Rick and Morty Season 6 brought out a whole new side of Summer as she took on the main villain role in one of its most memorable episodes, and the star behind the character opened up about Summer going full bad! Summer has been changing quite a bit since her introduction in the first season as she has been proven capable to be able to handle things on her own. She’s built such a trust with Rick over the years that when it was flipped on its head in the new season, Summer proved she could also be quite the formidable villain.
Rick and Morty introduced a major new villain to the franchise with its debut of Night Summer during the “Night Family” episode of Season 6, and ComicBook.com got the chance to talk to Spencer Grammer about how she felt about Summer’s new villain turn in the series. Beginning with, “I love doing villainy things…I love that stuff. It was really fun and challenging to create [Night Summer’s] voice in a way and I would really enjoy doing it again.” Grammer then reflected on Summer’s many other changes.

“I love doing villainy things…I love that stuff. I think that’s been a natural progression,” Grammer continued when breaking down Summer’s potential villain future. “What’s lovely about these characters is they live within this family dynamic, and there’s always different facets of them that we can find. It’s been really enthralling and riveting to experience the transition of a character who started off pretty two-dimensionally and have it grow and change into a very three-dimensional character with a lot of different story and levels and facets to her.”

As Grammer continued, Summer’s changes have also been a reflection of just how much has changed over Rick and Morty’s run in the last ten years or so, “That’s really something that has also changed in media in general. It’s nice to be a part of that over these last 10-11 years.” Now that Grammer seems to be excited over Summer’s potential as a villain, it remains to be seen whether we get to see Night Summer again in the future episodes!
