We learn a bit more about Gatsby. His past is still a secret in a sense because we don't know what the truth really is. (I think he may be in the mob) We also find out about his feelings for Daisy, as he continually reaches for her home. (Which I feel is a bit creepy, that he has followed her here....a bit like a stalker)

Yes Gatsby is really drawn to Daisy and wants her to notice him. If someone did whathe did today, revolving his entire life arund trying to get close to a woman, he would probably be thought of as a loose cannon.
I thought he might have made his money during prohibition by selling liquor. he seems to genuinely like Nick even though I knew he also was using him once he knew he was Daisys cousin.

I find it humerous that Gatsby's past came out and it is so ironic that he really came from the "midwest."

He sure worked hard to pass this off.
