[4 of Spades]
[King of Spades]
[Queen of Spades]
With four cards left, you need three tricks. You have two. Play dummy's last trump. Presto, you have three! If East discards a spade, discard a club and take two more spade tricks. If East discards the queen of clubs, discard a spade and give up a club.
Incidentally, this ending works even if East does not have the queen of clubs. He still has to blank, his ace of clubs to protect spades and you can still play a low club to drive out the bare ace. You really do play beautifully.
