She goes on to have an affair with him, but never actually confronts Gatsby or Tom about this. She would prefer to just deal with her unhappy marriage by not confronting it because she doesn 't want to deal with the consequences. In reference to Myrtle Wilson’s slaughter, Nick and Gatsby have this exchange, “ ‘ Was Daisy driving’ ‘Yes,’ he said after a moment, ‘but of course I’ll say I was…” (143 Fitzgerald). Gatsby is yet another person who protects Daisy from any consequences she may face. Daisy accidentally runs over Myrtle Wilson, something ironic in and of itself because Myrtle having an affair with Daisy’s husband, in a fit of emotions that she can 't control, and then doesn 't have to deal with any of the repercussions because she is protected from the by the men in her life.
In addition, the author is trying to convey to the audience that Daisy is too secure in her marriage with Tom to even consider leaving it.

Though he did not die immediately, Bobby did end up dying on the way over to the drop site. He was thrown in the back of the car with a cloth shoved down his throat and with a rug placed on top to cover him. His body was stripped naked and dumped in a marsh culvert in Wolf Lake, south of Chicago.

Soon after the narrator and his friends get involved in a violent fight, striking the big greasy guy with a tire iron, which caused the guy to fall to the ground unconscious. His spontaneous actions caused him to run into Greasy Lake when he heard a group of cars heading their way. As the narrator is hiding in Greasy Lake he comes across the dead body of Al, a missing biker. It is at this specific point in the story that the narrator has a moment of enlightenment when he says, "My car was wrecked; he was dead (Boyle 534)." Seeing the dead body floating in the lake, the narrator came to conclusion that being "bad" may result in death and that he one day could end up dead, floating in a lake somewhere.
On Gatsby’s way to the swimming pool, “he stopped and shifted it a little, and the chauffeur asked him if he needed help” (161). If Gatsby took up his chauffeur’s offer, the chauffeur would have represented Simon of Cyrene, but Gatsby refuses and finishes walking to the pool himself (Dilworth 119). After Gatsby’s death, the mattress is found in the water and its movement creates “a thin red circle in the water” (Fitzgerald 162). This mixture of blood and water alludes to when Roman soldiers stabbed Jesus in the side after it was discovered that he had already died and “blood and water” flowed out from his side (Dilworth 119). Through this symbolism, it is clear to see that Fitzgerald is drawing parallels from the crucifixion of Jesus and the death of Gatsby, further cementing Gatsby as a representative of a Christ-like
“I raised my gun and pulled the trigger, and I killed a man.” “Every time I stopped shooting to change magazines and saw my two young lifeless friends, I angrily pointed my gun into the swamp and killed more people”(Beah, 118).

He needed a reason for the killing, but later he makes it, so killing is a need for him and without it he goes insane.

Doing this he put himself in position to either get arrested or in this case shot. Back to my last reason if he would’ve just left Daisy and Tom be, Tom would not of had the urge to tell the George Wilson details about the car, “That yellow car I was driving this afternoon wasn’t mine you hear.”, “It was a yellow car”(Fitzgerald 140). Therefore covering for Daisy, George knew exactly who’s car it was. Gatsby’s, and now George wants his revenge on him.
