The party is a wild one; illegal liquor flows, visitors come from everywhere, there's a huge band, and Gatsby's house takes on a carnival atmosphere. People are reckless because of drunkeness and rumors fly about Gatsby's past. Gatsby takes part in all of this because he still hopes to win Daisy...... unfortunately, the evening ends with Myrtle's death.
Myrtle does not die. She is just punched in the nose by an open hand. She is later revealed in Chapter 7 still alive.
