Oh man, the hints towards what the Gamemakers will ultimately do at the end of the games... it is going to be so messed up. And it's fascinating how the attempt to take away that fairy tale is really about punishing the Capitol citizens with the Games, not so much the districts. The fans in the Capitol are the ones really getting invested in the fairy tale story, and underneath the theatrical part of it they are truly itching for those deeper emotional connections to each other.. gah. I am super excited to watch the drama at the end play out on the Capitol side. What was supposed to be a "fairy tales aren't real" type lesson has to get awkwardly brushed aside with a "haha, I mean they totally are, because the Capitol is the awesome fairy tale land, isn't it sweet? awww, kids in love, amirite?"

I think the message was supposed to be "These district animals will turn on each other, no matter how much they supposedly love each other... you were suckers for buying in." This is probably bolstered by Snow's skepticism about Katniss's motives -- he probably assumed she'd be the one to crack, which would break her as a symbol.

Of course, since she didn't break, they had to wave it off as "silly girl in love -- no threat there."
