Primrose Everdeen | The Hunger Games Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Last week's Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 trailer made one thing clear: the relationship between Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Prim is Katniss's twelve-year-old sister, of whom she is fiercely protective. As Katniss says, "I protect Prim in every way I can, but I'm powerless against the. Katniss and her loneliness Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games tells the story of a competition Meanwhile, her relationship with Primrose is very maternal.
The next day, Cinna tells her just to be honest, which makes her even more memorable. Peeta also helps, admitting that his love was Katniss. During the Games, Katniss forms an alliance with Rue after Rue helps Katniss escape the Careers with a tracker jacker nest, getting her a bow in the process. After healing Katniss' wounds from the tracker jacker poison, Rue is killed by Marvel, the male tribute from District 1. Later, the rules are changed so that if the remaining two tributes come from the same district, they will both become victors.
Katniss hurries to find Peeta, who is seriously injured from saving Katniss from Cato, the District 2 male, and they resume their "star-crossed lovers" reputation, gaining sympathy from sponsors.
While Katniss tries to keep up the ruse she begins to wonder if she does feel something for him; having always focused on surviving, she never considered romance, as the closest person to her was Gale. They outlast the other tributes after Katniss attends the feast to get medicine for Peeta, where she heals him, and the rule change is revoked, meaning there can only be one victor of the Hunger Games.
Assuming the Gamemakers would rather have two victors than none, she suggests that they both pretend to commit suicide by eating poisonous nightlock berries. The ploy works and Katniss and Peeta are both declared victors of the 74th Hunger Games.

However, she is warned by Haymitch that her actions in the Games may come back to haunt her, while also realizing Peeta's feelings for her are genuine. Catching Fire Katniss and Peeta go on the Victory Tour, which is a visit to each district by the winners, strategically placed between each Hunger Games.
Katniss becomes aware that uprisings are erupting. In addition, the nation's leader, President Snow, is making Katniss convince the nation that she is really in love with Peeta and that her suicide pact was an act of love rather than defiance, in order to quell dissent. Gale has been presented to the nation as her cousin, but President Snow implies his knowledge that Katniss has feelings for him and threatens to have him killed to gain leverage.
In order to save her family and friends, Katniss agrees to follow the Capitol's agenda. Peeta does the same when he realizes what is at stake. Peeta even proposes marriage to her, and she accepts, but even at that point President Snow conveys to her that her actions are insufficient. Katniss comes to realize that the rebellion in the districts is not within her power to suppress, making it impossible for her to satisfy President Snow's demands.
Katniss is also confused as to the nature of her feelings for both Gale and Peeta, both of which are complicated by her fears for the future and her unwillingness to have children who themselves could be subjected to the Hunger Games. When the Quarter Quell—a special Hunger Games that takes place every 25 years and has a special set of rules—is announced, it is proclaimed that all of the current year's tributes will be selected from the pool of previous Hunger Games victors.
District 12 has only three living victors: Katniss, Peeta, and Haymitch, who won the 50th Games and successfully mentored Katniss the year before.
As Katniss is the only living female victor in District 12, she is the only possible female tribute, and Peeta volunteers to take Haymitch's place when Haymitch is selected. Katniss and Peeta return to the arena, working closely to survive and forming alliances and close friendships in the process, particularly with Finnick Odairwho resuscitated Peeta in the arena. During this time Katniss begins to realize she has feelings for Peeta.Mockingjay Part 2: "Prim's Death" Scene [HD]
Katniss is taken from the arena and discovers that the tributes of many districts, including her allies Finnick and Johanna Masonhad coordinated an escape plan and used a stolen hovercraft to fly to District 13, which was not destroyed as the Capitol had claimed.
However, during the escape, Peeta is captured by the Capitol and afterward, Gale informs Katniss that District 12 was bombed and destroyed but that her family is safe. Mockingjay In Mockingjay, Katniss is rescued and taken to the subterranean civilization of District 13 and meets with the people and their leader, President Alma Coin.
She is then taken to see the remains of District She agrees to be the Mocking Jay, symbol of the rebellion. A love triangle between Katniss, Peeta, and Gale slowly unfolds, forcing Katniss to decide whom she really wants to be with—a situation complicated by the fact that Peeta is currently being tortured in the Capitol while Gale is at Katniss's side.
Katniss also forms a bond of friendship with Finnick, who goes through the same pain she is going through and is able to understand her situation. Katniss agrees to be the symbolic leader of their rebellion: She discovers that Cinna has been killed by the Capitol, but the rest of her prep team survived in District 13's captivity; they prep Katniss for the cameras when she agrees to start doing propaganda pieces for the rebels. After a rescue mission in which a team from District 13 brings Peeta back, she finds out his memories have been distorted by tracker jacker venom, a mind-control torturing method referred to as "hijacking".
