When the stars of ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ hit up ‘Good Morning America’ on Nov. 13, they premiered a new clip from the movie that laser focuses on the love triangle between Peeta, Katniss and Gale. Click to WATCH!
Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) may be facing dire obstacles as she tries to save the world from ruin, but she’s having to deal with personal complications as well. Katniss is torn between Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and we see that first-hand in a new clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1! Peeta makes a heartfelt plea to District 13, which has Katniss in tears, but Gale isn’t so moved by his speech.

“Please urge them to stop this war before it’s too late,” a teary-eyed Peeta says in the clip.
Katniss, still in shock that Peeta is actually alive, is more worried than ever about Peeta’s emotional state.
“We need to respond,” Gale coldly says. Needless to say, Katniss is shocked and not happy about his response.
“I would never say what he just said,” Gale says. “Not if they tortured me. Not with a gun to my head.”
Gale thinks the Peeta that Katniss knows and loves is long gone. He’s only “defending himself” at this point.
While we understand Katniss’ point of view, we also empathize with Gale’s. The entire situation is grim and Gale has never been one to back down from a fight, even if it nearly cost him his life. (Remember the whipping post scene in Catching Fire? #NeverForget.)
The love triangle between Gale, Katniss and Peeta is more prevalent than ever in Mockingjay and we can’t wait to see how it all unfolds. (For those who’ve read the books, don’t spoil it in the comments!)
