Meliodas realizes that the power of the curse is on par with the power of the Demon King. He wonders why the curse is regenerating, and Escanor asks why only the curse of the princess has returned. Elizabeth reveals that his curse was cast upon him by the Supreme Deity. Bet Elizabeth’s curse is a different case, and Ban comments that it means the Demon King hasn’t kicked the bucket yet.
