Hi, I just watched the movie and I did not read the book afterwards. But, please, can someone explain the ending to me?

Do they come together again? Why does Nick ask Amy what she is thinking about? And why is he stroking her head?

- Do they come together again?
Yes, Nick stays only for the baby although from time to time, he admits (this before the pregnancy reveal) that he sometimes forgets Amy is a murderer. So he hates being with Amy most of the time, but as she told him, he also knows he won't ever meet somebody as interesting as herself.

- Why does Nick ask Amy what she is thinking about?
In their relationship, knowledge is not power anymore. For Nick, knowledge is survival, and he fears that displeasing Amy by forgetting anything she likes or dislikes, this might provoke her and he will end up as Desi.

- And why is he stroking her head?
As I mentioned before, Nick needs knowledge from Amy and I guess this is some sort of metaphor... also because he mentioned many times he wished to break her skull lol.
