Summary Chp. 5

Chapter Five

Late, after his evening in the park with Jordan, Nick returns to his house on Long Island. Gatsby’s place next door is illuminated. Gatsby walks over to talk to Nick. He and Nick set a date up a date with Daisy for afternoon tea to be held at Nick’s house.

Gatsby at this time offers Nick work, “it happens to be rather a confidential thing,” and Nick turns Gatsby down.

The afternoon tea date at Nick’s house comes off. Daisy and Gatsby are reunited.

After tea the threesome adjourn to Gatsby’s house, and he shows Daisy around. Nick tags along, but Daisy and Gatsby only have eyes for each other.
