Coin: So, an alternative has been placed on the table. Since my colleagues and I can come to no consensus, it has been agreed that we will let the victors decide. A majority of four will approve the plan. No one may abstain from the vote. What has been proposed is that in lieu of eliminating the entire Capitol population, we have a final, symbolic Hunger Games, using children directly related to those who held the most power.
Peeta: Are you joking?
Haymitch: Was this Plutarch’s idea?
Coin: It was mine. It seemed to balance the need for vengeance with the least loss of life. You may cast your votes.
Peeta: No! I vote no, of course! We can’t have another Hunger Games!
Johanna: Why not? It seems very fair to me. Snow even has a granddaughter. I vote yes.
Enobaria: So do I. Let them have a taste of their own medicine.
Peeta: This is why we rebelled! Remember? Annie?
Annie: I vote no with Peeta. So would Finnick if he were here.
Johanna: But he isn’t, because Snow’s mutss killed him.
Betee: No. It would set a bad precendent. We have to stop viewing one another as enemies. At this point, unity is essential for our survival. No.
Katniss: I vote yes…for Prim.
