After the opening ceremonies, Katniss and Gale decided to try to make some new allies for the Hunger Games. During training, they friended Finnick, Wiress, Beetee, and Mags. After training, they have to show their skills to the Gmemakers. When it was Katniss's turn, she caught the Gamemaker's faces by writing SENECA CRANE on a training dummy.
Before the Hunger Games was about to start, a few Peacemakers beat ups Cinna and drags him away. After that, the Hunger Games started, and people started running towards the center.
Katniss and her allies runs away from the center, and makes a campsite. Later on, a wall of fog appears, and ends Meg's life.
Everyone else escapes the fog, but then monkeys started attacking the group. The fog however, made everyone itchy, and Haymitch had to send them a tube that can stop the itching. Later, Beetee told the group about the plan he taught of, and everyone agreed with the plan.
The plan didn't go as expected, but Katniss was able to create an explosion by letting the lightning strike hit the tree with the thin thread.
After the explosion, Katniss wakes up inside a hovercraft, and finds Haymitch and Finnick. She learns that Peeta was taken by the capital, and later, Gale tells her that there isn't a district 12 anymore.
