This is a tough one. I think the revision says too much, so prefer the original. Since this is essentially a narrative I see how the added exposition is needed. Would love to see a minor compromise and have the last 2 lines restored. I think we can figure out Larry's motives from what's been stated to that point and the word "so" just denotes that the following just follows what comes before and how could it do anything but ?

Thanks for the help additional feedback. You guys are  good.  I think this dead horse is beaten enough.  Especially when there are triolets springing up everywhere to be read and admired.  8) 8)

This has clarity because you're telling us, but it has no snap. I prefer the original ending because the reader is left to join the dots, there is space for the reader to participate.

all the best
