Why do you think tom reacts to finally understandiy tho love between daisy and Gatsby by irrationally interresting they go to the city at that moment?

Going to the city and removing himself from an uncomfortable situation allows Tom to reorganize his thoughts and get ready for a fight. He diffuses the situation..... goes to the hotel with the rest of the group, and then embarks on an unmerciful attack.
