SUPERSTORE’s “Blizzard” and its forced togetherness had an unexpected side effect: Sandra (Kaliko Kauahi) and Jerry (Chris Grace) rekindled their relationship.

Of course, the secret didn’t last for long, as Dina (Lauren) walked in on the two of them hooking up in the episode’s final moments.

“It’s always surprising!” Kauahi says. “When you start as a character on the show, you start from scratch. Every week you learn a little more, so I’ve become accustomed to that surprise. But that one was a little bit extra. What a plot twist. I never know what’s going to happen with me, Jerry, and Carol.”

The triangle has always been convoluted—few on-screen love triangles include being willing to have your rival die in a natural disaster, nor a coupling decided on by a coin flip—but in the Carol (Irene White) and Sandra rivalry, “we both, as characters, think we have the upper hand and will ultimately win,” Kauahi says with a laugh. “Honestly, even to this point [in production], I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Though not quite as volatile, the relationship between Sandra and Dina has also been complicated, so Sandra having to rely on her discretion is a bit of a wild card.

“Dina and Sandra have a strong relationship, but a strange one,” allows Kauahi. “I think Sandra believes deep down they are friends; there’s love there. I think Dina has respect for her code of conduct. If that was in her rules to keep a secret for a friend or she doesn’t care at all, she’ll keep that secret. We’ll see how long she can pull it off.”

Kauahi is a little torn about whether she ultimately wants Sandra and Jerry to get a happily ever after following their roller coaster relationship. “As an actor, you want what’s more interesting,” she says. “But I know the fans would like something good. I’m willing to see what happens. I don’t know if Sandra is the kind of person who can have that kind of contentment in her personal life. But maybe. Maybe that’s the one place where she can be happy!”
