The Chapter begins with Nick going to visit Gatsby in the early morning for breakfast, a day after the accident (Daisy and Gatsby running over Myrtle in Gatsby’s car). Here Gatsby tells Nick the story about Daisy and himself and of their prior relationship. Gatsby then declares his refusal to leave Long Island to forget about Daisy and Nick leaves for work. After this conversation, Wilson arrives to the scene, seeking vengeance from losing Myrtle. He accomplices this by shooting Gatsby, he then commits suicide. Nick shows up only to find the gruesome sight of the two dead bodies and imagines what Gatsby's last thoughts may have been about.
