What saddens me is that they want a fairytale middle. Katniss must become Supergirl and fight both District 13 AND the Capitol, and because it's the right thing to do, she'll win and win and win!! She's THE GIRL ON FIRE!!!
Sad, because that's exactly the sort of theatrical BS the Capitol and District 13 are mainlining. The powerful people know that symbols are just symbols, and Coin is ready to kill Katniss when a dead martyr is useful. Sock!! Pow!! and so forth are lots of fun, but they don't win wars. Wars are not won by Homeric heroes posing for each other; they are won with a price of sweat, hunger, blood and life. If we don't tell our children BEFORE we send them to the battlefield, we are no better than the Capitol.
