'I keep thinking that…'

'There was nothing you could do,' he repeated. 'Twenty-three years up in that mentor chair. You think I didn’t rip myself to shreds wondering what else I could have done? We don’t control it. You aren’t to blame for her, or any of the others. Snow and the Capitol did it. But you,' he reached out and tapped Peeta’s chest, 'you’re what’s left of them now. And maybe there’s finally a chance that we can change the world so nobody else has to die like that. So here’s the deal. You stay alive and I stay sober. We both keep going. Try to find a way to live.'

Chapter Summary: Madge becomes a survivor, Johanna and Haymitch are recalled from Nine and find some common ground, and Plutarch forms another plan.

At the end, a lone figure stood among the heap of dead bodies, her blond hair falling in her stunned blue eyes, golden hair now streaked with strawberry red.

The tape abruptly ended there
