Confusing question

The question 'The last time he came, he didn't behave himself.' is confusing as this could refer to a series of visits rather than a final visit. Therefore either 'la semaine dernière or la dernière semaine '' could be correct

John, rereard the section on 'la dernière fois' - a special case. 'The last time HE CAME' has to use 'la dernière fois. If it was "He didn't behave himself LAST TIME." - you could use either «la dernière fois» or «la fois dernière»

Dernier = final / previous (adjectives that change meaning according to position)

oui, je suis aussi la-même.  mais vous pouvez utilisez, la dernier fois - n'est pas 'la semaine dernière'; aussi je pense que, sera plus clairer, si'il utilise , l'anglais- ' the final time he met' pour emphasizer- final fois..