He now hates and wants to kill Katniss, believing she is a muttation created by the Capitol. Katniss becomes even more determined to kill Snow after this. She, along with a group of sharpshooters that include Gale, Finnick, and later joined by Peeta much to Katniss's dismay sneak into the Capitol at the cost of several of their own lives in an attempt to kill Snow. Along the way, they encounter sadistic traps created by game makers to make sport of their deaths, and on one occasion, Finnick and Katniss fight off muttations, who start decapitating Finnick, leading Katniss to explode the Holo to allow her friend a quick death.
As the remaining team get close to the presidential mansion, an array of bombs are dropped from a Hovercraft, with only some exploding, killing the refugee Capitol children on whom they were dropped. Rebel medics, including Prim, rush to help the children, but as they arrive the rest of the bombs explode. Prim is killed in front of Katniss, while Katniss's body is severely burned. Although she makes a remarkable physical recovery, Katniss temporarily loses the ability to speak, traumatized by the death of her sister.
It is possible that Gale was involved in the making of the bombs that killed Prim, although he denies knowing that civilians would be attacked. Meanwhile, President Snow is arrested, found guilty of his crimes against the people of Panem, and sentenced to death. Per Katniss' request, she is designated as his executioner. Before the execution, Snow tells Katniss that the bombs weren't his but the rebels' way of gaining sympathy in the Capitol for their cause, making it look like the work of Snow.
Although she initially refuses to believe Snow, Katniss realizes that the attack method was identical to a trap Gale and fellow Quarter Quell tribute Beetee had designed. Eventually, Katniss realizes that someone high up in the ranks of the Rebels would have had to order to have Prim on the front line, despite her age, and comes to suspect that Coin ordered the attack on the children in order to trick the Capitol citizens into thinking that the government had killed their children, therefore winning the loyalty of the Capitol's citizens and that Prim was there solely to subdue and unhinge Katniss.
Furthermore, Coin suggests that there will be one last Hunger Games where the children from the Capitol will be reaped. She seeks the approval of the surviving victors before making these games official, and Katniss votes yes as a means of gaining Coin's trust. During the supposed execution of Snow, she instead shoots Coin, due to her being responsible for Prim's death.
She then attempts to kill herself with the suicide pill attached to her uniform, but Peeta stops her. She is then arrested and placed in solitary confinement, where she attempts to commit suicide by starving herself and overdosing. However, she is ultimately released on the grounds that she wasn't mentally well at the time of the assassination and is sent back to District Katniss, accompanied by Haymitch, goes back to her home in Victor's Village and is put under care.
Driven into a deep depression, Katniss refuses to leave her house until Peeta who by then has largely recovered from his brainwashing returns to District 12 to plant primroses outside, in memory of her sister. Katniss begins to regain her mental health, and she and Peeta deal with their feelings by creating a book composed of information about deceased tributes, friends, and family eventually Haymitch joins them in this project.
Katniss's mother, who chose not to return to District 12 because of all the painful memories of her deceased husband and daughter, decides to work in District 4 as medical personnel. Gale got a "fancy job" in District 2 and is seen regularly on television. Annie, Finnick's wife, has their son. A few hundred District 12 survivors return home and rebuild it, where they no longer mine coal, producing food and manufacturing medicine instead.
The novel ends with Katniss admitting that she does indeed love Peeta. Epilogue[ edit ] In the epilogue, Katniss and Peeta are married and have two children. Their first child, a boy, has Katniss' gray eyes and Peeta's blond curls; their second child, a girl, has Katniss' dark hair and Peeta's blue eyes. Katniss still wakes up screaming in the night and is worried about telling her children about the nightmares involving their parents' contribution in the Games and the rebellion.
She finds no pleasure in life at times because she knows it could all be taken away at once. To soothe her traumatized psyche, Katniss makes lists in her mind of every act of kindness she has ever seen, an obsession that she realizes is simply a "repetitive game" to keep darker thoughts at bay. In the series' last words, Katniss offers one final observation: Panem is run by an all-powerful city called the Capitollocated in the Rocky Mountainswhich is surrounded by 12 districts, each having a specific purpose in supplying something to the Capitol.
The story starts in District 12Katniss's home, the coal-mining district. District 12, in the Appalachian Mountainsis the poorest of the districts, and Katniss lives with her mother and sister in the poorest part of town, known as the Seam.
Katniss's father, a coal miner, was killed in a mine explosion when Katniss was After his death, Katniss's mother went into a deep depression and was unable to take care of her children. On the brink of starvation a few weeks before her twelfth birthday Katniss wandered into the richer part of town, hoping to steal some scraps from the garbage bins of rich merchants.
The baker's son, Peeta, whom she did not know, took a beating from his mother for intentionally burning two loaves of bread, knowing that he would be told to throw them out. He was told to give the two loaves of bread to the pig, but instead gave them to Katniss. Katniss took them home to her family, who had not eaten in days.
The bread gave them hope and kept them motivated, leaving Katniss feeling resentfully indebted to Peeta. A few days after the incident with the bread, Katniss decided to go into the woods surrounding her district to hunt illegally and gather plants to eat, which was how her father had gotten most of the family's food before he died.
