"The Horror-Scope" is the eighth episode of the first season of The Casagrandes.

Plot

Ronnie Anne doesn't believe in an astrological prediction that "love will find her," until it seems to come true.

Synopsis

Ronnie Anne walks into the living room, and Rosa encourages her to come watch her favorite fortune teller on TV, Ernesto Estrella. Ronnie Anne obliges, and Ernesto believes that anyone with fire signs will find love. Rosa is excited, since she believes that Ronnie Anne will find love today. When Ronnie Anne dismisses this, she gets a call from Lincoln, who says that he's coming to city because Rita has a meeting there. Ronnie Anne expresses joy, and when she hangs up, Rosa believes that this is the first sign of Ronnie Anne finding love. Ronnie Anne, however, continues to dismiss it.

Ronnie Anne welcomes Lincoln.

Sometime later, Lincoln arrives, and the two start to spend some time together. All the while, Sergio is instructed by Rosa to spy on them to ensure that a romance breaks out between them. As they hang out, Ronnie Anne catches Sergio, and starts to realize that Lincoln is slowly starting to show signs of affection, such as revealing the egg they took care of during that school project (and comparing the project to being good parents), Lincoln asking questions about dating advice, and asking if there's a place for them to be alone. As Ronnie Anne's fears kick in, Rosa suddenly appears behind them, suggesting they go to a fancy pizza restaurant. to which Lincoln and Ronnie Anne agrees.

At the apartment building, Sid, while trying to hunt for a certain bird, is approached by Ronnie Anne to be her wingman so she can kill the vibe whenever Lincoln starts to show signs of affection. Sid agrees, but has to leave if she ever spots the bird. As the three hang out, Sid spots the bird, and has to leave. Lincoln and Ronnie Anne arrive to the restaurant and Ronnie Anne attempts to stall for time in order to prevent Lincoln asking questions, such as asking Hector and his band to perform one of his songs (which Ronnie Anne stops when she realizes it's about love) and asking a waiter all the ingredients for one of their dishes. As the waiter lists the ingredients, Lincoln excuses himself and comes back wearing a suit. Now fearing for the worst, Ronnie Anne fakes having arthritis so they can leave.

Arriving back to the apartment, Ronnie Anne's anxiety reach critical level when Lincoln suddenly presents a wedding ring on one knee. All of a sudden, it turns out that Lincoln was actually preparing himself for a magic trick involving interlocking wedding rings. This revelation throws Ronnie Anne completely off.

"I'm really glad that we've stayed friends."

Sometime later, Lincoln is ready to leave, and explains that the questions about romance he was asking earlier were actually for Rusty, and not about himself. Before Ronnie Anne spills the beans that she assumed that Lincoln loved her, Rita arrives, and Lincoln leaves.

Back in the apartment. Ronnie Anne states that Ernesto's fortune wasn't true to Rosa, when suddenly, she catches the bird Sid was looking for, which Sid says is a lovebird. This causes Rosa to point out that Ronnie Anne's fortune did come true, which Ronnie Anne agrees with semi-realization, and Ernesto to reiterate that his fortunes never lie.

Trivia

  • Lincoln is revealed to still be in possession of Toby Rochelle II, the egg he and Ronnie Anne took care of in "Shell Shock."
  • The premise of this episode is similar to The Loud House episode "Raw Deal," as both episodes involve the main character being afraid of a fortune they were told coming true.
  • Ronnie Anne is revealed to be a fire sign, which means she's either an Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
  • According to Sid, Stanley and Becca's first date was in a pizza restaurant.

  • This is the first Casagrandes episode where Lincoln appears.

A little note re today's astrology themed Casagrandes episode... Today's Casagrandes "Horror-Scope" episode was so funny, and I was so excited that we were going to debut a new character, TV Astrologer Ernesto Estrella. But somehow the cosmos aligned, and since we at The Casagrandes are not prophetic astrologers, we had no idea that our playful homage to Walter would debut exactly a week after his passing. Animation takes a very long time to create, so it is just an amazing coincidence.
So many of us on the crew grew up watching Walter with our parents and grandparents on television, so it feels like a piece of our childhood is gone. Miguel Puga (Supervising Director) & I introduced this Latino icon to The Casagrandes writer’s room almost a year ago, thinking it would be great to have a TV astrologer character for Abuela Rosa to follow. From there, the new character was created.
The Casagrandes’ team has nothing but respect for the touchstone that Walter Mercado has become in Latin America and in the US. He was a pioneer in the Latino community in more ways than one. We have nothing but love for Walter Mercado. May he rest in the stars, and as Walter would say, “Con mucho mucho amor.”

—Lalo Alcaraz, Twitter[1]
  • Walter Mercado - According to Lalo Alcaraz, the character of Ernesto Estrella is based on this late astrologer in terms of appearance and occupation.
  • Lady and the Tramp - Big Tony and Little Sal eating the spaghetti seems like a homage to a scene from this film.
  • Looney Tunes - The gag of Sergio's beak falling off throughout this episode is a possible reference to Daffy Duck's beak ending up in a comedic position whenever Elmer Fudd shoots him with a gun in the "hunting trilogy" cartoons produced from 1951-1953.

Errors

Sid's missing boot laces

  • When Sergio gets his beak slammed in the window, his bandages disappear from his beak.
  • When Sid is looking at a pink feather, her boot laces were missing.
