Janie waits nine months and when the summer comes again, she stands at the gate and begins "expecting things." Since her decisions thus far have failed her, she looks out of the gate for a new opportunity. The image of the gate reappears at the end of this chapter. Janie only begins to stand at the gate when she knows that she is irreversibly unhappy in her marriage to Logan. The gate again signifies a new beginning, a new experience, or a new adventure. The ending of this chapter heavily foreshadows that Janie's life is about to change again.
