In Britannia, they’re faced with the powerful Ten Commandment, Piety, Calmadios, Diane believes they should flee. Meliodas tells them that “they will break his commandment if they flee.” However, Calmadios attacks Diane before they can decide. Both Diane and King are stronger in the bodies of Gloxinia and Drole. Emboldened by their new power, they’re ready for battle. King uses Spirit Spear Basquias, Form Two, Guardian, piercing Calmadios’s six arms with it’s stinger.

One of the four Archangel’s, Ludociel
The Goddess Clan’s Divine Lance Corporal, Nerobasta criticizes Meliodas, Diane and King for only managing to “drive one demon back.” Ludociel appears to welcome them and announce the end of the Holy War. Despite the hope for peace, Ludociel has no interest in peace. He wants to “wipe out the demons.” Elizabeth questions Ludociel. Despite, Meliodas being a demon that fights along side them, Ludociel thinks he’s less than they’re. This episode possess the question, who is really evil? The demons are more complicated than we believe. However, the angels are actually showing themselves to be more sinister. Elizabeth and Meliodas are the exceptions.
The sinister plan of Ludociel
King meets Gerharde, the younger sister of Gloxinia. King senses a barrier at the back of the fairy forest. He’s asks Gerharde what it is. She informs him that it was Mr. Ludociel that created it. She says that it’s a trap for demons. The Ten Commandments arrive with their army. However, this is all part of the plan of Ludociel. Meliodas plans on speaking to the Commandments. However, Elisabeth beats him to it. She asks them to trust her and leave. When one of the Ten Commandments asks for Meliodas’s head, Elisabeth refuses. However, Ludociel begins his plan. A giant arc rises from the forest, with demons trapped inside. The demons exists that in-between life and death. Ludociel destroys all the demons. Ludociel and demons prepare for war.
My familiarity with the Seven Deadly Sins is limited, but I do know that in the current timeline demon are the villains. It’s interesting that 3,000 years ago apparently it was the opposite. Of course in general demons are considered to be evil and angels are good. The Seven Deadly Sins inverts this. It has happened before in other shows, but will have possible consequences (in this series) when they return to the present. As a shonen series, this season hasn’t meet my expectations. I know fights are coming but I’ve been underwhelmed so far. Regardless, I can’t wait for the war to begin.
