The fight between Meliodas and King finally kicks off with Meliodas demonstrating superior ability in blocking all of King’s attacks, however, will it be enough to be victorious?
Our episode again begins with the continuation of Ban revealing himself to the Were-fox Zhivago. Ban informs Zhivago that he was able to drink the water from the fountain of youth and has in turn become unable to age or die. The two have a discussion about Ban’s relationship with Meliodas and how he was unable to kill his captain when it came down to it in order to have Elaine revived. Zhivago leaves Ban with his final words of advice “Ask for forgiveness from the bottom of your heart” in reference to Meliodas, and sadly passes away while seated next to Ban.
Returning to the fight between Meliodas and King, King questions Meliodas’ allegiance to the Demon Clan commenting on his connection to the Ten Commandments after 3000 years. Having blocked another attack by King, Meliodas returns the query right back at King, asking if he really is the Fairy King due to the lack of his prominent wings. The fight continues on as King uses his “Condense Power” ability to try attack, this prompts Meliodas to attempt a similar move where he condenses his Demon power into a single point and releases it from his body as a mass of darkness. Just what is this power and what will it allow Meliodas to do?
Having been called out of the cave by the others, Meliodas asks for Jenna to return his power to him. His power had been kept in a giant Goddess Amber. Releasing the power form the amber causes the sky to darken due to the power and makes Howzer believe is has become night. Meliodas jokes around after the return of his power appearing to become evil from the darkness he has absorbed. This gives a reaction to the Ten Commandments as they notice the return of Meliodas’ strength.
With his power restored Meliodas asks Merlin to send him to the Ten Commandments location so that he may give them a greeting. Merlin explains the time lag he will experience in being unable to be teleported back safely. Meliodas understands and is sent off anyway. During his interaction with the Ten Commandments, Galand again challenges Meliodas, however, this time he appears to be completely overwhelmed and is left crushed on the floor by Meliodas power.
Just how strong has Meliodas become with the return of his power? How will the Commandments react to Meliodas’ warning of being crushed? Being teleported back at the perfect moment before Zeldris and Estarossa, Meliodas is saved for the moment. Will we learn of his true connection to the Demon Clan next episode? It seems we might have to wait a little longer as the preview for next episode shows us what appears to be a reunion between Ban and Elaine?!
