The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 21 Spoilers
In episode 20, as the Seven Deadly Sins rush towards the Demon King, the latter casts Death Zero, a spell that uses gravity pressure to keep the enemies at one place. To counter this, Merlin uses Power Limit Break, which increases the Sins’ powers to the maximum level. This nullifies the effects of Death Zero, freeing the Sins. The Sins fight together as a unit against the Demon King. Merlin combines all the attacks in the spell Full Conversion spell. Although the Demon King tries to protect himself with the Ruler, Gowther’s Killer Switch nullifies it.
At the last moment, it seems Meliodas prevents the spell from hitting his father. When the Demon King calls him a fool, it is revealed that the one protecting him is just an illusion of Meliodas. The real Meliodas declares that this was a test to see if his father deserves a chance to redeem himself. And now, as the Demon King has failed the test, Meliodas has no problem killing him. They encounter each other one last time in the spirit world, where the Demon King reminds Meliodas of the repercussions of breaking the light and darkness cycle before disappearing completely.
After Zeldris and Gelda leave, it’s time for the Sins to bid farewell to one of their own. As Escanor burns and his body starts to disintegrate, Merlin steps forward and kisses him. The fire marks Merlin, just as she intended. When Escanor’s disintegration is complete, Meliodas wishes for his friend to rest in peace. In episode 21, Merlin’s true desire might be revealed. She then might revive Arthur and urge him to take control of his chaos magic.
