Spec script question- if I have a twist towards the end that I want to be properly set up from early on in the film, should I give it away early in descriptions, or let it be a surprise on paper too?

Including the ending of a story is always a must when pitching, BUT how you do that is up to you. I have seen both revealing twists and holding them back for the screenplay (but saying there *is* a twist) work equally well in one page pitches and in pitch meetings. Whatever you do, ensure you hook your pitchee's interest. That's the only "rule". Good luck!
