Yes, include an empty spanned block at the end of your flow. The formatter
will try to balance all of your columns on top of this empty block. Modulo
keeps, breaks, widows, orphans, etc.
You may actually already have an empty block at the end of your flow used
for last page number citation ... if so, just add span="all" to that block.
I hope this helps.
