This chapter

1) Of all the THG characters, only Plutarch is conceited enough to think that he and his could "contain" the Bubonic Plague.

2) The Gamemakers royally effed up. Not only do the Gamemakers now run the risk of a Bubonic Plague epidemic in Panem, but more important for the Games, the Gamemakers ruined the drama. The Careers will soon be the weakest tributes alive, not the strongest. Not to mention, tributes dying by noncombatant means is BORING.

Re: This chapter

I'm sure the engineers of the plague were fed-up with how easily the Black Death could be cured by regular antibiotics, and fixed that flaw.

Only the Gamemakers would be so idiotically confident in their abilities that they wouldn't bother to prepare, /just in case/ they missed a spot. Antibiotics should have been hidden in the cargo manifesto from the beginning!

Re: This chapter

Even Plutarch may not be as arrogant as the rest... at least he 'fessed up to the mentors in question. But yes. The arrogance of assuming they controlled plague by making a couple of tests is breathtaking.
