In episode 19, Escanor continues to fight the Demon King by himself with the power of Ultimate Sunshine and even gains the upper hand. But then the Demon King frees himself from his grasp. As his friends step in to help, Escanor declares that this is his fight alone. But then Meliodas confronts Escanor, making him recall why Meliodas allowed him to join the Sins. As the Demon King creates a colossal monster of darkness, Escanor tells the others that he has always wanted to sacrifice his life for them. As he jumps towards the monster, all the other Sins join him. Meliodas tells him if he wants to endanger his life for them, it is only fair that they endanger their lives for him.

Meanwhile, Zeldris easily sees through his father’s ruse in the spirit realm and declares that he trusts his older brother. The Demon King laments that it pains him that he has to kill his beloved son. Zeldris rejects the notion, knowing full well that his father never loved him. Eventually, he forces the Demon King out of his body.

In the real world, a brief emotional reunion happens between Meliodas and Zeldris. The Commandments split and fall all over Britannia. A horrified Merlin explains that as both Meliodas and Zeldris have rejected him, the Demon King wants to turn the entire Britannia into his vessel. In episode 20, the Sins will likely continue fighting against the Demon King, who might cast Death Zero, stupefying the Sins with gravity magic. Merlin subsequently might cast Limit Breaker, which will enable the Sins to use all their powers.
