And Now for My William Tell Impersonation
- Haymitch explains the evaluation process, and leaves them with a very important tip: "make sure they remember you."
- Katniss is called, and with a brief word of encouragement from Peeta, she enters the cold room and lays her hands on her prized bow and arrows.
- The judges are distracted by their partying, and are unimpressed when Katniss fires her first arrow and misses the bull's-eye by a long shot.
- Not discouraged one bit, she grabs another arrow and lands a perfect bull's-eye. Nobody notices. They're too busy drinking.
- She grabs one more arrow and fires directly into the party through an apple in a roasted pig's mouth.
- She takes a bow, snarls "thank you for your consideration," and departs.
- It's what you might call a walk-off home run.
- Effie pitches a fit because Katniss was so cheeky. But she's missing the point. Haymitch arrives and congratulates her for the performance she gave to the judges.
- The media plays the results of the judge's scores.
- Peeta does well, but Katniss scores 11—the highest of all the Tributes: the girl really is on fire.
- Yes, sometimes things really do go up to eleven.
- President Snow meets with Seneca Crane, the Game Maker.
- Snow offers a quick lesson on despotism and political power, and warns Seneca about what he sees happening with this Katniss girl.
- Haymitch tells Katniss that Peeta's asked to train alone from now on; Katniss is visibly jarred by the news.
