—Freddy to Summer in Total Eclipse of the Heart
In Total Eclipse of the Heart, Freddy realizes that he and Summer have similar interests and starts to develop feelings for her. From Season 1, up until Total Eclipse of the Heart, Summer liked Freddy.
The following is a set a moments in each episode in School of Rock. Please only add facts, and no false information or you could be blocked.
In Come Together, Summer saw Freddy skateboard throughout the school hallway. She was super impressed with him and Tomika convinced her to ask him out but Summer still had to get his hopes up. In the halfway of the episode, Summer flirted with Freddy but became a failure.
In Cover Me, Summer tries to get Freddy's attention at the beginning of the episode, but it backfires when Summer sprays Freddy, blinding his eyes. Next, Summer suggested to the class that they should be in study groups and she would choose Freddy as her study partner. Freddy responds by saying he didn't listen as he was reading a dirt bike magazine. Then, Summer wanted Tomika's help to skateboard to impress Freddy. Tomika offered to help and Summer skateboarded but Freddy didn't look. This made Summer want to do something else to impress Freddy, by singing. Tomika helps her by using a tune harmonica but Summer sings badly and then Tomika shows her how by singing Lips Are Movin' by Meghan Trainor. Freddy and Mr. Finn hear her voice singing and run to the classroom to see who was singing and Tomika tells them that Summer was singing. Mr. Finn asks Summer to be the lead singer and to sing in front of the whole class the next day. That leads Summer to lip sync and Tomika sings for her outside of the classroom. Tomika took the spot of lead singer after Summer convinced her but as they hugged, Mr. Finn had heard the girl's conversation and made Summer the cowbell player and told her she needed to stand right next to the drummer (Freddy). When Summer went over to her spot Freddy thanked her for stepping up for the band, Summer replied and said that Tomika was the singer and Freddy answered back by saying that she convinced Tomika that she should be the lead singer and that what she did was really cool, they both smiled at each other and then he told Summer to count them in.
In Video Killed the Speed Debate Star, Freddy tells the band that they need a better system for hiding their instruments, but then Summer quickly responded by saying that what Freddy said was utter and total nonsense and that it was based on false logic. Freddy than questions it but Summer who says no, and that he actually had a good point, and that she was actually just practicing for her debate on Wedsnday.
In The Story About Us (But More About Me), the camera caught Freddy staring and smiling at Summer a couple of times but in the end of the episode when Summer had wrote an awesome song Freddy smiled at Summer and congratulated her and Summer smiled at him.
In We're Not Gonna Take It, Summer loved the way on how Freddy dyed his hair as a way to express himself. Summer also ended up telling in front of Freddy that she has a crush on him and immediately says another statement to hide the fact that she has a crush on him. When Freddy ended up going to Principal Mullins for dying his hair, Summer seems worried and says "NO!" when Tomika says the principal could be cutting his hair. She is also the person who suggested they should all dye their hair and they succeed. Freddy and Summer also hold hands as part of a sit-in protesting Zack's removal from Mr. Finn's class.
In We Can Be Heroes, Sort Of, the camera caught Summer smiling at Freddy a couple of times. Also, Freddy and Summer sit together during lunch and don't like how Tomika is being too tough on the band, so both of them don't want Tomika to sit at the lunch table.
In Should I Stay Or Should I Go, Summer says to Tomika that one of her priorities dealing with Battle of the Bands is that she will kiss Freddy in the midst of excitement when they win Battle of the Bands. Freddy overhears them and Summer says another statement to hide the fact she has a crush on him. Next, at the band audition, Freddy suggests to Summer that she should boss them around as the rest of the band can't get their act together, but only Summer can do it. Summer smiles and says that she was expecting a response like that from him. Later, Summer hugs Freddy excitingly when Mr. Finn says Summer is the new band manager of School of Rock.
