Character Analysis[]

He is characterized as being generally unaware of surrounding events, and quite clueless when it comes to his wife. After Myrtle is run over by Gatsby's car, George is told by Tom Buchanan that a man named Jay Gatsby had not only killed Myrtle, but also was the one Myrtle was cheating with, despite him doing the latter. Enraged upon hearing this George finds out where Gatsby is and shoots him and himself, ending both of their lives.
