Synopsis

The Casagrande family discovers that their favorite telenovela, Adios, Ana, Adios, is on right now. As the family sits down, they try to encourage Ronnie Anne to come watch the show with them, but Ronnie Anne denies, calling the show campy. In the show, the main girl, Ana Ronalda (who bears a strong resemblance to Ronnie Anne), is kidnapped by bandits. As Ronnie Anne hangs out on the balcony with Lalo and Sergio, she discovers that they're watching the telenovela as well. When Ronnie Anne attempts to leave, she discovers that Ana Ronalda is a master at kicking butt. Seeing the tough girl Ana Ronalda is, Ronnie Anne completely changes her mind on the telenovela and ends up loving it. When the episode ends, Ronnie Anne wants to know what'll happen next.

The next day, Ronnie Anne wants to watch the next episode of Adios, Ana, Adios with her family, but they still believe that she still hates the show and escort her out of the room so her negative attitude won't bother them. This forces Ronnie Anne to look all around town for a TV to watch while being accompanied by Lalo and Sergio.

  • Ronnie Anne attempts to watch the show alongside Bobby in the mercado, but Bobby states that he would rather watch the show by himself and that he doesn't need any extra help in working in the mercado.
  • Ronnie Anne attempts to watch the show on the TV in the apartment across, but the owner put a plant in front of the window, blocking half the screen.
  • Ronnie Anne attempts to watch the show at a restaurant, but Vito, one of the customers, changes the channel to a soccer game, prompting two old ladies to go to the laundromat to watch the show, with Ronnie Anne following suit.
  • Ronnie Anne watches the show at the laundromat on the condition that she wash something, so she proceeds to wash her jacket. However, as she watches the show, another customer begins washing his shoes, causing his washing machine to rattle loudly. When Ronnie Anne complains about this, Sergio unplugs the washing machine, but this causes the manager to kick Ronnie Anne out.

Ronnie Anne decides to go to a hair salon and pays Margarita, the hair stylist, to cut her hair as slow as possible. In the episode, Ana Ronalda, needing a way to hide from the bandits that kidnapped her, decides to chop some of her hair off so she wouldn't be recognizable. This prompts Ronnie Anne to ask Margarita if she can replicate that style on her and the she agrees. When Ronnie Anne discovers that the finale is tomorrow, she asks the Margarita if she can come tomorrow to watch, but Margarita says that she has to close the salon due to being busy tomorrow.

The next day, the family is hard at work decorating the apartment for the finale. Hector says that because today's a special occasion, he decides to close the mercado for an extra hour so Bobby can watch with them. This prompts Ronnie Anne to suggest that she run the mercado instead and Hector agrees. Just when it seems like Ronnie Anne gets to watch the show without interruptions, one of the mercado's toughest customers, Maybelle, arrives. The forces Ronnie Anne to help out Maybelle with her detailed shopping list, strict instructions and carry her groceries to her place. The entire task ends up taking the entire finale's run-time, much to Ronnie Anne's dismay, but to her relief, the channel is going to re-air the finale tomorrow.

The next day, Ronnie Anne discovers that her family is continuously talking about the finale and fears for spoilers. Throughout the entire day, Ronnie Anne attempts to block out any spoilers through various means. When the time finally comes, Ronnie Anne prepares to leave, but upon opening the door, Hector is standing right there and tells her to be safe. However, when doing so, Hector ends up spoiling the ending. The rest of the family arrives and question why Ronnie Anne is upset and Ronnie Anne ultimately confesses that she loves the show and was afraid of admitting that she liked it after making such a big deal about not liking it. At that moment, the family reveals that they knew all along that Ronnie Anne loved the show and had deliberately kept it a secret. It is revealed that Hector got the information from Maybelle and that all the spoilers they were talking about earlier were false. Ronnie Anne is admittedly angry that they did something so malicious, but is happy knowing that they recorded the finale so they can watch it together.

As the family watches the finale, the episode shows Ana Ronalda fighting the villain, who is revealed to be her long lost twin sister. As the family cheers at the two characters reconciling, Ronnie Anne admits that she wants to leave to do some skateboarding, but at that moment, another telenovela is announced. This new telenovela is about a wrestling mother. Seeing the premise of this new show, Ronnie Anne decides to abandon her plans of going skateboarding so she can watch the new show.

Errors

  • Possible: When the Casagrandes begin watching Adios, Ana, Adios, it is sunset, but the windows show a sky from the afternoon, the same happens when to screen changes from in the building to out of the building to an afternoon sky although the telenovela's episodes are only 1 hour, so it should be night or the evening.
