In episode 4, Diablo, Horn, and the girls make their way to the dungeon, but Fanis stops them on their tracks with her fleet. Lumachina reveals to her that she has been inflicted with the Death Knell Curse, and they are going to the dungeon to retrieve an item that can cure not only her but also all the afflicted people in the city. They escape after Diablo causes an earthquake around them.
As they travel toward the dungeon guided by Horn, Gewalt arrives in the city looking for Lumachina and meets Fanis. Meanwhile, Diablo and the others breeze through the obstacles in the dungeon. As he can’t tell the others that he is the one who built the dungeon, Diablo keeps up his Demon Lord act. At one point, the adventurers even deliver an idol performance in front of a group of primate-like creatures known as White Jaegers.
As they try to pass through a narrow edge above a torrential river, summoned creatures suddenly start attacking them. Gewalt appears and tries to kill Lumachina, but Horn jumps on him and falls with him to the river below. Diablo leaps into the river right after them, hoping to save Horn. In episode 5, Diablo might save Horn and then kill Gewalt. The adventurers might get the item they came to the dungeon for and use it to heal everyone. Diablo later might help Fanis by dealing with the Fallen Varakness.
