She knows about the berries! But…but…how?!
Complaint #28 – Katniss knowing about the berries being poison at the end was just thrown in there.
TFGeekGirl, TheFandom.Net – Katniss knowing about the berries isn’t a big deal. Besides, do we have to know how she knows about the berries? She’s a hunter, which was shown in the beginning of the movie and during her time in the arena, so she should know more than the average tribute in knowing how to survive in the woods.
Jessi, TheFandom.Net – I had no idea anyone was complaining about this. We know Katniss spends a lot of time in the woods and seems pretty well versed in all things wilderness. I didn’t think twice about this, plus it makes no difference.
Tiffany, WelcomeToDistrict12.com – It’s obvious from her hunting and how Katniss navigates herself in the arena (touching the moss and ground for water, for example) that she has outdoor survival skills. A big component of typical survival skills is knowing what’s poisonous and what’s not. It isn’t a huge leap that she would know that the berries Peeta picks are poisonous.
Tanvi, Hunger Games Network – Doesn’t change anything one bit. Not the Games, the uprising, the victors in any way.
Perri, Movies.com – Perhaps, but would you rather have had the concept thrown in your face? What makes the incident so stirring is that when Katniss remembers she still has the berries, we’re remembering with her. Sure, the film version runs through Nightlock 101 rather quickly, but it still gets the point across – they’re deadly.
