Owing to a corruption scandal, the president of Catalunya, Artur Mas, has been ousted, replaced by Carles Puigdemont. The new regional head has made his mission clear from the moment he took office: hold a referendum on Catalan independence. Significant events include the terrorist attack on August 17th, the October 1st referendum, the suspension of Catalan autonomy, and the arrests of government leaders. Introducing major figures, King Felip VI, Oriol Junqueras and Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, this episode, and the entire Catalunya Barcelona series, concludes with uncertainty and hope. Barcelona is firmly positioned as an esteemed tourist hotspot, but conflict is omnipresent. The pro-independence majority in Catalonia's Parliament promises to continue fighting for statehood, while the Spanish government insists that it will never happen.
