Saddest/Most Shocking Moments in the Hunger Games Trilogy


The Top Ten

1 When Prim dies

Prim was Katnisses motivation! it was heartbreaking to see her die after all Katniss had done to try and save her.

Prim was amazing. She was so kind and sweet and she loved Katniss so much. She didn't have to help but she did. so sad :(

I cannot watch that scene without crying

She was just trying to help, not everyone would do that, she did it out of the kindness of her heart. But sadly, she had to pay for it.

2 When Finnick dies

Really? Rue's death was not shocking she had to die for Katniss to win. Prim I don't like she is a weak poor brat. Finnick he wan the 65th hunger games, he survived the 75th hunger games and then he just died when I heard Finnick died I thought in Catching fire he died and katniss and Peeta win. Besides Finnick was a good person he saved Peeta from dying and took a knife in is calf for Peeta. Plus he just got married and his son needed him. What else ohh here it is Prim was 12 and someone volunteered for but Finnick was 14 still young and no one volunteered for and he won. Sorry Prim your weak. And also Prim had a sister and mother. But Finnick I don't see a mom or a dad. He had a mentor but died. He only had a wife who he and her had few times of happiness together

In my opinion, this was the most shocking for the sole reason that: his death came out of nowhere. One second, he was climbing out of the sewers. The next, his life flashed before Katniss's eyes. Then one second later, he was brutally killed by the mutts. I mean, seriously, Collins?!

Finnick saved Katniss’s life for risking his own, he saved Peeta’s life during the 75th Hunger Games and he just got married. Finnick did all that he could to make his country safe and for him dying it was just wrong. I would rather Finnick stay alive and Prim dies.

I love Finnick if I was given a choice I would have Prim die over Finnick.

3 When Peeta was hijacked and attacks Katniss

This has got to be my least favorite part of the whole series. Trying to kill katniss with bare hands is probably the last thing peeta would want to do. Like he would even let himself die for katniss to survive. They ruined him. The Capitol took him away and used him as a weapon against katniss. Peeta was tortured, he lost his family and he lost himself. I seriously cried when this happened, and I'm so thankful it wasn't in full detail in the book apart from "and his hands closes around my throat" and something but I forgot. Anyway, at this point I wanted to kill snow for what he did to peeta.

I literally gasped when I read this, I was so shocked.

Peeta was ruined in mockingjay I wish we got the old one back

This was so sad because in The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, he was so sweet, kind, and gentle. I feel like the capitol completely destroyed him.

4 Cinna's Death

I liked him. - 906389

5 When the bomber crashes into the hospital in district 8

We had just spent a chapter knowing and liking the residents, and then they just...died. Their were mothers and CHILDREN in that hospital, oh yeah, and it’s a HOSPITAL! They are being treated, and are so innocent, and then they die. Katniss’ speech at the end was amazingly powerful, and truly captured the tragedy.

6 When Rue dies

Katniss sang the poor child to death... She tried so hard to help Katniss. She was too young. And it was so touching, so emotional that Katniss sang her to death... Rue was just way too young... Too pretty, too small to die.

Really? I saw this and prim's death coming from a mile away, I mean she has to die in order for Katniss and peeta to win.

Don't worry she came back to life as a bird named bia

7 When Katniss shoots Coin

I called it

Because of what Snow said to her before his execution she found out that coin had ordered the attack on capital civillians and deduced that coin was being manipulative

Whore shoots Coin.

8 When Gale Is Being Whipped

i'm sad

9 Peacekeepers Shoot Elderly Man

The Peacekeepers Also Committed A Hate Crime Because The Man They Shot Was Black.
Shame On The Peacekeepers

I cried.

10 When the Jabberjays torment Katniss and Finnick

The Contenders

11 When Cinna Dies
12 Tracker Jacket Attack
13 When the Rebels Destroy the Dam While Singing "the Hanging Tree"

In my opinion, this moment was extremely moving. Seeing how Katniss rallied the rebels and how willing they were to die for the cause almost made me cry. I never cried reading the books. Not at Rue's death, not at Prim's or Cinna's, not at Finnick's, etc. But while watching the movies, I cried at all of these points and more. I felt that this scene was extremely necessary.

14 When Katniss talks about a girl who blew up in the games

If you step off of the platform before the games, you'll blow up... Which is what happened to her and they had to scrape her body parts off of the ground!

15 When Peeta announced the girl he liked came to the Hunger Games with him
16 When Clove Dies

I literally sobbed when Cato was begging her to stay with her. Clato forever!

I cried my eyes out especially when Cato was beside her begging her to stay with him

I really didn't like Clove. But Cato's reaction made it so... So sad...

Cato's reaction made me start sobbing
