Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 5 synopsis
The episode starts with Mael who was in pain after he reverted back from his Estarossa form. King asked why Estarossa who is from Demon Clan is having angelica wings, to which Gowther replies that this is the true form of him and Estarossa of demon clan never existed.
A flashback of Mael is shown when he was young and used to admire his big brother Arch Angel Ludociel and asked Ludociel that will he ever able to become stronger like Ludociel, to which Ludociel replied that one day Mael shall surpass even him.
Later in the flashback, it’s shown how Mael became stronger and received his grace Sunshine. One day 3000 years ago, he saw Meliodas and Elizabeth together and was heartbroken as he loved Elizabeth. At the same time when he was way watching Meliodas and Elizabeth, Gowther spell took effect and existence of Mael was erased and a new being Estarossa of Demon Clan came into existence.
In the present time when Mael was still in pain due to his two contradicting memories of being both Estarossa and Mael. Another flashback is shown when Mael after being turned into Estarossa believed that he is Estarossa and has killed strongest Arch Angel Mael. After being turned into a demon, Mael’s grace Sunshine left his body. When demon king heard that Estarossa has killed Mael, Demon King granted Estarossa the Commandment of Love.
In present time Mael was still in pain and filled with guilt and regret about how after turned into a demon he killed his own people, the people of Goddess clan. Gowther said to Mael that he manipulated his memories and he’ll take complete responsibility.
Listening this Mael got angry and attacked Gowther and crushed his hand. Gowther told Mael that he is a doll created by real Gowther. Hearing this Mael was filled with more rage. Mael asked Gowther that why only he was chosen for this, Gowther explained that since Meliodas who was the strongest in Demon Clan after The demon king, his betraying the demon clan and siding with goddess clan created a power shift and this started the Holy War so to balance this the strongest of Goddess clan should also be transferred to Demon clan thus creating balance.
Gowther further explained that after losing Mael, goddess clan was forced to use Coffin of Darkness which sealed the whole demon clan in exchange for Goddesses bodies.
And after listening to this Mael was about to kill Gowther but Mael got punched by King’s Chastiefol Guardian form. After being punched, Mael hidden in the dust and smoke said its good that Gowther has friends and he can make Gowther suffer by killing his friends. Mael said that since Gowther is a doll and his body won’t feel any pain so he should make his heart suffer by killing his friends.
A battle broke between King and Mael but Mael was strong as he was holding off the Chastiefol’s first form with ease. Sariel told Tarmiel that they must help King to defeat Mael and then save him as Mael who was eroded by darkness isn’t the Mael they used to know.
Elizabeth who was also present there at that time asked Derieri about how to help save Mael. Derieri said that she’ll help in saving Mael. She told everyone the idea to save Mael, first King will distract Mael and then Sariel and Tarmiel will hold off Mael, meanwhile, Derieri will keep on hitting Mael with her Combo Star skill which doubles the intensity of her every next punch while Growther with his magic searches for the commandments stored inside Mael’s body.
But Tarmiel left his hold as he couldn’t see Mael getting punched. This gave Mael and opening since his one hand was freed and so he attacked Derieri and took her commandment out of her and absorbed it himself and injured Derieri fell down where Elizabeth used healing magic on Derieri.
At the end of the episode Derieri was reminiscing a 3000 year old memory when Meliodas betrayed the Demon Clan and she and Monspeet were going to battle with the Stigma. When Derieri saw Monspeet albeit it was only a memory she remembered how Monspeet always cared for her but she never paid attention and now he is dead and Derieri herself is also at the verge of death.
