Storyboard Text

  • Towards the beginning of chapter 7, Tom has left the room and Daisy goes up to Gatsby, kisses him, and states that she loves him. 
  • In this scene Daisy and Gatsby glance at each other and Daisy makes a remark about how cool Gatsby looks and that he has always looked so cool. Tom finally realizes that something has been going on between Gatsby and Daisy. This is important because it makes Tom very jealous and angry, which factors into the fight between him and Gatsby. "He got up, his eyes still flashing between Gatsby and his wife. No one moved." 
  • Gatsby and Tom arguing over who Daisy loves. She says that she loves Gatsby but she admits that she did love Tom at one point and that's not something she can forget. This scene makes the tension between everyone more prominent and adds to the suspense of the chapter. "She began to sob helplessly. 'I did love him once - but I loved you too." 
  • In this scene Myrtle, the mistress of Tom, runs out onto the street yelling at her husband. A car, driven by Daisy, comes out of no where and hits Myrtle, killing her instantly, then drives away. "The 'death car' as the newspaper called it, didn't stop; it came out of the gathering darkness, wavered tragically for a moment and then disappeared around the next bend." 
  • After the accident the cops show up and wrap myrtles body of the table in a blanket. Tom has arrived and Wilson begins to blame Tom for killing Myrtle because in the begging of the chapter, Tom was the one driving the yellow car when he stooped for gas at Wilson's shop. "You don't have to tell me what kind of car it was! I know what kind of car it was!' Watching Tom, I saw the wad of muscle back of his shoulder tighten under his coat. [...] 'You've got to pull yourself together," he (Tom) said with soothing gruffness." 
  • This scene is after the accident when Nick is ready to go back home from Tom's house. Gatsby joins his and explains how Daisy and him got Myrtle with the yellow car. This scene confirms to the reader that it was in fact Daisy who hit Myrtle "How the devil did this happen?' 'Well i tried to wing the wheel-' he broke off, and suddenly I guessed at the truth."
