- "I really like you Hoyt and I really want you to taste my biscuits."
- ―Summer, to Hoyt Fortenberry[src]
Summer is a girl who briefly dates Hoyt Fortenberry on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American guest starring actress Melissa Rauch, Summer makes her debut on the episode "Trouble", in the series' third season. Set up with Hoyt by his mother Maxine to keep him away from the Vampire Jessica Hamby, Summer dates Hoyt for only a short time before he breaks up with her, as he is still in love with Jessica. Playing a recurring role through the same season, Summer was last seen in "Evil is Going On".
Summer visited Hoyt at Jason's house and brought him homemade biscuits. She came over to tell him that she has feelings for him, and wanted to be his girlfriend, leaving Hoyt mostly speechless. She cleans up the house for him. ("Hitting the Ground")
They both later went to Merlotte's and are seen again together by Jessica. Summer politely introduces herself to Jessica, who inadvertently bears her fangs and leaves embarrassed. Afterwards while sitting down to eat, Summer praises Hoyt for "choosing life," and being with her instead of a dead thing like Jessica. When Summer excuses herself to the bathroom, Hoyt confides in Jessica that he completely hates Summer, bringing up how she never lets him get a word in, and how her pathological love of dolls drives him nuts, giving Jessica cause to question Hoyt "Then what are you doing with her?" to which Hoyt replies it's better than being left alone all day to mourn being apart from Jessica. ("Everything Is Broken")
After leaving Merlotte's, Summer surprises Hoyt by suggesting that they have sex, in order for Hoyt to forget about Jessica. After this Hoyt dumps Summer and returns to Jessica. ("I Smell a Rat")
Maxine and Summer have an intervention at Hoyt's work even inviting Hoyt's high school counselor. They both talked about why they wanted him not to be with Jessica, mainly pointing out that she's a vampire. Their plan fails and Hoyt tells her that he wishes that she finds her a good husband, but that he's not him. ("Evil is Going On")
