Chapter 19
Summary

Boggs also feels angry that Coin sent Peeta out to join their squad. Katniss asks him if he thinks Coin is out to get her, in which he reluctantly says yes. Katniss asks him why he thinks so, and he admits that it’s because Coin thinks Katniss is more of a hindrance instead of an asset to their cause now because of her influence over the people. She sneaks Boggs’ Holo away. The group is now dividing themselves into sections so they can actively guard Peeta. Katniss gets annoyed that she still hasn’t been assigned by Jackson, the woman in charge of doing so. She demands to be added and the group caves in and lets her do it.

Gale tells Katniss that he wants to join her if ever she plans on going out on her own. Katniss checks in on Haymitch and he reprimands her for not being nicer to Peeta. He tells her that if the roles would be reversed, Peeta would be nice to Katniss. Soon, it was her turn to watch over Peeta. Peeta is awake and now they have a chance to talk with each other. He admits that there are still some things that he doesn’t understand. Finnick speaks up and tells him that he should just ask questions.

The next morning, Katniss and the others are back to doing stuff for filming, while Jackson and the rest continue on helping Peeta remember. Another day passes and they receive word that they’ll be going out into the streets of the Capitol to do more scenes for filming. There will be danger, but not too much. While they were donning their protective armor and gear, Peeta tells Katniss about how Darius and Lavinia, two people that Katniss knows, where tortured to death. Katniss notices that Gale is now more bent on seeking revenge than ever. Their team moves into the city to start filming and are aware that they’re required to activate two pods in order to continue on. Gale sets off the first one and everybody is relieved. Boggs calls everyone back and accidentally sets off one of the bombs, hitting him directly on the legs.

Analysis

Coin wants Peeta to distract Katniss so much that she ends up dead. Coin no longer has a use for Katniss, as she sees the young girl as a threat to her plans of dominating the whole of Panem.
