As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts by the Capitol, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance.

Welcome to the second spoiler discussion on Geekie Chic! Today we're going to discuss Mockingjay Part 2, starting with my favourite and not-so-favourite scenes, why I'm mad at the Indian Censor board, what I thought of the surprising kiss towards the end, to what I think about the bomb fiasco.

Please proceed only if you have seen the movie, read the books, or done both. Hopefully, it's both.

As she begins doing the things she's always been afraid to do - including pursuing her secret crush, she discovers that life doesn't always go according to plan. Sometimes friendships fall apart and love breaks your heart. But once in a while, the right person shows up just when you need them most - and you learn that you're stronger and braver than you ever imagined.
