Erica is emotionally confused. On their three month anniversary, Ryan tells her that he loves her, a place where she is not yet at. And she still seems to have unresolved feelings for Ethan, despite he who is trying to reconcile with his wife, Claire. Ryan can sense something still lingering between Ethan and Erica. To resolve her current conundrum, Dr. Tom sends Erica back to a previous relationship with Cassidy Holland, one that ended just before Y2K. Erica emphatically states that Cassidy is the most amazing woman she has ever met, and a person on whom she had a crush. Although Cassidy was openly gay, Erica states her feelings were not in a romantic way despite she knowing that Cassidy wanted something more between them. This time around, Erica wants to ensure that Cassidy knows that she is straight so that they can deal with the issue head on and thus maintain their friendship. But this revisit to her past makes her truly confront her feelings for Cassidy, and how that may impact ... Written by Huggo

Super Gay Episode: Chick Show Goes Where Men's Fantasies Loves To Go
29 April 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

"All She Ever Wanted", according to my set. Just watched this. Researching it, just saw a Google entry of YouTube item exclaiming 'Super Gay Episode'. It was also the episode that lured me in. Months ago I was searching more info on BEING ERICA than just the delightful Season 1 box cover with the short dress and feathery shoes, and I downloaded the exact excerpt that proffered itself on VuClip. Turned out it was from this ninth episode which I only reached this afternoon.

It was beautifully done, set against a Y2K-bug backdrop at the close of 1999. Straight chick Erica discovered she has feelings after all for her friend Cassidy Holland (Anna Silk) who tried her utmost to gently seduce her. That beautiful finger-painting scene... But Erika snaps out of it and insists that she is straight.

I was reminded of a lesson I had learned right here on IMDb on the message boards researching LOST AND DELIRIOUS. You fall in love with the person, not with the gender. And something I've learned long ago out of an interview with Cindy Crawford. The world needs love. There is too little of it in this awful world. Who cares where you find it? As long as you find it!

This is a surprising turn of events, not that it is exactly a staid show, but it is quite unexpected. Presented in a totally mature way. I wonder how many people would still have found it unacceptable? Millions, I suppose, but in this day and age, perhaps a couple million less than, say, two decades ago?

Erin Karpluk used Carrie from SEX & THE CITY, Sarah Jessica Parker, as style inspiration. The photograph here on the entry clearly shows the look.

Raven-haired Anna Silk did a particularly fine turn as jilted Cassidy. Heartbreaking, poignant and entirely convincing. Without checking it out, I can already deduct that she's not going to appear again*; regular cast gets top billing out in front with the credits, irrespective of an appearance in the episode. But that was a mistake! She should have appeared at least once more!

*sneaking a peek at her Wikipedia entry, today learned that she is to appear twice more in the series. Good!

Another find is Paula Brancati as Jenny. She's cute, looks warm and gossip-y, and should have appeared as the best friend earlier, rather than Vinessa Antoine.

Yet another winner was the Spice Girl song "Spice Up Your Life" accompanying the dancing sequence - it fitted the ambiance perfectly. Anna Silk was especially gloriously good here.

The concept of the show as a whole is definitely more 'chick flick' than most garage mechanics would be able to bear, but guys would be well rewarded watching the series. As for this 'Super Gay Episode', it alone is worth my effort of obtaining the series.
