In the Book In the Movie
   Several weeks after the new peacekeepers arrive and whip Gale, they destroy the Hob and shut down all illegal trade. It is during the burning of the Hob that Gale is taken and whipped.
   After Peeta reveals the locket to Katniss containing the pictures of her mother, sister and Gale she kisses him to make him stop talking. It turns into a passionate makeout session. There is no passionate kissing.
   When the games start, Peeta just stands on his platform because he can't swim. After Finnick and Katniss get weapons, he returns and gets Peeta and guides him to land. Peeta can swim and fights another tribute under water and kills him. He can gets to the land on his own.
   The poison fog causes serious damage that lasts for quite some time. They get some relief from the water and Haymitch eventually sends them ointment that helps but they struggle with it for most of the time. They simply wash off the blisters in the water and are totally fine right away.
   Katniss learned to swim at her father's abandoned cabin in the woods. She returns their often. She already knows how to swim and never visits the cabin.
