During the reunion she recognizes Gatsby and falls back in love with him. Shortly, Tom finds out their affair and is annoyed by his wife's unfaithfulness, although he is already having a relationship with a woman. Subsequently, he gathers some friends comprising of Carraway and Daisy to go with him to a hotel to meet Gatsby. There, he blames him of making his wealth unlawfully. Trying to prove he cannot harm him, Tom returns her to East Egg with Gatsby. On their way back Gatsby's car got into an accident and killed Wilson earlier.
