The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes brings Lucy Gray Baird into the story, and here is what happens to her in the books and if she wins. The Hunger Games franchise returns after a long hiatus following the conclusion of the four-film series starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen with a prequel set during the 10th Hunger Games.
