18 Times Finnick Odair Was Almost Too Bae For 'The Hunger Games'

The dreamiest Tribute in all of Panem. It is known.

Finnick Odair, the dreamiest Tribute in Panem, enjoyed a moment of happiness when he was reunited with his love Annie at the end of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1." But his happiness will be rather short-lived when "Mockingjay -- Part 2" storms into theaters on Nov. 20. With the rebellion underway, there isn't a whole lot of time for marital bliss.

That doesn't mean, however, we can't look back at some of Finnick's most swoon-worthy moments in the "Hunger Games" franchise. Sam Claflin made his debut as the extremely arrogant Finnick in the second installment of the blockbuster series, "Catching Fire." Finnick, a previous champion of the Hunger Games, had been called back to compete in the Quarter Quell, along with Katniss and Peeta, and his tension with Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss was one of the highlights of the films.

Eventually, Katniss and Finnick, with the rest of Squad 451, team up to take down the Capitol and bring President Snow to justice -- AKA "The 76th Hunger Games." But before all of the drama, and sadness, of the mission consume every ounce of our beings, let's take some time to admire the bravest Tribute District 4 has ever produced: Finnick Odair.

  1. First of all, who else could rock this sweater?

    Seriously, that thing looks dry clean only. That's not even practical for District 4. Do not go anywhere near water in that thing, Finnick. DO NOT.

  2. And pull off man jewelry like this?

    It makes him look all-powerful and victorious, duh.

  3. We were feeling this look, TBH.

    He's like the sexy merman of our dreams.

  4. His smile is so disarming.

    That is the whitest shade of white we've ever seen on someone other than a Kardashian.

  5. You don't want to cross him in battle.

    He's got some skill.

  6. You really, really don't.

    OK, a lot of skill.

  7. See? We told you he was dreamy.

    Best bae ever.

  8. SWOON.

    Annie and Finnick have been through a lot and have finally found their way back to each other, and now they get to celebrate and make things official in "Mockingjay -- Part 2."

  9. He looks good even with giant, bloody claw marks on his face.

    If only you had that chunky sweater to wipe the blood off your face.

  10. The thirst is real.

    No, but, like, really real. The Hunger Games are life or death, people!

  11. He's the friend who always carries a treat.

    So you never have to worry about cravings.

  12. He's always good for a reality check when you need one.

    WAKE UP, SHEEPLE KATNISS.

  13. But he will eff you up if he needs to.

    Respect.

  14. Katniss, what's good?

    No. Really, though. What's good?

  15. In the end, he's just a sensitive soul.

    He's more of a lover than a fighter.

  16. How could you honestly be mad at this man?

    His smile literally kills us.

  17. And when you need a cool name for your secret operation...

    You know, the one that will revolutionize the world as you know it.

  18. Finnick is here to wax poetic.

    Sob. May the odds ever be in your favor, Finnick, you brave, beautiful man.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" hits theaters November 20.
