Let me offer this counterpoint. That scene between Andrew and Fletcher in the bar is critical because (1) it allows Fletcher to suss out Andrew re his (Fletcher’s) suspicion that Andrew is the guy who spilled the beans about Fletcher and (2) the friendly tone Fletcher has with Andrew sets up the Act Three ending (it also recalls the hallway interaction before the famous “are you rushing or are you dragging” scene). Fletcher is setting up Andrew to fuck him over. He did it once before. He’s going to do once again. The bar scene = the hallway scene. The calm before the shit-storm.