In Money (That's What I Want), Summer dumps her mini-purse full of cents on his desk when he says he will charge people watching his skateboarding tricks. When his board gets confiscated, Freddy asks if people would just be interested to see him be him. Summer enthusiastically dumps the rest of the money from her mini-purse in which Freddy stares at Mr. Finn, who knows Summer has a crush on Freddy. Next, Freddy asks Summer if he can work for her cupcake business which elates her and asks him to deliver a cupcake to Laura from Regina. Summer gets so excited and Freddy responds that their first cupcake delivery is super exciting. Summer, however, is excited about her spending time with Freddy. When the two of them have a private meeting, Summer says they should have meetings every day including Saturday Night. Freddy then replies he sometimes goes to the movies on Saturday Night, in which Summer says that's not a problem and that he should pick her up at 8. Then, Regina busts in the meeting and complains about the cupcake being delivered to her and someone sitting on it. Next, Regina said that Summer should fire Freddy, Summer defends Freddy by saying that Regina is a customer who doesn't know how to run a business . Freddy smiles and says that he knows his work is being appreciated by Summer. Next, Freddy and Summer go over the finances with Mr. Finn and Tomika. Freddy and Summer are revealed to have made seventy dollars, but ended up with twenty dollars due to refunds. Then, Mr. Finn complains about his cupcake not being good and Summer asks Freddy why he kept messing up deliveries. In response, Freddy changes the subject by saying that she is an excellent boss, which delights Summer. The next day, Summer shows to Tomika that she bought matching vests for her and Freddy. Tomika asks why they need the buisness since they made enough money to enter the Battle of the Bands. Summer responds that without the business, she and Freddy can't go to a company picnic together. When she has to revive the business after financial problems, she decides to tell Freddy he is fired for the cupcake delivery issue. However, Freddy gives her his good looks which makes Summer say he is getting a promotion, which delights Freddy. At the end of the episode, Freddy reveals that he got tips from girls who ordered cupcakes, Summer asks how he did it. When Freddy says hello to a woman in a gentleman manner, the woman gives him money and Summer smiles and says to Freddy, " Oh, Right.", which reminds her of Freddy using his good looks and manners to impress Summer so he could keep his job in Summer's cupcake buisness.
In Freddy Fights for His Right to Party, Summer is against the idea of Freddy attending the Lacrosse Team's Party. Summer believes that the older girls would go crazy over him. In fact, she even argues with a picture of Freddy that she keeps in her locker and then apologizes by saying that she can't be mad at a boy so cute. When Summer sees Freddy spending time with an older girl, she is so mad because she is touching Freddy's hair and she wants to beat her up. Then, she decides to hold a party on the same night of the Lacrosse Team and gives Freddy an invitation. Next, when Freddy comes to the table she is sitting at, Summer says to him that she can make room for him and pushes Lawrence out of the table. When Zack messes up Freddy's hair, Summer screams in horror, until Tomika covers up her mouth. On the day of the party, Summer is proud that Freddy decided to hang out with his real friends. At the end of the episode, when Zack and Freddy do their dance, Summer and Tomika see it. Summer just smiles as the two boys do their dance.
In (Really Really) Old Time Rock and Roll, Summer and Freddy support Lawrence's efforts to tell his crush Esme on how he feels. At the end of Lawrence's performance declaring his love of Esme, the whole band congratulates Lawrence. When Freddy says that Lawrence's idea was so cool that he would use the same strategy if he ever had feelings for a girl, Summer smiled and said she can't wait for Freddy to sing to her. Summer eventually says that she can't wait to hear what Esme said about Lawrence's performance as a way to hide the fact that she has a crush on Freddy.
In We Are the Champions ... Maybe, instead of being angry, Summer smiles as she asks Freddy on why he didn't know the track team would be in the hallways. Next, when the band tries to escape from the roof so they could perform, the chain to open the door falls apart and Freddy and Summer fall together unharmed. Freddy tells Summer that opening the door was important and Summer replies " Was that what we were doing?" and hugs him with a smile on her face. In the last minutes of the episode, Freddy and Summer hold the trophy for winning Battle of the Bands.
In Wouldn't It Be Nice?, Summer is ecstatic that Freddy's locker was blown up due to an explosion in the teacher's lounge. She asks Freddy if he would like to share her locker (if she ever asked as her question was hypothetical) and he would say yes, making Summer so happy that she dances in front of the school hallway. She stops by to see Tomika, and in honor of sharing a locker, she made t-shirts saying "Fremmer", which they say is used when celebrities mash up their names as a couple. However, Summer wants to ask Freddy the same question again because she didn't think it was official. However, the plan backfires and Zack ends up sharing with Summer. When Zack says to Freddy that he is sharing a locker with Summer, Freddy seems puzzled and a bit unhappy. He eventually shares a locker with a girl named Kale. Summer notices Freddy sharing a locker with Kale and becomes really jealous that she throws a tantrum in front of Mr. Finn. Next, Freddy screams to Summer that he was so unhappy to not share a locker with her. In the end, the tensions are solved.
In With or Without You, Summer was surprised to find that Freddy liked a movie that she thought was a waste of time. So, she asked Tomika about what the movie was going to be about. Later, when they watch the movie, Freddy is impressed at how Summer is an 'expert' on the movie and the series of it.
In Brilliant Disguise, Summer tried to confess to Freddy her feelings for him. However, things didn't go according to plan. Summer tried to speak to Freddy, but she became so nervous she ran away from him. In the Student Council meeting, Summer exhibited behavior that showed signs of jealousy such as screaming at Freddy and banging the gavel very hard because she watched with dread as Freddy and Kale were talking to each other and Summer was also fearing that Kale was going to steal her crush. At the dance, Summer had the same behavior and finally told her feelings. However, she thought she told her feelings to Freddy, but instead she told it to the janitor. In the end, Summer watches with sadness as Freddy and Kale dance the night away.
