When Gatsby implied, “ She never loved you, do you hear?… She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me.”(Fitzgerald 130).

In the end of the play, Proctor chooses to die rather than sign his confession, ratting out his friends and ruining his good name in the town.

Towards the end of the book, Gatsby ends up in a very tight situation awaiting a call from Daisy that did not become a reality, but he passes away an incurable fanaticizing death, still feeling that he will never be able to make his dream a reality by making his long time sweetheart totally his.

Although Gatsby and Daisy had a history, he cannot come in five years later and think he can win her back from another man. Fitzgerald puts in this quote "She never loved you, do you hear? She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart, she never loved anyone except me" (130).

Before Gatsby became tainted, "he had been beating his way along the south shore of Lake Superior as a clam-digger... or in any other capacity that
His blind pursuit of Daisy and the measures he went to trying to attain her led up to his unfortunate end. It was inevitable that the things he did for her would eventually catch up to him. He involved himself in vague activities to make enough money to buy a “house so that Daisy would be just across the bay”, he wanted Daisy to “go to Tom and say ‘I never loved you”, and he lied for her (4,6). He wanted her so bad, and his willingness to do anything killed him. He was too busy aimlessly following Daisy that he failed to think about the consequences he may have to
She uses it to get what she wants which is why she tricks the reader sto think that she’s still in love with him when in reality it’s he’s money, like how she cried into Gatsby’s beautiful shirts (Fitzgerald 92). Also since Tom is always running off with another girl each night, Daisy may feel alone and in need for attention which is why she keeps sending mixed signals to Jay Gatsby in the novel. Since Daisy never admitted to Tom at the hotel about never loving him, this shows Daisy’s true colors, but Gatsby was already too deep to realize the mistakes he was making. So, that is why Daisy never attended Jay’s funeral because her true colors bursted, was afraid to ruin her reputation, and Gatsby gone means no more

When Gatsby revealed to Tom,” She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart, she never loved anyone except me” (Fitzgerald 130). The truth to Tom about Gatsby and Daisy's intentions revealed what she thought in her heart.
