The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby, he might think he saw

I'd like to know if I'm right if I translate the phrase "He might think he saw a connection in it" by "He might imagine he had discovered / deduced a connection in it" in the following excerpt from the chapter Seven of The Great Gatsby, just after the accident in which Gatsby's car struck Myrtle:

A new point of view occurred to me. Suppose Tom found out that Daisy had been driving. He might think he saw a connection in it—he might think anything.

Thank you.

I think you have one possible translation to the idea. The only thing I might suggest is making sure you know what the "it" is.