In Welcome to My Nightmare, Summer delegated jobs to each individual members of the band. When she gave a job to Freddy, she asked him to help bake cupcakes, which really surprised him.
In Truckin', when Lawrence and Mr. Finn threw up food onto Summer, Freddy gave her a napkin or tissue to wipe off the food from her clothes. Then, Zacks finds Freddy and Summer eating food on a stick and asks them why they are eating food from his competitor. Freddy and Summer try to lie by saying it was just his imagination and he should go back to sleep.
In Voices Carry, when Freddy is stuck in the Aca-Fellas, Summer suggests that she pretends she has a disease and then kiss him so he would be 'infected' with the 'disease'. When Freddy performed in the school eating area, Summer was smiling towards him because he had an amazing singing voice until Tomika nudged Summer to stop making those faces to him.
In Is She Really Going Out With Him, Summer treats Freddy much more gently than Mr. Finn, Zack, and Lawrence. She also started to exhibit signs of jealousy when Freddy started talking positively about Kale by banging the drums so loud and even breaking his drumsticks. Summer tells to Tomika that she is losing him and that she is going to marry him some day. Unlike in Brilliant Disguise, Summer uses the advice of Tomika's brother's girlfriend. It doesn't really work out and Freddy had part of his sweater ripped. When the school day is over, Freddy asks Summer on what to give Kale for their one month anniversary. Summer then tries to act like Kale such as dressing like her, acting like her, and liking her mud shakes so Freddy would notice her, which ends up in squirrels chasing her. Summer then unleashes a plot in which she says to Kale that Freddy loves hats (Freddy actually hates hats) and that she should give Freddy a hat as a present. Summer will then plan to give Freddy new drumsticks. However, realizing that Kale is actually a very nice person, she backs out of it after becoming more friendly with Kale and gives Kale the drumsticks and Summer gives the hat to Tomika until she realizes it's garbage. In the end, Summer watches as Freddy and Kale walk out of school with their gifts, although she knew she did the right thing to make them happy.
In Total Eclipse of the Heart, Summer decides to finally get over her crush with Freddy. She plans to be with Freddy and Kale all night in the school-lock in so she would end up forgetting about them. She spends some time with Freddy and Kale, talking to them and witnessing them release a hornet into it's habitat. Summer starts to get a rash and goes with Asher to the bathroom. When she is in the school eating area with the couple, Summer notices that her rash (which she gets from seeing Freddy and Kale as a couple) is gone and allows Asher to go to the bathroom by himself. Summer, by then, finally decides to really get over her crush of Freddy and tears out the picture of Freddy she kept in her locker. But then, a plot twist occurs right after Summer gets over her crush on Freddy and the relationship between Freddy and Summer starts to change in a fundamental way that it ends up bringing more romance into it. It happened when Freddy visited Summer at the rooftop to see the eclipse that was taking place the same night as the school-lock in. Summer is surprised to see him and asks him if he and Kale are done with their garbage quilt. Freddy responds by saying the problem with garbage quilts is you can't tell when you're done. Then, Summer asks Freddy to look into the telescope to see the eclipse. Freddy is amazed to see the eclipse and Summer responds by saying that the eclipse is known as a blood moon. Freddy then stops looking into the telescope and seems jubilant and surprised to find out that Summer is into Astronomy, a subject that he is also into. Summer responds by saying she had an interest in that subject since she was eight and how she wanted people to call her Cassiopeia, but instead people called her "Peia". The camera then recorded Freddy and Summer smiling and chuckling at each other. While Summer looks into the telescope, Freddy smiles at Summer (this is one of the signs that shows he's starting to harbor feelings for her) and says to Summer that there is something different about her in a good way. Summer smiles and asks Freddy to ask Kale to see the eclipse. Freddy laughs and says that Kale is so interested in saving the earth that he is afraid to introduce her to another part of the solar system. Summer says to him that he should ask her to see the eclipse before it's over. After that, Freddy starts to leaves the rooftop but not before he stared at Summer and smiled at her, while she was looking into the telescope. Next, Freddy and Kale break up because Freddy doesn't share the same interests as Kale. With that being done, Freddy now wants to ask Summer to be his girlfriend since they share similar interests and have great chemistry towards each other. At the end, however, he sees Summer and Asher together (Asher putting his sweater on Summer) and walks away heartbroken, not fulfilling his promise to ask her to be his girlfriend.
In Takin' Care of Business, Freddy asks Tomika to do a dare. Summer responds by pretending to be someone else urging Summer and Tomika to help Mr. Finn study for his exam. Freddy responds by saying to Tomika that she shouldn't listen to them (meaning Summer). The camera then recorded Freddy looking at Summer until he turns to Tomika and asks her to do the dare.
