Okay, I know, I know.

I'm sorry.

I know it's a little tender.


Okay, let's try

your voice now.

"My name is katniss everdeen.

I'm from district 12."


Okay, take your time.

Still got a lot of swelling

in your vocal chords.


name is

katniss everdeen.

I want...

I want to talk to him.

He needs time.

But, um, we're trying

somethin' new today.

He's been calmer

with the doctors,

but they're strangers

to him.

So we're gonna

test his response

on someone

he remembers from home.

Someone he trusts.

Send her in.



How you feelin'?

She's too close.

- Mmm, it's okay.

- How'd you get here?

We live in district 13 now.

It's a real place.

Stories are true.

You were rescued.

My family hasn't come

to see me.

There was an attack on 12.


My family?

The bakery didn't survive.

It's katniss.

It's because of katniss.

Wasn't because of her.

She tell you to say that?

She didn't tell me anything.

She's a liar, prim.

It's a trick.

Peeta, what you're saying

isn't real.

She sent you here

to talk to me.

She knows you're here now.

It's okay.

She knows...

You can't trust her!

She's a monster!

She's a mutt that the capitol

created to destroy us!

Get her outta there.

Do you understand me?

You have to kill her, prim!

You have to kill her!


She's a mutt!

This is just

a conditioned response.

Kill her!

It's not him.

She's a monster!

She's a mutt!

No, it's not him.

She's a mutt!

There's not enough

manpower coming in from 4.

I don't think

that's a problem.

Please, come in.

With any kind

of manpower, if we...

Will you excuse us

for just a moment?

Of course.

Have a seat.

I'm glad you're

feeling better.

Snow has to pay

for what he's done.

I wanna help the rebels

in any way I can.

It's hard to see

peeta this way.

That's not peeta.

Send me to the capitol.

I'll do anything.

I can't.

I can't send you there.

We can't get into the capitol

until we control district 2.

Then send me to 2.

You want me to

fire up our troops?

Call out to the loyalists?

You've seen what I can do.

Yes, I have.

I saw peeta before we left.

And what did you think?

Something selfish.

That you don't have to be

jealous of him anymore.


I don't stand a chance

if he doesn't get better.

You'll never let him go.

What's goin' on

in your head?

I don't know.

That's like kissing someone

who's drunk.

Doesn't count.

Thirty minutes

until touchdown.

Prepare for landing.

Wrap it up.

Cut the chatter. Let's go.

This is another version

of booby-trapping a resource.

Right, I see.

This one's

designed to blind.

Smoke clings to the eyes.

That's an application

of the "hummingbird trap."

You scare people

so they flee in this direction

into what they think

is a safe haven.

Two-tiered explosion.

You allow people

enough time to rush in,

help the wounded, then...

A second bomb.


Second one goes off here.

I guess there are

no rules anymore about

what a person can do

to another person.

I don't think snow used

any rulebook

when he hijacked peeta.

Welcome to district 2.

I'm corporal homes.

You follow me, please.

Don't worry.

It's just how the loyalists

say "good morning."

President coin,

we're indebted to you

for the reinforcements

and the mockingjay.

But I'm not sure that

anyone outside of 2

knows what

we've been up against.

This is the nut.

The capitol's headquarters

for all offensive operations.

It's manned by both military

and civilian personnel

from district 2.

As you can see,

the fortress lies

so far beneath

the bedrock, it's untouchable.

Yesterday, we attempted

to take

the northeastern gate.

The enemy countered

from higher up

and we were forced

to pull back.

We took heavy losses.

Could we create a decoy?

Send troops towards one gate,

launch a staggered attack

on another.

Whose troops do you propose

as a decoy, commander?

We have the mockingjay.

Don't underestimate her.

We could use her

to erode support.

She may be able to sway

some of the loyalists.

You've been underground

a long time, madam coin.

This isn't like

the rest of panem.

Support for the capitol

runs deep here.

Then there is

no sacrifice too great.

We need to control the arsenal

inside that fortress.

Even with every district

in this alliance,

we are outgunned.

I won't commit my people

to a ground assault

just to pillage weapons.

Commander paylor,

your people have suffered

more than just about

anyone else

at the hands of the capitol.

Which is why I won't

condone a mass suicide.

If we don't take

district 2,

we won't get into

the capitol.

Would it be enough

to disable the fortress

instead of taking it?

What do you

have in mind?

You think of it

like a wolf den.

You're not gonna

fight your way in,

so you've got two choices.

You trap the wolves inside,

or you flush 'em out.

If we can't attack

straight on,

then couldn't we use

our hovercraft

to strike around it?

We'll use the mountains.

We'll hit weak spots

in the peaks.

We could design the bomb

targets in sequence

using seismic data.

Trigger avalanches.

Block all exits,

cut off their supplies.

You make it impossible

for them to launch

their hovercraft.

Bury them alive.

We'd forfeit any chance

to control the weapons.

Yes, but we'd face

a weakened capitol.

There's civilians in there.

They should be given

a chance to surrender.

Could use one of the supply

tunnels for the evacuees.

It's a luxury

we weren't given

when they firebombed 12.

There's gotta be

a better way.

I suggest we try

the avalanche,

but leave

the train tunnel alone.

Civilians can escape

into the square,

where our armies will be

waiting for their surrender.

We should have

every available medic

standing by.

And if they won't surrender?

Then we will need a compelling

voice to persuade them.

Red flag, this is blue leader.

Form up on Charlie tango,

1,500 meters out.

Weapons system, check.


an attack formation.

Roger that.

All bombers are outbound.

What's the difference,


Crushing the enemy in a mine

or blowin' them outta the sky

with one of beetee's arrows.

It's the same thing.

We were under attack

in district 8.

And that hovercraft

wasn't filled with civilians.

Doesn't matter.

Even if those civilians

are just moppin' floors,

they're helping the enemy.

And if they have to die,

i can live with that.

Two thousand meters out.

No one who supports

the capitol is innocent.

With that kinda thinking,

you can kill whoever you want.

You can send kids off

to the hunger games

to keep the districts in line.

Bombs away.

It's war, katniss.

Sometimes killing

isn't personal.

Figured if anyone knew that,

it was you.

I, of all people, know

that it's always personal.

Don't worry, katniss,

there'll be survivors.

Let's focus on

what it is you gotta say.

Now, plutarch wrote

a speech for you...

I'm not saying that.

Okay. Didn't think so.

Let's, uh...
