The death of Gatsby
Gatsby is murdered by George Wilson, Myrtle Wilson's husband. Gatsby's car hits Myrtle as it travels through the "valley of ashes," but it is Daisy, not Gatsby, who is driving it.
George Wilson, in his grief over his wife, believes that Myrtle was running out of the garage to talk to Gatsby. After he finds an expensive dog leash among her belongings, he also believes that Myrtle and Gatsby were having an affair.
George travels to West Egg and shoots Gatsby as he floats on a raft in his swimming pool. He then shoots himself.
wedding of tom and daisy
At the beginning, when Daisy is talking to Nick on the porch, Nick’s wording was interesting. Nick talks about the restless way her eyes flashed, resembling Tom’s habit, and her whole performance pleased her because it represented their "membership in a rather secret society to which she and Tom belonged." Tom and Daisy play their roles in a rich, bored society, and the drama of it all is the reason that they do it. Daisy plays the air-headed, pretty wife, while Tom plays the hulking, brute of a man. They thought they were a perfect combination of the ideal wealthy couple.
Jordan Baker major golf pro
She's a Pro
Jordan is a golfer—a professional golfer. Already, we know she's different from Daisy. Where Daisy is always fluttering and babbling and giggling and basically acting like a dumb girl (her words, not ours), Jordan is hard, direct, and cynical. And she's bored to tears. We don't know much about her family, except that she has "one aunt about a thousand years old" (1.137), but we know that she and Daisy spent their "white girlhoods" together (1.140). Given the looks that Daisy and Tom give each other, we suspect that she might not be so "white" (as in, pure) anymore.
But there's a problem with her game. She's a cheat. And Nick describes her as not just a golf cheat, but a cheat at life:
Jordan Baker instinctively avoided clever, shrewd men, and now I saw that this was because she felt safer on a plane where any divergence from a code would be thought impossible. She was incurably dishonest. She wasn't able to endure being at a disadvantage and, given this unwillingness, I suppose she had begun dealing in subterfuges when she was very young in order to keep that cool, insolent smile turned to the world and yet satisfy the demands of her hard, jaunty body.
