This! This right here! Look at what he’s doing with his hands. HE WANTS HIS ROPE. In Mockingjay, we learn that Finnick repeatedly tied knots in order to relieve his stress. His anxiety over the abduction of his beloved Annie and the death of his mentor and mother figure Mags nearly broke him and the only way for him to deal with his anguish was to tie knots. And we see it again in this scene. The fact that Sam Claflin incorporated that into his performance so early in the game is simply amazing.
