The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 18 Spoilers

In episode 17, Meliodas urges the Sins to go back, claiming that this is his fight alone. Ban retorts by asking if Meliodas came to purgatory with Elizabeth to die together there. Meliodas finally expresses his gratitude towards the others. Merlin tells Gowther to take Meliodas to the spirit world and free Zeldris. But the Demon King proves to be too strong for the Sins to launch attacks on him on two fronts. This is when Escanor arrives to fight one last time alongside his comrades.

Escanor’s involvement allows Gowther to take Meliodas to the spirit world. Seeing them, Zeldris’ consciousness reveals that he knows that the one beside him is not the real Gelda. The fake Gelda vanishes, and numerous illusions of Zeldris appear. When Meliodas tries to attack one, Gowther tries to stop him. Before Gowther vanishes, he makes Meliodas realize that disturbing the strings causes the spirit world to recognize them as foreign entities. Eventually, Gelda arrives in purgatory and gains entry into the spirit world by biting Zeldris. She then helps free her lover from the strings, and they prepare to face the Demon King together.

Outside, Meliodas returns to his body and joins the battle. King asks Diane to marry him. The latter severs the Demon King’s magical link to the lake. The episode ends as Escanor reaches the height of his power. In episode 18, Escanor might burn his vital force to fuel his battle against the Demon King. The Sins will likely join him and eventually defeat the Demon King together. In the spirit world, Zeldris and Gelda might also win against the Demon King.
