You have your tongue cut out and work as an AVOX, enslaved in the Capitol.
1. Opening Scene - Seneca Crane to Caesar Flickerman: At first it was a punishment, but now it is what knits us all together.
5. Volumnia Gaul's repeated question to the academy students. Penultimate Scene – Corio Snow: We do it because life is an arena.
The Cornucopia Bloodbath (exact mid-point)
white text on black, origin of the Games – televised interview between Flickerman and Crane, reason for the games (join us all together), 'and what defines your personal vision of the games' – a scream, district 12, primrose waking from a nightmare she has been chosen, comforted by katniss
Katnis and Peeta, back in District 12, cheered by the crowd - Katnis sees smiling mother, sister, and Gale – Peeta reaches for her hand, after a hesitation, they raise it (as in the Tribute Parade) - Coriolanus Snow, seeing this victoriousness on his TV, walks off
Katniss ––traumatised by the HG–– almost shoots Gale while she is hunting. He walks with her as she embarks on the Victory Tour.
On the craft to District 13, just told Gale -- "there is no District 12" -- Kitniss stares up
Overblack - "Start with what you know is true." BCU of Katniss, very low fill, rocking in fetal position. "My name is Katniss Everdeen. My home is District 12". She's hiding in the corner of a cavernous duct. A torchlight, "Miss Everdeen. . . . You need to sleep. We can help you sleep . . .". She's grabbed and manhandled away.
As AC announces --today the victors, tomrrow an attack on District 2's military facility-- K walks down a corridor and stops in front of a window. K's face is partly reflected in the glass as she looks at Peeta strapped writhing to a stretcher.
Katniss' neck brace being removed
Katniss nursing her baby son (Rye), looking at Peeta playing with their toddler daughter (Willow).

How the ways Coriolanus interpets Katniss is informed by his relation with Lucy Gray.
1. Conversations with Crane in his white *rose* garden -> ... -> dropping white roses after bombing in MJ1 (K: "He's going to kill Peeta") -> Roses to cover smell of sores in his mouth (from poisoning)
1. Corio with Crane (after the girl from 12 attacks him)- Why do we have a winner? The only emotion stronger than fear is hope. A little hope is effective, A lot of hope is dangerous.
1. Corio with Crane (after the boy and girl from 12 get-it-together) – I don't like an underdog. Have you been out there, 10, 11, 12. I have. Lots of underdogs. ... And I think if you could see them, you would not root for them either.
1. Victory Ceremony – "What a lovely pin?" "It's from my district" "They must be very proud of you"
2. Corio with Katniss – What she thought of as an act love (winning) was seen by the districts as defiance (winning).
3. Poisoned his way up - (Finnick: "Poison, the perfect weapon for a SNAKE").
4. Corio: "Miss Everdeen, I thought we had agreed never to lie to each other?"
Katniss was a fighter who had to perform. Lucy was a performer who had to fight.
Katniss thinks Peeta is performing, but finds his love was real. Lucy and Corio's relationship is a maze of deceits - yet they trust each other (not love).
remember (2. Finnick) / remind her (3. Heavensbee to Coin) who the real enemy is
1. New Hope - 'Triumph of the Will' award ceremony, subverted by the sniggering gang. Hunger Games - the victory parade. Hunger Games - authoritarian victory ceremony in District 12, the play of looks among the love triangle.
2. Empire - Luke in the hospital wing of a spacecraft, between places. Catching Fire - Katniss among the stretchers and IVs of a hovercraft, between places.
Order x Anarchy - SW: Empire x Rebellion - HG: Capitol x Districts (NB. Empire, technocracy/reflective surfaces/Alphaville vs Capitol, ?).
