The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 6 Spoilers

In episode 5, Mael gradually remembers everything. He is horrified by the atrocities he has committed as Estarossa and feels deep remorse for causing the deaths of countless innocents and other members of the goddess clan. When he wonders who could have done this to him, Gowther steps forward and accepts responsibility. Mael demonstrates his vast power and nearly destroys the Sin of Lust until King intervenes. Gowther asks King to stop, not wanting him to be killed, but King counters by saying that the Sins must protect each other.

Tarmiel and Sariel realize that the Commandment inside their former comrade is consuming him. They warn Mael that he can’t have the Grace of Sun back if he still has the commandment in him. Derieri tells Elizabeth that she has a plan to save Mael. She then instructs Gowther to transmit what she is thinking into the minds of everyone except Mael. After King distracts Mael, Tarmiel and Sariel hold the archangel with all their might, and Derieri beats him up with the Combuster spell.

But when Derieri and Gowther try to extract the Commandment, Mael cries in agony, and a guilt-ridden Tarmiel lets him go. Mael subsequently impales Derieri’s last heart with Sabaki no Yari and absorbs the Commandment of Purity. In episode 6, Mael might emerge after taking in the Fourth Commandment. The fight between him and King, Gowther, and the rest might continue.
