The news comes the morning after the Season 6B finale, in which Parker was involved in a big plot twist: She is the twin of Rosewood, named Mary Drake, who had been teased by “PLL” creator Marlene King. During Tuesday’s finale, #TwinOnPLL was trending on social media, as Parker’s storyline was revealed.
Parker’s promotion clues in “Liars” fans on one sure thing: Mary Drake is not going anywhere next season.
Parker first appeared in the “Pretty Little Liars” pilot as Mrs. DiLaurentis, mother of Alison (Sasha Pieterse), and has appeared in episodes in every season, most heavily in season four, when her character Mrs. D was killed. She appeared flashbacks in seasons five and six, until last night when she appeared as a new character — Mrs. D’s twin.
Season seven — which may be the final season of the series, though no official announcement has been made — returns this summer.
