Why Does No One Remember Lucy Gray Baird In ‘The Hunger Games’ Trilogy?
Warning: This article contains spoilers for The Hunger Games: Ballad of the Beasts and the Snakes.
A prequel to The Hunger Games trilogy, The Hunger Games: Ballad of the Beasts and the Snakes it gives fans a glimpse behind the curtain at the corrupt leader President Snow, back in his early years before he was fighting the rebellion started by Katniss. Set 64 years before the events of the Irish Language League The Hunger Gamesthe Coriolenus Snow (Tom Blyth) we see is just a teenage boy trying to graduate from school and restore honor to his family name.
But ironically, a different female tribute from District 12, Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler) is to change his trajectory and turn him to the dark side. Although Lucy Gray seems to be just a big part of Snow’s life, her own story should be told in history books, and she should be seen as an icon in her home in District 12. So why isn’t Katniss, Peeta, and no one. else she remembers 64 years later? Be careful, as the following article discusses major plot spoilers for The Hunger Games: Ballad of the Beasts and the Snakes going forward.
I The Hunger Games, we learn from Katniss that the history of the games is discussed at school and that many of the winners are seen as significant historical figures. In addition, the living winners from each district live in a special neighborhood called Victory Row, but in the case of District 12, this only includes Haymitch Abernathy until Katniss and Peeta win the 74th Hunger Games. But Ballad of the Canons and the Snakes revealing that Lucy Gray Baird is the Winner of the 10th Hunger Games, meaning she is District 12 actually first Victor.
The film adaptation Ballad of the Canons and the Snakes she doesn’t really reveal why nobody remembers Lucy Gray, but that she disappeared after she left the cabin she and Snow had taken refuge in. she reveals that she destroyed all evidence of the 10th Hunger Games — rather than keeping a copy for herself. Her reasoning was that all the issues with that particular edition of the Games made Capital look weak, and she wanted people to forget about it.
So, no one remembers who won the 10th annual Hunger Games — no one, that is, except those who were alive when it happened. But a Reaping age child during that time period would be in the late 70’s/early 80’s by the time Katniss enters the Arena, if they are even still alive. Furthermore, although it was the first Hunger Games to be televised, it was not considered compulsory viewing, and it is understood that many of the citizens of the Districts were too poor to own televisions to watch it. .
So even those who could remember the Games he probably didn’t see, and with no written record of the Games, you probably forgot about Lucy Gray. However, Lucy Gray’s legacy was not fully die with her. Towards the end of the Ballad of the Canons and the Snakes, we hear her writing a song after seeing an evil hanging in the town square. The haunting tune “The Hanging Tree,” apparently was written by Lucy Gray Baird.
When Katniss sings the song i Mockingjay, she notes that it was a folk song that her father taught her when she was younger, but her mother forbade her to sing it because of its dark meaning. She may have no memory of Lucy Gray Baird, but by turning that song into a song of rebellion, it reopened a wound in Snow’s heart that she didn’t even know existed.
