Nope. The wire is tight and the Gripple is holding it just fine.

Only if you had intended to go back at some point and retighten it for some reason, but you shouldn't need to.
As far as the wrap, I suppose you might feel the need to do something with the ends anyway, but I rarely do anything other than making one180 deg bend back toward the gripple and 'lightly' take a turn or two around the wire just to keep it from sticking out 4-6" in the air.
It ain't like it's going to slip or go anywhere anyway.
