Quote #10

What's irrefutable is that she's done exactly what he said. Let the Capitol and the districts run one another into the ground and then sauntered in to take power. Even if that was her plan, it doesn't mean she dropped those parachutes. Victory was already in her grasp. Everything was in her grasp.

Except me. (26.4-5)

Coin's power is stronger than either truth Katniss is facing. No matter what chain of events unfolded, Coin is the one who benefited: the one who rose to the top. Coin is the only one who's come out ahead in this war. And whether the rebels or the Capitol masterminded this last unforgivable act, it still worked to Coin's advantage.
