Gold-star parent. Save for one minor suggestion that Emily could be "experimenting" with her sexuality, Wayne is the only PLL parent who truly does nothing wrong throughout the entire series. He accepts Emily for who she is far before Pam ever manages, and he plays a consistent and active role in his daughter's life even throughout his deployment. He edits Emily's papers from overseas, shows up at her school just to surprise her, and stops at nothing to protect her, even once scaling the side of a building to save her despite having a heart condition. His blocks of absence only make his rare appearances all the more cherished. He is perhaps the only character on the show who truly does not deserve his untimely death. Rest in peace, Wayne Fields. You are sorely missed.
