As expected, there are quite a few to be found.

The video starts in a house that looks an awful lot like the Everdeen home in District 12's Seam. It's broken and old and very modest, just like Katniss' place. Oh, and there’s a fire going in the hearth -- a very fitting little tribute to welcome "the girl who was on fire," yes? Get More »

Who will be the one to have "A Heart Full of Love?"
