← Two Choices
Feelings Within (内感情, Uchi kanjō) is the sixth chapter of volume seven and fifty-eighth chapter overall.
All of the investigation data is erased, which means one thing: Watari is dead.
Then, L closes his eyes and dies.
Rem is wasting away in the other room. Her whole body is turning into dust. Panicked, the investigation team takes L to the hospital where he is pronounced dead. Pretending to be angry, Light goes to search for the Shinigami that killed L.
In reality, Light knows that he quickly has to find the remains of Rem and retrieve the Death Note she left behind. He does so and shows the team the remains of a Shinigami. Then, Light swears that he will avenge L’s death. However, for now, Light has won. He has gotten rid of Watari. Most importantly, he has outsmarted L, and now he is out of the way.
Now, there is no one stopping Light from being god of a new world.
Ohba said the chapter's title "Feelings Within" generally refers to L's last internal monologue. People often asked him what L was trying to say but Ohba make it clear that Death Note is about readers discovering their own conclusions about the work, so he refused to answer the questions. Ohba believed that not knowing every aspect of some things makes them feel more exciting.
Ohba also said that the title also refers to Light's emotions the time of L's monologue.
