Marika, Super Fun Night
Marika (Lauren Ash)
Comedy series Super Fun Night followed Kimmie and her two best friends Marika and Helen-Alice as they ventured out and started meeting new people, after spending every weekend for the past 13 years together in the comfort of their homes. From the first episode Marika was presented as a tomboy who had never had a boyfriend, and there were small indications throughout that she might be interested in women.
Marika started questioning her sexuality in 1×14 “Lucindervention” (out of 17 episodes) when she thought she was being asked out by her male friend, Ruby, who only thought she would make a great wing-woman. When Marika told Ruby she though they were on a date he answered with surprise; “What do you mean? You’re gay!”. Marika was stunned. “Excuse me? No, no – why would you even say that?”. During her outing with Ruby, Marika also met Frankie, and seemed intrigued by her. At the end of the episode Ruby came by to ask Marika out on a real date, but she declined.
In the series penultimate episode Frankie invited Marika to a Valentine’s Day party at a women’s bar, but she wasn’t sure about going and instead went with Helen-Alice to their friend’s single ladies’ night. At the party it turned out that Marika was the only one there who had never kissed a girl. That shocked their friend Kendall who kissed Marika and asked her what it felt like. “Nothing,” then “Fireworks.” She answered.
Marika then headed to the bar Frankie was at and kissed her. The two were dating in the next episode, which was also the series finale. Marika came out to her friends and called Frankie her girlfriend. Super Fun Night was cancelled after one season.
