George is forced to kill Lennie in the last chapter in the story. When George kills Lennie, it shows how George "matures" by accepting the fact that Lennie does not fit in society, and how his size and his intellectual defiencies cause him to commit acts of violence, even if the acts are not intentional. When Lennie dies, the dream that he and George shared of having their own home dies with him.
