Katniss admits to having true feelings for Peeta in this chapter, something she hasn't  done before. Previously, she's considered how her heart is stirred by kisses she and  Peeta have shared, but she always brings these moments of affection back to how the  kisses, while sometimes emotionally charged, are meant to placate a romance-hungry  audience. She states outright, though, that the kiss she plants on Peeta's forehead is for  her  and not for the audience. She has taken control of her emotions in this instance and  acted upon them truthfully. Her gratitude for the boy beside her is not an act, and she  owns up to that. The Gamemakers continue to manipulate the tributes. At the start of the Games,  Katniss discovered how important having a water source is, so she knows when she  sees the dry streambed that the lake is where the Gamemakers want them to go.
