Summer is a character in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is one of the first walkers to be seen and killed by Rick Grimes.


Location Unknown

Very little is known about Summer's life before or as the outbreak began, except that she had a mother, a father, and an uncle.


Social Game

"The Outbreak Begins"

Summer and her family find refuge with Shane Walsh, Lori Grimes, T-Dog, and many other survivors. While at the camp, her mother, father, and uncle are all killed. After losing her family, she runs away, and is eventually bitten by a walker.

Season 1

"Days Gone Bye"

Summer is seen reanimated as a walker at a gas station near Interstate 85. Summer is witnessed by Rick Grimes, who mistakes her for a living girl, as she picks up her teddy bear. She walks towards Rick when he attempts to help her. When she begins to walk faster, Rick pulls out his .357 Colt Python revolver, shooting her, causing her to fall backwards, dead.


Killed By

She was bitten by walkers and reanimated.

Rick found her at a gas station and shot her in the head with his .357 Colt Python revolver before she could attack him.


TV Series

Season 1


  • She is the first character to die in Season 1, and the series overall.
  • 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'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.
