1. It's the moment for Hunger Games fans to unite! But for the last time...

Mockingjay Part 2 is finally out this weekend and my excitement cannot possibly be contained! I just binge-watched all of the Hunger Games movies and I've already bought my ticket to ensure I will see the epic finale on opening night. Now I can't wait for incredible climax of the Hunger Games trilogy that'll leave fans cheering for Katniss and the Districts.

2. Mockingjay Part 2 will finally answer the cliffhanger from Part 1!

In Part 1 Katniss discovered that District 13 had not been destroyed: Everyone has been living in underground bunkers, ready for their Mockingjay to lead them into battle. Peeta was captured by the Capitol and brainwashed into trying to kill Katniss.

Oh yeah, that.

So is Peeta going to snap out of it, or what? That last scene where Katniss was almost choked to death left us all holding our own breath.

3. It's the end of a long, emotional journey

This will be the final battle between the Rebellion and the Capitol. We were there as our Mockingjay began the story with her devotion to her family. We've watched our beloved characters develop throughout the series, and now we'll witness it all come full-circle in a world-changing last stand.

Mockingjay Part 2 is the denouement of the roller coaster that has been the whole of the Hunger Games series. Fans know that they're about to witness something they've never seen before. Judging by the clips and trailers released it's clear that this final installment is going to strike a very different tone, giving us a new side to the Hunger Games experience all together. One that will change us, as it has changed our characters. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is going to be full of eye-popping action, heart-rending drama, and hopefully some more badass Katniss moments.

4. Katniss becomes the Mockingjay

I've been rooting for Katniss since the very day she belted out those fateful words, taking over responsibility for Prim's entrance into the Hunger Games. Her courage in doing so, her bravery when facing the repercussions of her love, is so admirable. What's even better is that Katniss Everdeen is a true-blue role model to look up to.

It all began during the Reaping of District 12, and Panem has never been the same...

Katniss has become increasingly independent as her character has developed from young hunting girl to powerful warrior—she's still hunting, but this time for much bigger game. She's matured beyond all recognition as she is forced to fight her her life and the lives of her family, but for those of every citizen of the Districts. She's now a symbol of hope, a beacon for the hopelessly oppressed of Panem. One moment of pure courage has changed the world around her forever, and no one's lives will ever be the same. Our Mockingjay shines as the Girl on Fire.

5. Panem unites!

No two Districts are the same. Each operates on its own and manufactures different goods for the Capitol. However, as the Revolution's resolution draws closer and closer, so too do the Districts. Everyone is now banding together against one common enemy: the Capitol. To think that an entire country of people have come together over one previously-unknown girl's act of love is almost as beautiful as Katniss' love for her family to begin with.

6. We finally find out who Katniss really loves

Okay, now the question every Hunger Games film fan has been dying to know the answer to: Who are you going to choose, Katniss? Kindhearted baker's boy Peeta or the dedicated friend, Gale?

Don't leave us hangin' K.Deen! We know Katniss has feelings for Peeta, that much is so obvious... but, there's Gale. Placing herself in a love triangle of sorts, Katniss has deep love and care for her lifelong partner-in-crime. The handsome, responsible and strong hunter she's spent her life learning beside. The boy who should win her heart, but she's continuously pulled to Peeta.

Will she profess her undying love for the boy wonder that is Peeta, or will she reward Gale's loyalty from the very beginning with her own?

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2' lights all hearts on fire in theaters this weekend!
