The shield - ouch. Haymitch gets someone he can work with, gets so many things right, and then -- out of the arena or in it, one slip, one misunderstanding can mean catastrophe. I'm not surprised he felt what he did afterwards, that would have hurt so much more than simply losing his tributes at the Cornucopia. Great stuff (as always).

Letting yourself almost hope for something is always going to make the hurt worse. But he had a chance, a real one, and Haymitch completely blames himself, though I think in this case that Effie's closer to the truth: Nasseh got cocky, and that's what killed him.
