Quote from the movie:
Selene: Why are you helping me?
Erika: I'm not. I'm helping me.

I read the last sentence by Erica as saying "by preventing you from becoming his queen", so I think Underworld matching all tests is dubious.

Your reading of the last sentence is correct. I, however, feel that Underworld does not pass the test. Erica ruins it every time.
