to blow in case there's an attempted rape. Later that night, as Veronica finds out the whereabouts of Mercer and his next rape victim, Veronica hides the prospective victim in the closet but Mercer finds out it is Veronica hiding under the covers. They fight and Veronica escapes out of the room and falls down at Wallace and Piz's door. Veronica is helped by Moe who takes her to his dorm room. Veronica is drugged by Moe, who is in cahoots with Mercer, and is about to become the next rape victim. Veronica tries to call her father but gets no answer. Veronica blows her whistle which brings Parker out of her room, shaken to hear the sound of the whistle. She then sees Mercer (the rapist) heading back to the room in which he and Moe, the RA and his assistant, are keeping Veronica, and immediately screams "RAPE! RAPE! RAPE!" This brings a dozen or so students into the hall to invesigate, and Mercer runs away, followed by Moe. Parker runs into the room and finds Veronica on the floor, and calls for help. Therefore, had it not been for Parker and her "rape whistles", Veronica probably would have been the next rape victim, and the Hearst rapist would still be on the loose.

Parker also had a brief romantic relationship with Logan Echolls, whom she hit it off with at a Valentine's Day scavenger hunt she participated in with Mac and her boyfriend. Logan was roped into it and he and Parker had a good time, then were seen eating together in the cafeteria. In "Papa's Cabin", both Logan and Parker, at separate times, ask Veronica for permission to date each other. However, the relationship soon runs into difficulties as Parker finds it difficult to understand Logan's moods and reasons for doing things. She asks Veronica for advice and Veronica does her best to help her. Parker and Logan plan to go away for the summer, which means that Parker will not have to spend the holidays with her controlling and overprotective parents. However, in "The Bitch is Back", Parker sees from Logan's intense protective reaction to the video of Veronica and Piz that he still has feelings for Veronica, and breaks up with him, leaving her single, miserable and under her parents' thumb once more.
