In episode 2, Ban and Meliodas converse after an emotional reunion. Meliodas is exasperated after learning that Ban came to Purgatory without any plans to get both of them out of there. He explains to his friend and subordinate that there are two types of monsters in Purgatory: the foreigners and the natives. The foreigners are the ones who come from other worlds and turn to dust when they are killed. On the other hand, the natives have physical forms. They hunt a native monster, during which Ban learns that Meliodas can’t use his legendary strength because he has been separated from his body.

What Ban sees is a manifestation of Meliodas’ emotions. They decide that if they want to get out of Purgatory, they have to go to Meliodas’ father, the Demon King himself. On their path, they run into a mysterious creature, who turns out to be Hawk’s older brother, Wild. Meliodas and Ban happily share their stories about Hawk. The episode ends as Wild joins the other two in their journey.

Elsewhere, the fight between Ludociel (in Margaret’s body) and Zeldris intensifies, with the latter casting a powerful spell called Ominous Nebula. Created by the Demon King, the spell rapidly heals the caster and nullifies magic attacks from enemies, making the caster impervious to physical or magical damage. After an argument breaks out between Escanor and Ludociel, Merlin convinces the Sin of Pride to help the leader of the Four Archangels of the Goddess Clan. In episode 3, Meliodas might reencounter his father. Ludociel might use Escanor’s The One ability to defeat Zeldris.
