In episode 8, Diablo and the rest of the group arrive at Sevenwall, the royal capital of the Kingdom of Lyferia. At the gate, they are questioned by the guards. As Diablo ponders if he has to intimidate the guards, Alicia Crystella shows up, and she seems to have enough sway in the city that the guards obey her instructions. She takes them to a luxurious inn and suggests that they should use it as a base of operations. When Rem tells her that they can’t afford it, Alicia assures her that she will pay for it. When Rose becomes jealous, Alicia displays her unquestionable loyalty to Diablo by declaring that she is ready to die for him.
When Horn voices her desire to become more powerful, Rose suggests that she should form a master-servant pact with Diablo, but Rem and Shera dissuade her from doing that. With the evidence that Alicia has gathered, Lumachina, Diablo, and others confront the Head Cardinal Vishos. Lumachina charges Vishos and his followers for their crimes and declares them excommunicated. However, Vishos turns the entire thing on its head and claims that the Head Priest has lied and committed debauchery.
Vishos convinces the paladins and people to attack Lumachina. Horn makes her escape. When Diablo prepares to defend his group, Lumachina asks him not to shed blood on the holy ground. The episode ends as the adventurers are taken to the floating church. In episode 9, there will likely be a battle inside the floating church between Diablo’s group and Vishos’ followers. The Head Cardinal might finally lose his position after drawing the ire of the Demon Lord from another world.
