The last chapter of Miss L is "Miss Lonelyhearts Has a Religious Experience." As you can imagine by this point in the book, chapter 15, something bad is about to happen. All the episodes in all the chapters before have ended without moving forward, moving on, pulling a thread.
Miss L. catches a fever and the whole world becomes a watery sheet.
"Doyle was carrying something wrapped in a newspaper."
