It was a great read and made me go see the movie again, and I agree with everything you said, except one thing. I don't believe the kiss happened as fast as you think. Two things make me think that. 1. Pym is out of the hospital. He got shot, and he's not a spring chicken anymore. He would have been in the hospital for a while. That allows time for that relationship to grow. Also: 2. Scott runs off to a repaired house after the kiss. Even with a wealthy friend repairing that much damage takes time. So I think the end of the movie is possibly weeks later. Now saying that, I still agree it wasn't needed, but it's a bit more believable then a few days after. But I could be wrong.