See results The Relationship with Her Mother In the case of Katniss's relationship with her mother, it is illustrated differently in the movie than it is in the books.
However, if you are a reader and not just a movie-goerit is clear that Katniss has not and may never forgiven her mother for abandoning her and Prim when their father died in the mines. This is a significant point which underscores Katniss's ability to hold a grudge.
The question is, did her mother deserve her hatred? Throughout the books Mrs. Everdeen gradually improves, but Katniss's feelings for her quite apparently do not. Everdeen's fault that Prim nearly starved and Katniss has never forgiven her mother for nearly taking her sister away from her -- or putting herself in a position to nearly die of starvation in the district when her mother could have been working. Gale avoids watching the Games, as he promised Katniss he'd do, in order to put a wrench into the Capitol's works.
Source Do you believe that Katniss loved Gale all along? I believe that she was in denial of her affection for him. Yes, I believe that she was lying about her affection for him. No, I think she fell in love with him while "faking" it in the arena with Peeta.
No, I think she fell in love with him during Catching Fire, when she saw him whipped and tended him afterward. No, I believe her true love was always for Peeta. See results The Relationship with Gale Of all of the relationships throughout The Hunger Games trilogy, Katniss's relationship with Gale is the most complex and, at times, confusing.
From the earliest part of their relationship, the two of them have relied on one another and one another's skills in order to survive and to support the survival of their individual families. Katniss has great skill with a bow, taught to her by her father, and Gale is an excellent trapper.
Together they can bring down almost any game in the woods that surround District Twelve. Aware of Gale's large family, Katniss provides for his family while he provides for the Everdeens what Katniss herself cannot kill. Early on in the first novel, Katniss says that her relationship with Gale is platonic and that she can't think of him romantically because of the fact that they rely on one another in the woods and as friends.
This is where the complexity in their relationship becomes profound, if not astonishing. Bear in mind that when reading the books, we only have Katniss's perspective on the events of the story. In the movie, we get to glimpse Gale's affection for Katniss in a different way. Throughout the story of Catching Fire and later in Mockingjay, it becomes apparent that Gale has feelings for Katniss, and that she may return those feelings for him. In many ways this is a sudden turn around from platonic, friendly affection to romance, the love triangle that has become so popular in teen novels in the twenty-first century.
Peeta talks to Katniss before the Hunger Games begin. To attempt to explain their relationship in a few words seems foolhardy, but it's required in order to establish who Katniss is.

Consider this a breakdown, and look for future hubs on the subject of Katniss and Peeta's relationship with one another. So consider this a summary of Katniss's relationship with Peeta. According to Peeta's explanation of their meeting during what is widely known as the Cave Scene among fansthe pair met when they were five years old on the first day of school. Though Katniss failed to notice Peeta, he noticed her, her dress, and her pigtails. Later his father told him that he had once been in love with Katniss's mother, but that she had chosen Katniss's father for his beautiful singing voice.
Katniss didn't notice Peeta at the time. She would only come to recognize him years later, when she was starving and digging through the garbage behind the Mellark Bakery.
His mother tried to run her off, and she and Prim would have starved if Peeta hadn't dropped some loaves into the fire, then tossed the ruined bread to Katniss to take home to Prim. Later, when Katniss saw a dandelion in a field, she associated the flower with hope and hope with Peeta.
He was, ever after, The Boy with the Bread. He had saved her life. So when Peeta's name was called out at the Reaping, his was only the third most dreaded name Katniss could have heard the first being Prim's and the second being Gale's.
She knew that in order to survive and return from the Arena, she was going to have to kill him, or see him be killed. Peeta manipulates Katniss throughout the series. He's not the angel he's portrayed as! Katniss manipulates Peeta using his love for her as a tool. I'm just not sure. It could go either way really. I really don't care one way or the other. I just like the story!
See results Throughout the 74th annual Hunger Games, Katniss pretends that she is in love with Peeta in order to please the sponsors, but she immediately reveals the truth upon their return from the Arena. Peeta is, for obvious reasons, devastated, but he remains determined to convince her to love him, in spite of her rejection.
Perhaps because of her rejection, the Capitol doesn't have a hard time convincing Peeta that Katniss never loved him and was, in fact, his enemy. In the end, it's Katniss who must convince Peeta of their love for one another. It takes the events of Mockingjay for Katniss to begin to come to terms with her feelings for Peeta and to be able to tell him that she loves him.
The question is, does she, in fact, love him in the end, or is this just another form of manipulation used by Peeta to make her think that she does? Some people believe that Peeta manipulates Katniss throughout the series, and others believe that it's Katniss who manipulates Peeta.
Weigh on to the right! Haymitch's heavy drinking may have something to do with Katniss's lack of trust in her mentor, but his obvious appreciation of Peeta also stands in the way of their relationship. During the training period in the Capitol, it's obvious that Haymitch is conspiring with Peeta without discussing their plans with Katniss. While this may be standard for the training before the Games, Haymitch is also one of the ones who encouraged Katniss and Peeta to stick together.
