Wjen Nick runs into Tom Buchanan on New York's Fifth Avenue, Tom admits that it was he who sent Wilson to Gatsby's. Tom's demeanor is rather repulsive, he shows no remorse and says that Gatsby deserved to die. Nick reflects that Tom and Daisy are capable only of cruelty and destruction; they are kept safe from the consequences of their actions by their fortress of wealth and privilege.
