The Great Gatsby Chapter 8
This storyboard does not have a description.
NIck comes over to Gatsby's house and Gatsby talks to him about what happened last night while he was waiting for Daisy. He is sad because nothing happens while he was waiting for them to fight. Nick does feel bad but deep down already knew that was going to happen.
After a lot of talking about Daisy and how Gatsby feels about her and how it used to be, Nick realizes he is late for work so he says goodbye and goes. However on his way out there s a butler that wants to drain the pool. Since Gatsby hasn't used it all summer he goes out for a nice float on a mattress in the pool. On Nick's way out he tells Gatsby that he is better than any Buchanan.
The setting then switches to Wilson's Garage where he and Michaelis are talking about Myrtle's death. At this point in the story Wilson has basically lost it. In previous chapters he's even been walking around screaming oh god over and over again. Basically Michaelis is trying to calm Wilson down and help him move on. However Wilson decides to go after whoever was drivng the car that killed Myrtle
So as Wilson is walking around and wondering who was driving the car he rules out Tom, Nick and others based on him seeing them in a different car when arriving at the scene. He passes Gatsby's house and ends up ruling him the guilty party.
Since in his head Wilson thinks it was Gatsby who killed her he sneaks into his mansion and see's him outside at the pool. He shoots him and then shoots himself
At the end of chapter 8 when Nick finds out what has happened he immediately rushes over to see. As he witnesses his friend dead in the water he starts to think about how bad his life would of been because of Daisy and how in a way he had been betrayed.
