The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 8 Spoilers

In episode 7, Diane is stunned by King’s new form and wonders if he’s still the King she has known. Reading her mind, he assures her he is. Mael, possessed by the four Commandments, casts Sparling Gem of Love, which King easily counters with True Form Eight: Pollen Garden. Their battle doesn’t last long. Even with the four Commandments’ combined corruption, Mael is no match for the Fairy King in his true form. But King doesn’t kill the archangel, resolutely stating that seeking revenge will only increase hatred.

As the commandments’ power starts to take Mael’s body apart, Gowther reaches inside Mael and asks him to come back. In response, Mael asks Gowther why he (Gowther) chose him to balance Meliodas when there were others among the Goddesses who could have also served the purpose. Gowther reveals to Mael that his creator, Magician Gowther, picked Mael for the task because he had previously murdered a demoness named Glariza, who was Magician Gowther’s lover. Eventually, Gowther’s words get through to Mael, and he returns to the mortal world.

Although Mael has no more interest in participating in the war between the goddesses and the demons, Elizabeth and Gowther ask him to accompany them to Camelot and help them end the Holy War. In Camelot, Cusack and Chandler meld into each other to become the Original Demon. In Purgatory, Meliodas, Ban, and Wild confront the Demon King himself. In episode 8, King, Elizabeth, and others might arrive to help Escanor and Merlin in their battle against the Original Demon. Meliodas might begin fighting his father with Ban and Wild’s help.
