A character you wish had died.
Not at first! But by Mockingjay, I was fully committed to the idea that Gale should totally step on one of the Capitol’s traps. To quote myself from one of the previous days:
…okay, no, it’s more complicated than that. THG!Gale was like…he was perfect for Katniss. [He was, uh, AWESOME. Why couldn’t they have kept that whole awesome best friends/almost family type of relationship? WHY, COLLINS. WHY CAN’T KATNISS HAVE ANY MALE FRIENDS EXCEPT HAYMITCH WHO DON’T END UP DEAD.] And then CF!Gale is kind of like… He’s almost like this completely different person and I know it’s because he’s had to endure a)being relegated to pretending that he’s Katniss’s cousin and b)watching the girl he apparently loves smooch on/be in love with some other dude ON NATIONAL TELEVISION. But he didn’t have to turn into such a dick, okay? Seriously. By Mockingjay he’s all swept up in the revolution and swaying from “concerned BFF that we all know and love from THG” to “total revolutionary dick” to “waaaah Katniss why don’t you love me waaaah you only love me when I’m crying baaaaawwww.” No. Fuck that noise. By Mockingjay I was totally and wholly ready for him to step on a trap and I would’ve hurled the book across the room if Katniss wound up with him because seriously fuck the guy that he becomes. Fuck him so hard.
So yeah. Gale.
