He meets the pantherian Rem and the elf Shera, who declare that they are the ones who summoned him to make him their slave. However, because of a magic ring that the protagonist has, the spell backfires, and Rem and Shera now have collars around their necks.

How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Season 2 Episode 3 Spoilers

In episode 2, Diablo and the girls arrive at Zircon Tower City on a sand vessel. When they step into the city, they immediately realize that something is terribly wrong there. Diablo meets Horn, a young lockpicker, and learns that his dungeon has been discovered. Fortunately, no one has made it beyond level 3 yet. The adventurers get into an argument with a Paladin brigade member, local goons who serve under the Paladins. When the goon tries to attack Lumachina, Diablo uses his magic to defeat him. Lumachina subsequently heals a child suffering from the Death Knell disease.

Suddenly, a massive sand whale is spotted rushing toward the city. Diablo uses Multiplex Magic to stop the monster in its tracks. But even the powerful spell doesn’t seem to be enough to kill the monster. This is when Batutta arrives and hits the monster with a long-range attack with martial art, Seven Star Blast. Fanis Laminitus, the city’s feudal leader, hits the monster with a bullet from her magi gun, forcing it to retreat. After a tense standoff, Fanis threatens Lumachina and leaves.

Batutta apologizes to Lumachina for his men’s behavior earlier and invites the adventurers to his mansion. On their way, they notice that most people of the city are suffering and don’t have access to the priests, who only seem to help the privileged class. The episode ends as Lumachina invites Batutta to her room for a conversation. In episode 3, Batutta’s true motives might be revealed. Diablo might have to fight him to protect Lumachina. He might have to team up with Fanis to save the city’s population.
