Although the Games have ended, Katniss still finds herself having to use strategy in order to survive.  The Capitol is watching her very closely, and she can feel them trying to control her. Even the dress  that Cinna makes for her first appearance is meant to help her look innocent in front of the Capitol.  She plays up her affection for Peeta on-stage, kissing him and snuggling up against him. A part of  her still feels as if Peeta is acting, too, because she notes how "Peeta is, as usual, playing the crowd  exactly right." She still doesn't realize that Peeta isn't acting. Haymitch, however, can tell that while  Peeta is madly in love, Katniss isn't. He needs to coach Katniss and encourage her to act  affectionately toward Peeta whenever they're in front of the cameras. He works hard to keep the two  of them separate, probably so that Katniss won't say anything to Peeta about her conflicted feelings,  which would destroy the one thing that is preventing the Capitol from killing them: their mad love for  one another.
