  • Katniss pulls out the poisoned berries. She and Peeta make a suicide pact onscreen for all to see.

  • Just before they eat the berries, the voice stops them: they'll be allowed to share the victory after all.

  • Seneca's led into a room with a bowl of poison berries and no exit.

  • Katniss is coached on the politics of life as a victor, and she and Peeta perform the star-crossed-lovers routine to help calm down the authorities.
  • President Snow gives Katniss her victory crown.
  • Peeta and Katniss ride the train home, while Snow plots from the shadows.
