Trivia

  • Summer is the first zombie, as well as the first zombie child, to appear and be killed in the TV Series.
  • Summer's name wasn't revealed until The Walking Dead Social Game was released, as she was left unnamed in the TV Series and was previously known as the "Little Girl Walker".
  • Summer appears as a purchasable Avatar Prop for the Xbox 360 called "Little Zombie" as well as her Dress for Female Avatars.[1][2]
    • Summer is one of the few Avatar Props available for Purchase, the others being Dale Horvath's RV and Rick's Tank.
  • Summer has her own life-size zombie prop.[3]
  • Summer displayed the possibly most uncharacteristic behavior of any zombie in the TV series by picking up and carrying a teddy bear for no possible reason other than what might have been a distant memory or recognition of a stuffed animal when she was alive.
  • Actress Addy Miller, who portrayed Summer, returned as a similar-looking walker in the Season 8 premiere "Mercy", complete with a bath robe and slippers.
  • She is the only known character across all The Walking Dead media to wear braces.
