The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 7 Spoilers

In episode 6, after Mael takes in the Commandment of Purity, he is encased in a bright cocoon of light. Suddenly, dark rays of light start to rain down from the cocoon. Tarmiel pleads to his brother to stop, but one of the dark rays hits him, seemingly killing him and Sariel. When Mael finally comes out of the cocoon, a terrified Hawk reads the archangel’s power level above 200,000.

Mael uses the Commandment of Love and casts Jiai no Kougyoku, nullifying the abilities of all of his opponents, but Gowther casts Sense Opener to free King, Elizabeth, and Diane of the effects of Mael’s spell. The three Sins conclude that a collaborative attack might prove to be effective against the overpowered archangel. King casts the sixth form of Chastiefol, Yggdra Cloth, to cover himself in armor and proceeds to charge at Mael.

Gowther uses the Kaleidoscope to create several copies of King to confuse Mael about which one is the real King, while Diane does her Drole’s Dance to enhance King’s abilities. This attack initially seems successful, but then Mael casts Shinjitsu no Kane with the Truth Commandment to destroy Gowther’s illusions. Later in the battle, when he tries to use Jiai no Kougyoku again, Oslo intercepts and sacrifices himself to protect his king.

Diane uses her War Hammer Gideon to nullify Mael’s spells by dispersing them into the ground. But as she warns everyone, the second time she does so, the Heaven’s Theatre shatters. Elizabeth prevents Diane from falling while Hawk catches an unconscious Gowther. King manages to overcome Mael’s nullifying curses and transforms into a fairy with fully grown wings. In episode 7, Mael and King’s fight might continue until one of them emerges as a clear victor.
