The Great Gatsby Chapter 6 Part 1

Storyboard Text

  • Michaelis, a Greek Man who owns a nearby restautant next to Wilson's garage, tells them that Myrtle Wilson was the victim of the crash. Nick realizes that Myrtle must've been hit by Gatsby and Daisy while they were driving home.
  • Back at Tom's house, Nick waits outside and finds Gatsby hiding in the bushes. Gatsby says that he's been outside for hours making sure that Daisy is safe.
  • Gatsby tells Nick that Daisy was driving when they hit Myrtle, but that he'll take the full blame. Still worried, Gatsby asks Nick to go check on Tom and Daisy for him.
  • Nick walks inside to find Tom and Daisy eating dinner and talking. They have put their differences aside.
  • Nick tells Gatsby that nothing is wrong and that they're eating dinner, and he leaves to catch the next train home.
  • All three women have changed tremedously over the course of the novel. Jordan has gotten closer to Nick and found her soulmate, Daisy boarded an emotional rollercoaster and rekindled the flame of love for Gatsby, but realized that a stronger, more long-lasting flame was right in front of her the whole time, and Myrtle died because of her anger towards her husband. I learned a lot about Daisy's past and how that affects the present. I also learned more about Gatsby. Knowing all of these details about the characters will connect to my essay prompt by defining every woman in the book and their role.
