What did Wilson tell Myrtle before she died?
Back to the Myrtle death story. We find all of this out from Nick who found out from Michaelis (or possibly some other intermediary): Wilson, in the midst of his grieving, revealed that he had recently started to suspect his wife of having an affair. He had found an expensive dog collar in her room (from Tom) and huge bruises on her face one day (also from Tom). Wilson came to the sudden conclusion that whoever was driving the car was the same man having an affair with his wife. Before she died, Wilson had taken his wife over to the window and told her that she couldn’t fool God – that God was always watching. Conveniently, the large eyes of T.J. Eckleburg emerged visible from the fog.
