Captured by the Capitol In the third and final book, Mockingjay, Peeta is held captive by President Snow and used against Katniss. During his captivity, he was tortured, beaten, and hijacked using tracker jacker venom to distort his memories of Katniss until he believed she was a mutt trying to kill him. Moving onto the events of Mockingjay, in the aftermath of Peeta's torture, he gets hijacked by the Capitol and makes Katniss out as a target to kill. Johanna, however, during her time at the Capitol, gets soaked in water and electrocuted — which I imagine is about as bad as it gets. Peeta was indeed brainwashed, though the term used in the book is "hijacking". Hijacking is a type of torture employed at the Capitol using the hallucinatory effects of tracker-jacker (the wasps from the first book/movie) venom as a way to manipulate the victim's memories. Throughout both installments of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, it was revealed that Peeta was physically and mentally tortured by the Capitol. They used tracker jacker venom to distort his memories to turn him against Katniss. Being hijacked has replaced Peeta's fond memories of Katniss and shaded them with doubt and fear, effectively turning him into a weapon to be used against her. But fortunately Mockingjay Part 2 should be a little bit kinder to Peeta overall. He doesn't get off scot free and his recovery is a slow process, for sure.
