While the status of the events in Serbia was not investigated in episode 14, news outlets such as the BBC reported that protests and riots had started on July 7, 2020 in the capital Belgrade. Amid a surge in growing coronavirus cases, the government reported decided to impose a lockdown. This move was rejected by many Serbs, particularly because many believed that President Alexander Vucic had poorly managed the pandemic. By July, cases had increased and the government decided to issue another lockdown. To oppose this decision, protests were organized in many places, the most important of which was outside the Parliament building in Belgrade.
Over the next two days, both police and paramilitary soldiers were called in to control the situation. However, this only led to further clashes. Many peaceful and violent protests took place across Serbia over the next seven days. When videos of police brutality and mass arrests hit the internet, many citizens decided that it was best to stay there. The mounting tensions also left tourists and visitors stuck in their homes and hotels. Although the situation dissipated within a week, many small protests continued until December 2020. Although the situation improved somewhat, there was what appeared to be a cloud of fear in the second half of the year.
Amira, who lives in Saumur, arrived in Serbia in July 2020, where she had to be quarantined for 14 days while filming her own scenes for the 90-day fiancé. Amira only had 18 days until her K-1 visa expired. She complained that she had difficulty sleeping because of the police sirens during the riot and said it was “really scary”. With room service unavailable, Amira claimed she was “scared to death” every time she had to get out to get food. In episode 14, Andrew was seen crying because his 90-day fiancé didn’t get on their plane. While some fans cheered Amira on to finally drop Andrew, others worried about her safety. However, Amira was shown well and was waiting for the next week’s episode in the previews at the airport. While Amira may have had a nightmare in Belgrave, Andrew is now the one who’s scared his partner won’t make it to America.
