By the end of “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” Katniss Everdeen has gone through some major changes, both emotionally and physically.
At the end of “Catching Fire,” Katniss and Peeta are the only two remaining tributes in the arena. As they slowly make their way to the Cornucopia, where all supplies are kept, they become aware that if only one of them survives, neither will be allowed to go home. In an act of love and self-preservation, Katniss and Peeta agree to eat poisonous berries together so that neither can live without the other.
Meanwhile, in response to their actions in the arena, President Snow is furious with Katniss for inspiring hope among citizens living in Districts 1-12. This leads to a revolution as citizens begin to revolt against his rule. To quell this uprising, Snow announces a new rule stating that two victors may be crowned if both come from District 12. This means that even though they didn’t win by themselves, Katniss and Peeta have won together as a team.
In the epilogue scene set years after “Catching Fire” ends, we learn that Katniss eventually married Peeta and had two children with him: Primrose Everdeen and her younger brother who has yet to be named.
All in all, while there is much more left unsaid at the end of “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” we get just enough information to satisfy our curiosity while leaving us wanting more! We know what happened in The Arena; we know what happened back at The Capitol; but most importantly—we know how it all ended for our beloved heroine Katniss Everdeen…and it was beautiful!
