Discuss the effect on Katniss of what happens to Darius and Cinna. Why are the Capitol officials attacking those who have befriended her? Why is Cinna attacked just before Katniss is placed in the Arena?

I think the Capitol is definitely trying to intimidate Katniss. By making Darius an Avox and then having him nearby, they're reminding Katniss what they have the power to do. With Cinna, I think the timing is definitely supposed to throw Katniss off. If she loses focus, then she very well could get killed right at the beginning of the Games, which would definitely be beneficial to President Snow and other government officials.
