It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

It's somewhat complex IMHO

You're right that the "happy" ending doesn't fit as well with the mood of the symphony's opening (i.e., in the first movement), so in that sense, an overall arc is made very clear (going back to the slower, haunting opening). But, OTOH, it does fit better with the main idea of the last movement. Actually, I like both endings - but maybe the happy ending just a bit more. And besides, Prokofiev HAD to write that happy ending because he needed the money from the Stalin Prize! ;-)
