At the beginning of the chapter, Nick notices that Gatsby has ceased having his iconic parties, and soon learns that it is because Gatsby no longer needs them to attract Daisy's attention. On the hottest day of the summer, Tom, Daisy, Gatsby, Jordan and Nick all get together at the Buchanan house for lunch. Throughout the course of the afternoon, Tom’s suspicions are solidified when he realises that Daisy and Gatsby are having an affair, and from then on he sets out to win her back. Upon Daisy’s request, they decide to go to New York for the day, and Nick rides with Jordan and Tom in Gatsby’s car, while Gatsby and Daisy ride together in Tom’s car. While stopping for gas, Tom and Nick learn that Mr. Wilson is aware of his wife’s infidelity and he plans to move out West, however, he does not know who the man is. Upon arriving to New York, the group decides to take a suite at the Plaza Hotel, where Tom confronts Gatsby about his infatuation with Daisy, which sparks a dispute between the two men. During the climax of the novel, Tom accuses Gatsby of bootlegging. This causes Daisy, who was in love with Gatsby hours earlier, to falter in her determination to leave Tom. Afterwards, Gatsby and Daisy drive home together in his yellow car, while the rest take Tom’s coupe home. However, on the way home Nick, Tom and Jordan come across a car accident in front of the Wilson’s gas station, in which Myrtle has been killed. It was Daisy (driving Gatsby’s car) that killed her, but Gatsby is willing to take the blame. At the end of the chapter, Gatsby is left looking at the Buchanan’s house in order to make sure that Tom will not hurt Daisy, while inside the house Daisy and Tom seem to have reconciled their differences.
