When Nick returns after giving Gatsby and Daisy 30 minutes to themselves, Daisy's face is tear-stained and Gatsby is glowing. It is clear that the two of them have shared some deep emotions and that Gatsby, at least on one level, believes his dream is slowly becoming reality.

When Nick left, Gatsby was full of nervous energy. When Nick returned, Gatsby seemed a bit puzzled and in his own world. Nick realized that Daisy did not meet his fantasy expectations, yet Gatsby was too far into his make-believe image of Daisy for him to give up on his dream.
