Haven, Maine, a town where people with supernatural abilities have moved to for years to mute their powers, allowing them to lead normal lives. At least until recently. Following the capture of a killer FBI agent Audrey Parker uncovers a mystery, the town-peoples' powers are beginning to rise.

Audrey is further linked to the town when she is given an old newspaper clipping with the heading "Who Killed The Colorado Kid?", bearing a picture of a woman named Lucy Ripley who strongly resembles her. Audrey spends much of her time investigating Lucy's past and the possibility that she is her mother, but she uncovers evidence that Lucy may, in fact, be Audrey herself. In the Season 1 finale, she concludes that she and Lucy are the same person, moments before a woman identifying herself as "Special Agent Audrey Parker" confronts her and Nathan. As Audrey gets to know Audrey #2, she discovers that they share memories or, perhaps more accurately, her memories are those of Audrey #2.
Audrey seems to have had more than one past life, for, beside the evidence that she is in fact Lucy Ripley, in Fear and Loathing there is another woman apparently from the past who looks like Audrey and Lucy. When Dave Teagues sees the Troubled Jackie Clarke, who appears to the people who look at her as their worst fear, he sees a woman with bushy red hair, 1950s clothing and Audrey's face (later revealed to be named Sarah Vernon). Dave's fear probably arises from an earlier outbreak of The Troubles, so the person who is now Audrey appears to return to Haven whenever there is an outbreak of The Troubles. On another occasion, Audrey discovers she can instinctively play the piano, even though Audrey Parker never learned.
In Business As Usual, Audrey finally meets the real Lucy Ripley. In the 1980s Audrey, as Lucy Ripley, arrived in Haven and assisted the Troubled. The real Lucy explains that Audrey/Lucy discovered something about the Troubles, how they began and possibly how they could be stopped. On the run from someone who wanted to "erase" her, Audrey/Lucy sought out the real Lucy, telling her that one day, she (Audrey/Lucy) would seek her out. At the end of a cycle of Troubles Audrey entered a building that appeared as a barn and her memory would be erased. However, Audrey/Lucy refused to enter the barn and tried to escape, though she was captured and brought to the barn, as explained by Jordan McKee in Burned. After learning that Simon Crocker was one of the ones who was chasing her, Audrey confronted Duke, and the pair discovered that the Crocker family has been trying to kill her for some time (Business As Usual).
Later the Teagues brothers have a conversation which reveals that the person who is Audrey/Lucy has visited Haven before under the name of Sarah Vernon and - as Dave mentioned - before that time at least once more under a name unknown to the Teagues. Sarah is a nurse sent to Haven by her captain—who is Audrey's Agent Howard—to look after returning veterans from WWII (Sarah). When Nathan is thrown back to 1955, he and Sarah have a brief relationship. The Colorado Kid (James Cogan) is the result (Thanks for the Memories).

Audrey Parker Quotes
|Season 5 / Episode 26: - Forever|
Audrey Parker: Vince said that if I go into The Barn with my father, I could activate the Aether in to stop the void, end the 27 year cycle. All the troubled would live and the troubles would be gone forever. It would be finally over, Nathan.

Audrey Parker: I'm so sorry.
Nathan Wuornos: [he pulls her into a hug] What do you have to be sorry for?
Audrey Parker: Leaving you. I wanted us to have more time.
Nathan Wuornos: We'll always want more time. The trick will be being thankful for the time we had. We had an amazing time.
Audrey Parker: Yeah, we did.
Nathan Wuornos: And I spent so much of it trying to keep you here, but now I realize the reason I love you is because you're willing to go. You are an amazing person, Audrey Parker. I never felt anything until I met you. You saved me. You made me real. I love you, Audrey. I will always love you.
Audrey Parker: Nathan, promise me something.
Nathan Wuornos: Anything.
Audrey Parker: I want you to be okay. I don't want you to be alone, so promise me that you will find someone, you will find someone that will make you happy, and you will move on.
Nathan Wuornos: [voiceover] Move on? How could I ever do that? I will think about you every minute, of every hour, of every day, and that's why I'll be okay. After everything you've done for the people of this town, for me, Parker, You'll be with me in all the people who's pain you've taken away. With me in all the people in this town who are free to live, and love, and grow, without fear. When the sun finally shines down on Haven again, you'll be with me in all the families we've put back together, and the ones out in the world who've suffered with troubles, too. You'll be with me when Haven returns to the world and becomes the town we both know it can be. Every person that we have hope, faith that something good could happen for all of us. You'll be with me in every person who's happy now, at peace. Because you, Audrey, I'll never forget you. You will always be with me, and no matter what happens, I will always love you...
|Season 5 / Episode 25: - Now|
Audrey Parker: We used you. *I* used you. When we found out about the Crocker family curse, about what it could do, I used that as a tool to stop the Troubles because that's what I was sent here to do. But I didn't think about how much it was going to hurt you, how killing all of those people, how... how it would change you.
Duke Crocker: It didn't change anything. This was always meant to be.
Audrey Parker: I don't think it was. I think you were fighting your destiny. And if left alone, maybe you might have even won. But I didn't know that. And I came along, and I sent you on that path, and for that, I am truly sorry. I know how it feels, Duke, to be fighting to be the person that you want to be when everyone is telling you to be someone else. Croatoan thinks that I'm his daughter. I... I look like her. I sound like her. Do you know how easy it would be to just say, "Sure. It's good to see you, Dad", and stop being scared? I am so tired. I'm so tired of fighting my destiny. But I can't give up. Because when I look in the mirror, I only see me. I see the person that I truly am. The only person I want to be. So tell me, Duke, when you look in the mirror, when no one else is around, who - are - you?
Duke Crocker: I'm Duke Crocker.
