Bloodbath at the Cornucopia The female from District 7 was slain in the first Cornucopia carnage. She wore a russet brown blazer and her hair was wrapped in two braids in the arena. She was placed on the pedestal with the District 10 guy and Peeta. After giving out gifts, President Snow announced that there would be a second Cornucopia ceremony that night in order for each district to select one survivor to give out additional gifts. He also announced that if anyone could explain why they should live, then they would get immunity from future killings.
The girl from District 7 stood up on stage and said: "I'm here because I want to be. This is what I do. I survive." With these words, she took out a knife and cut her wrists, killing herself before President Snow could stop her.
This incident caused such outrage among viewers that it was decided before long there'd be no more Cornucopia ceremonies. Instead, the districts will send squads of tributes to face off against each other in battle balls. The winner will be given immunity from future killings.
So there you have it! Let's go over some facts about the Cornucopia scene:
It takes place in the Capitol Theatre.
It lasts for approximately 15 minutes.
Cato severely injures the District 8 female who carelessly set fire, but it is Peeta who kills her. Cato lends his blade to Glimmer, who subsequently assaults the girl in the film. Later, the 'Careers' run across Katniss and pursue her up a tree. When she tries to jump down, Peeta catches her instead and saves her life.
Katniss finds out that the girl died during the rescue operation. Her death will be shown in the next episode "Mockingjay".
Cato has also injured another girl named Tiller. She is being treated by Dr. Eva Braun in the Capitol's medical facility. Tiller is also dead. Dr. Braun tells Cato that the two injuries weren't fatal but they will slow down Katniss' recovery time.
Cato then goes on to say that if Katniss ever gets out of the arena alive, he will kill her. He knows that she is the only reason why they were able to catch one male figure in the district during the rebellion. With Katniss off the grid, Cato uses this opportunity to go after him. He leaves the hospital room and sees Peeta kissing Katniss in the eye. This makes Cato very angry and he cuts off Peeta's hand with his sword before killing him too.
During a fight on a Brooklyn street corner, a 52-year-old lady was shot in the head by another woman. A Brooklyn mother of two was shot dead in broad daylight on a Park Slope street Wednesday afternoon by an ex-girlfriend who approached her from behind, pulled out a revolver, and shot her in the head, according to police and witnesses. The victim was identified as Nancy Rodriguez, a mother of two children, ages 11 and 7. She lived with her husband in a home on Garfield Place near Remsen Avenue in Bensonhurst.
Police said the shooting occurred around 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of Garfield Place and Remsen Avenue, next to Bay Ridge High School. Officers arrived to find Rodriguez lying in the middle of the street with multiple gunshot wounds. She was taken to Brookdale Hospital where she was declared dead. No one else was injured in the shooting.
Investigators said they believe the killing was a case of domestic violence, and that the shooter knew Rodriguez. They said the incident began as a verbal argument between the two women on the street before it turned into a physical confrontation. During the struggle, the shooter reached into her purse and took out a gun, pointed it at Rodriguez and fired several times, hitting her in the head.
The shooter then ran away from the scene.
Rodriguez's family told NBC New York that she had a good job working for a medical supply company and was active in her community.
Diane Downs, a mother of three from Oregon, went into a hospital emergency department in 1983 with her blood-soaked children and a gunshot wound in her forearm, alleging a "bushy-haired stranger" had carjacked and shot them. As her tale unfolded, it became clear that Downs had fired the fatal shot that killed her seven-year-old daughter. 5. She had been drinking when she did it.
Downs told police that she had gone for a walk with her children after a day at the beach. While out for their stroll, a man approached and asked if they needed a ride. Upset that her son wasn't using his seat belt, Downs said she told him to drive on, but he kept following them. So she got in the backseat next to her son Michael, who was sitting on her lap. The man drove off with Downs clinging to her son's arm for support.
Later, when they stopped at a rest area to let the man out, she saw that he had a gun and decided to hide her son's body before calling for help. Police found Michael's body a few days later. He had been shot in the head.
Downs was arrested for murder and is now serving a life sentence at the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem. Her attorney tried to have her sentence reduced on grounds of insanity, but the request was denied by the court.
In the novel, she died alongside Glimmer in the tracker jacker attack. She finished 11th in the book and 13th in the film. Tara Macken, her actor, was a stunt in Catching Fire, as seen in the film's closing credits.
In the Hunger Games trilogy, Macken has a larger role in the series. She is one of the few characters who knows about the reaping - the annual competition that decides who will die. She also knows how to make weapons and use them in combat. In addition, she is talented at hunting - an essential skill to possess if you want to survive in the wilderness. Finally, she is highly motivated: not only does she want to win the game, but also the attention of Finnick Odair, a famous victor in previous games.
In the opening scene of Catching Fire, we see Macken playing guitar and singing along with other members of a rock band. This scene takes place at a party where many people have come to celebrate the end of the districting process. It shows that Macken has good leadership skills since he band wanted to celebrate even though they were still working on their stage performance. Later in the book, we find out that this is because they are going to need all the help they can get when the reaping starts.
