George Wilson (husband)
Myrtle Wilson is Tom Buchanan’s lover, whose lifeless husband George Wilson owns a run-down garage in the Valley of Ashes. Myrtle herself possesses a fierce vitality and desperately looks for a way to improve her situation. Unfortunately for her, she chooses Tom, who treats her as a mere object of his desire. When her husband demands to know who her lover is, she runs out of the room and into the road. She recognizes the yellow car driving by, thinking that Tom is behind the wheel. Tragically, she gets hit and is killed by Daisy Buchanan who is driving the car.
