In episode 3, Meliodas and Ban make their way to the Demon King’s palace along with Wild, Hawk’s older brother. Wild reflects on the irony that he has to go to the Demon King to reach his brother. As their families become the main subject of conversation, Meliodas reveals that he has two younger brothers: Zeldris and Estarossa. This episode sheds light on Zeldris’ history through Meliodas’ perspective. He tells his companions that Zeldris used to look up to him. But Zeldris had his own share of secrets. Long before Meliodas met and fell in love with Elizabeth, Zeldris had found someone to love and protect. Zelda was a vampire, a race that served the demons.
Following Meliodas’ rebellion, Izraf, the vampire king, thought that it was the right time to break the shackles of his masters. However, the vampire uprising was crushed by the Demon King himself. Zeldris was sent to execute all vampires, but he chose to seal them because of his feelings for Zelda. When he returned 3,000 years later, he discovered that the seal had been broken. Later, a local man told Zeldris that the Sins had killed all the vampires.
In Camelot, Escanor assumes the power of the One and uses the Divine Sword Escanor to destroy the Ominous Nebula. He overwhelms Zeldris, impaling him with the Divine Spear Escanor. In episode 4, the Camelot battle might conclude with a decisive victor. Zelda’s ultimate fate might be revealed. Meliodas, Ban, and Wild might finally reach the Demon King’s palace.
