Season 4 of Pretty Little Liars is shaping up to be pretty parent-heavy. Toby’s mom and Mrs. Dilaurentis will both factor into early-season storylines, and now it sounds like Emily’s mom, Pam Fields (Nia Peeples), will be getting some juicy stories of her own. Check out these tweets from Nia about Pam’s story arc:

“So far pam is in 3 of the first 4 eps of season 4 #pll some pretty hairy subjects!” Nia tweeted yesterday.

That’s quite impressive for a Rosewood parent. They usually don’t have so much to consistently do in PLL. We wonder if this has something to do with Pam’s recent hire at the Rosewood Police Department. It certainly integrates her into more of the town drama, and there is never a shortage of “hairy subjects” when it comes to Rosewood crime...Then again, there is never a shortage of “hairy subjects” when it comes to the Liars’ family lives either.

Nia also divulged that “from pam in season 4 you can expect....desperation....” That doesn’t sound like your everyday PD problem. Pam has already been torn between her loyalty to the police department and her loyalty to her daughter. When the dead body was found in the woods, she told Emily, even though it was confidential. Could this sort of dilemma present itself again? Perhaps having something to do with Wilden’s car? Given that the police cruiser is parked in Hanna’s front yard, it’s going to be tough for the Liars to get out of this one. But it might help if they have a friend in the police department.

What do you think Nia’s tweets mean? Are you excited to see more Pam in Season 4? Let us know in the comments below!
