Well, "last fold" sounds like "in the last of two or more folds" rather
than "the last in a fold".

Here is another way of thinking about the "fold": when you move your clock
back in the Fall, which hour do you think you had and which the government
gave you?  I think most people would say they had the first and the second
they are borrowing until the spring.  So, when your government creates a
fold in the local time, it gives you the second hour in addition to the
first that you've already had.
