On the role of Beetee (spoilers):
a former Hunger Games winner from District 3…Known for his intelligence and expertise with technology, Beetee won the Games in his year by rigging an electronic trap to kill off his competitors.

Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
