Haha there's a lot going on here. Sean being critical of Mar for buying a loosie is kind of a classic pining nice guy move to me. He's really trying to be everything to her - at least everything he has the power to be - protective, agreeable, engaged. And Mar has a way of indulging it, because she needs Sean and he's still there in the capacity he used to be, even though it's not enough for him. Wow, it's sad!

And Mar just @#$%ed Will (never mind the towel thing) and Sean has no idea. I think? Maybe he knows where she went. Either way that's the saddest bit to me when it's on top of all the rest of this.
The old-as-time story of a nice girl using a nice guy for emotional comfort because he's available because he thinks being available is what she wants from a man, but in reality that's what she needs from a friend but in absence of which, a clueless suitor would do.
Mutually use and be used and neither realizes that if they were honest with each other maybe they'd find a true friend to help stave loneliness off and to support each other in making themselves the best version of themselves for an eventual partner.
