Category Object cannot get Items

I'm trying to parse all items in a category.

From the REST API, I pull a category, then:

List<Item> categoryItems = lastSelectedCategory.getItems();

But I get an error on the editor:

Incompatible types:

Required com.clover.sdk.v3.Inventory.Item

Found com.clover.sdk.v3.base.Reference

I've done this with other objects, I'm only having this issue with the items from a category object.

In other words, why is Item item = lastSelectedCategory.getItems().get(i); returning a Reference instead of an item?

That means the element isn't expanded. You are getting item IDs not Items. You'll need to fetch each Item object by ID.

This error is happening while editing code, not on run time, running the query appending ?expand=items will get me my items without having to fetch each of them.
