Her attachment to Gatsby is beyond her comfort zone so being married to Tom keeps Daisy away from Gatsby. She gets drunk for the first time and cries over her lover and does not let go of Gatsby’s letters until “it [is] coming to pieces like snow” (76; ch. 4). Then after those few months of marriage, her behavior has changed as she confirms later on that she “did love [Tom] once” during the conversation she is in with Tom and Gatsby (132; ch. 7).
Also Blanche realizes her sister’s attachment and affection towards her husband who has a rough and harsh character throughout the story. Stella’s lack of interest and weak sisterly relation and Stanley’s continuous abusive character is what causes Blanche to end up in a mental health institution.

At first, taking into consideration Blanche DuBois’s tense and nervous attitude at the beginning of the play, some might find it a good return to a tragic finale.
