Just finished Hunger Games II, loved it, but part of the final battle was confusing. Who is able to talk about it in the comments so not to give away spoilers?

I can. I've both seen the movie and read the books, and if you're confused by what I suspect it's both easy to explain and intentional.

1) Didn't notice. May have just been a trick of the light to imply his evilness
2) a) pretends to slit throat was actually removing her tracker because she knew a rescue was coming (this is why Peeta wasn't rescued at the same time)
b) wood staff with blade on end, wrapped with wire, was thing that was going to be used to electrify water
c) No, he was knocked out trying to get the wires working, probably attempting to short out the force field in the same way Katniss ended up doing with her arrow.

Well yes. She wanted Katniss to look dead.

putting blood on katniss's neck gave her an easy way to play dead when told.

Wasn't electricity dude trying to run a wire back to the beach, so that they could electrocute the ones that weren't allies? I assumed he'd been killed while trying to do that, which was why the tree was wrapped in wire. But the wire wouldn't have ended up doing anything, since the wire they were carrying to the beach had been broken. So Katness then attached the wire from the tree to the bladey thing to knock out the force field.

the tree needed to conduct the lightning down. the wire was supposed to go all the way to the waater but was cut. I suspect the staff was hoping to throw to the dome.

I'm actually thinking the spear wrapped with wire was for either attempting to hit the dome (unlikely given it is so high) or as a thought for defense if attacked near when the lightning was to hit.

1) He was bleeding from his mouth into whatever he was drinking, because he is seriously ill.

2) You need to read the books! :)

It was blood in the champagne (in the books, Katniss notices that he smells of blood and roses during her meeting with him at her home, the movie changed this to this visual instead), but as it is foreshadowing of a later plot point, I'll leave it at confirmation.