In Hold on Loosely, Freddy was surprised and impressed on how good Summer was playing the drums and he was smiling at her. When Freddy was about to leave, he told Summer that he had a few things to say to her. It is implied here that he was gonna confess his feelings for her. He hesitates for a while when he says that "You're a really amazing" to Summer and she smiles at him. He then says that she is a really good drummer and tries to tell more about his feelings for her, but after saying that she's great at drumming, Summer displays an excellent drum solo. It was also Summer who was the first to enthusiastically respond to Freddy being able to stay close to his friends instead of going to Miami.

Summer: (Upon seeing Freddy skateboarding past her in the hallway) "I'm not impressed...I am so impressed!"
Summer: "Can't you say he's (Freddy) cute like a normal person?"
Freddy: (Regarding Mr. Finn idea of eating the donuts from the teacher's lounge) "I'm in!"
Summer: (In agreement) "Me too! Freddy and I are in."
Summer: (Using her idea of having study partners over Mr. Finn actually teaching) "Who should be my study partner? I'll just pick the first person who comes to my mind, completely random. Freddy?"
Freddy: (When Summer keeps Freddy as her co-worker after Regina wants him fired for messing up her cupcake order for Laura) "Thanks Summer! I'm glad my hard work is appreciated."
Freddy: " Hey Summer."
Summer: "Oh hey! I didn't think you were coming. Are you done with your garbage quilt?"
Freddy: "The thing about garbage quilts is that it's really hard to tell when you're done."
Summer: (Points to the blood moon) "Check it out."
Freddy: (Looks through the telescope and sees the Blood Moon) "Whoa! That's pretty awesome! The moon looks so red."
Summer: "Yeah. It's called a blood moon."
Freddy: I didn't know you were into astronomy too.
Summer: "Oh, yeah! For a little while when I was eight, I wanted people to call me 'Cassiopeia', but they just called me 'Peia' instead, so..."
(Freddy smiles at her while she's looking through the telescope. He's beginning to have feelings for her, but doesn't recognize then as so at that point.)
Freddy: "There's something different about you tonight."
Summer: "Hey, you should get Kale to come up here! She'd probably really like it." (She could be oblivious to his feelings for her and the meaning behind the sentence, or maybe she wasn't really paying attention.)
Freddy: "I don't know. She's so obsessed with saving the Earth, I'm kind of afraid of introducing her to another part of the solar system."
Summer: "Aw, come on. You should ask her before it's over."
(Freddy glances at Summer, who isn't looking back at him, and smiles again before going back down into the school to get Kale. He tries to get Kale to come with him but they break up after he says he doesn't like the same things she does. When Freddy returns to the roof, he sees Summer smiling up at Asher, who is putting his jacket around her. Freddy goes down into the school again, heartbroken and jealous of Asher being with Summer before him. It is possible that he may have tried to spend more time with her and confess his feelings, but he chose not to when he sees Asher talking to Summer on the roof.)
Freddy: " [Nervously] Summer, now that I'm leaving.. there's a few things that I wish I'd told you.. Like, um.. You're a really.. amazing... DRUMMER! and-"
Summer: "Thanks, Freddy! I was just warming up!"
(Summer then proceeds to play a hardcore drum solo as Freddy disappointedly leaves the classroom at the failed attempt of admitting his feelings for her.)
Freddy: ".. You know, if you're that interested, I hear writing the blog is a big honor."
Summer: "Aw, I couldn't want to take that honor away from you!"
Freddy: "I don't need honor, I got [pointing towards face] this."
(Summer nods in agreement)
- In the first season, they had a relationship by Summer's side. Since Total Eclipse of the Heart, it changed. Seems like after Summer got over Freddy, Freddy started to see who she is (and not who she pretended to be for him) and started to like her and then, they have a relationship by Freddy's side. This is a flipped version of how Freddy didn't have feelings for Summer in the series up to that point.
- In the Season 1 episode "Cover Me", Mr. Finn learns that Summer likes Freddy. This may conflict into Freddy and Summer being together, as Mr. Finn doesn't know that Freddy likes Summer now and she doesn't feel the same way back. Freddy may confess that he likes Summer to Mr. Finn, and believing Summer still has feelings for Freddy, Mr. Finn might set them up which could lead to some problems.
- They will probably end up dating, but instead of Freddy telling Summer he has feelings for her and having Summer reciprocate, there will most likely be a triangle between him, Summer, and Asher (who may also like Summer).
- Jama Williamson posted a picture on Instagram where Freddy touches Summer's hair and stares into her eyes, saying something to her. However, this appears to be part of an episode later in Season 3.
- An Instagram livestream featuring Jade Pettyjohn, Ricardo Hurtado, and Will Kindrachuk confirmed that an episode of Season 3 will revolve around the Freddy, Summer, and Asher love triangle.
