Station Eleven: Chapter 54 Summary & Analysis

In “Dr. Eleven, Vol. 1, No. 2: The Pursuit,” Dr. Eleven meets the ghost of his mentor Captain Logan. Miranda spent years perfecting this scene, and years later, she returns to it in her delirium on the beach in Malaysia. Dr. Eleven asks Captain Logan what it was like in the end. Captain Logan responds, “It was exactly like waking up from a dream.”
This short chapter returns to Station Eleven and Miranda’s death, which in a way echoes Arthur’s. She too, is possessed by delirium and beauty as she dies. Her understanding of death is informed by the ghost of Dr. Eleven’s mentor, whose lyrical description offers a glimpse of hope.
