The one of the main conflicts in Catching Fire is an internal conflict, as Katniss determines whether or not she wants to be a part of the growing rebellion against The Capital. It is interesting that, for such an active character, this decision gets made for Katniss, instead of her making it for herself. At the beginning of the novel, President Snow threatens her, saying that uprisings may be coming if she doesn't fall in line and convince the people in the districts that love, not rebellion, motivated her bluff of committing suicide with the poisoned berries in The Hunger Games. At the time, Katniss says that she is "both chilled and somewhat elated by the possibility" (Chapter 2).
