Let’s talk about this scene: I haven’t seen this scene discussed before in this context but look at Effie during this moment. For a split second, she was relieved that Haymitch was chosen because in her mind, it meant that Peeta was saved. Spared from the Games. Sure, she was distraught that Katniss was the only female tribute from District 12 but she couldn’t control it. But with the males. Haymitch & Peeta. She had two options and her hope was not Peeta and it wasn’t.. But what she didn’t count on was that Peeta can volunteer to take Haymitch’s place and all that hope she had was now gone. To further expand on her development; this moment of volunteering is different to the first film: in the first film, she was excited about the prospect… a girl volunteering for her younger sister. But now.. not anymore…
This is the moment when she realises how terrible the Games truly is and this is the moment that for how ever long she has been a escort for the tributes of The Hunger Games, Effie Trinket is no longer thinking about the entertainment she brings to the Capitol; she is now thinking how much her humanity has been lost by sending these innocent children into a deadly arena.

"When I started working on television in 1986, I quickly learned that fan mail came
with the territory. I would read letters like: “Hi, my name is Sarah. I really like your show. Can I please have an autographed picture?” But when I started working on SVU, I got a different kind of mail: “Hi, my name is Sarah. I’m 16 years old. My father has been raping me since I was 12, and I have never told anyone.” I remember my breath going out of me when the first letter came, and I’ve gotten thousands like it since then.”
"When people ask me, you know…what is it about. It is about the courage, which you have, to heal. And so what we do is we foster and we water that garden, because the fact that somebody discloses, that somebody…See? It’s so sad. But the fact that like…that little boxer, that little…human spirit that comes out and goes "You know what? I don’t want to live like this anymore. I don’t deserve to hide. I don’t wanna have my lights shut off. I wanna get this off me.". And we say "Okay, great! You can, you will, and we will help you"
