Who wants to see the scene where Peeta discusses some of his confusing memories and plays “Real or not real?” with Katniss? OH, THAT’S RIGHT, EVERYONE DOES!
We had to suffer a bit to get it in high quality though. First they debuted it during the weekend’s fan event, where you could watch a low quality phone recording of the scene online. Then Lionsgate gave the clip as an exclusive to TEENS REACT where we could only watch it with silly commentary and squealing interrupting the mood.
But today, finally we get the scene on its own, in all its quiet, beautiful glory.
Do we love this clip? Did it break our hearts? Did it make us feel really good about how Josh handled the tricky arc of “hijacked Peeta in recovery?” Yes, yes, and yes.
Hello gravely voiced Peeta, we can feel your pain and your exhaustion. Bravo, Josh. And the suffering in his face (and Katniss’s) is so painful to watch in the most appropriate way. Then you get to hear the ultra-beloved “Real or not real” uttered from Peeta. They change Katniss’s line slightly from “we protect each other” to “we keep each other alive” but that’s no biggie. It’s good. This is the good stuff here, guys. And it’s sweet.
We’d make a “but it felt like we had to go through torture to get it” joke about this clip, but we can’t joke about hijacked Peeta. Nope, can’t do it.
We’re too busy hurting at the moment.
