Okay so Effie gets a bit huffy when Katniss and Peeta make jokes at Haymitch’s expense and she reminds them in a pretty prickly way that Haymitch is all they’ve got when they go in the arena so “Laugh away!” Then she hops around the vomit in her pointy shoes and leaves the room.
So what’s up with that? Was she upset because the teens appeared rude and ungrateful? If rudeness was the issue, wouldn’t she just say, “How rude!” and move on, but she seems to almost be defending Haymitch (who she just said had “a lot to learn about presentation”)…so anyway just wondering if her comment had any traces of defending Haymitch or if it was purely a reaction to Teenagers These Days!
And if she was defending Haymitch, then why?
