Everything Will be Frozen「すべてが凍り付く, Subete ga Kooritsuku」 is the 299th chapter of the manga, Nanatsu no Taizai.
While Mael knees Zeldris back, Merlin proclaims she only has 3 more minutes left. Mael tries convincing Zeldris to stop fighting as they were once brothers and should be able to come to an understanding. Zeldris scoffs and claims the former him, Estarossa, would've laughed at that before manifesting a blade of darkness on his hilt. Mael responds by forming two spinning Killing Saucer on his hands. The two keep exchanging blows before Merlin exclaims she now has two minutes left. After firing his Killing Saucer as beams, Mael notes that Zeldris seems unusually hurried, much different from his calm and collected self, and questions if he wants to win the Holy War so badly, he's willing to let Meliodas becole Demon King. He further asks if Zeldris truly wants his one and only brother to become a being like that. Zeldris tells him to say what he wants before suddenly appearing behind Mael. Slashing, Zeldris yells that both he and Meliodas wanted this.
As Mael questions what this terrifying drive is, Zeldris shouts at him to stay out his way before slashing Mael across the stomach, forcing the Archangel to fall. Zeldris then jumps up and unleashes a flurry of slashes as Merlin declares there's only one minute left. Hawk panics and claims they'll be made into swiss cheese as Elizabeth and Ludociel defend Merlin by blocking the slashes with Ark. King then uses Eighth Form: Pollen Garden to defend them against Zeldris. He tells Zeldris to give up as he has no chance, inwardly noting he's reaching his limit. Angered, Zeldris repeatedly bashes against Pollen Garden to no avail. Mael questions why Zeldris is going so far and what's driving him to do this before calling it unfortunate, slashing Zeldris across the back and causing him to fall. Getting up, a wheezing Zeldris recalls Meliodas's promise to release Gelda from her seal after he becomes Demon King. Merlin thanks everyone for getting her enough time and fully activates Chrono Coffin.
Hawk questions if it really worked and Hendrickson points out how the bird and rubble near the cocoon have been frozen in place. Zeldris then thinks about Gelda and lets out a tear as he falls to the ground. The Sins then all cheer that the Holy War is over. Merlin falls to her knees and as Escanor helps her up, she admits that freezing Commandments in time takes its toll on her and will get the Captain to treat her to good ale afterwards. Elizabeth thanks Hendrickson for what he did for Gilthunder and Margaret and reveals she knows because King was watching through Chastiefol the entire time. Hawk then eats a pill and turns into his Tyrant Dragon form. Flying around the cocoon, Hawk yells at Meliodas to wake up already since everyone has been through so much for him and points out how there's only a day left until Elizabeth's curse goes into effect. Elizabeth wishes for Meliodas to be safe, only for Hawk to then notice a tear in the cocoon and nothing inside. Everyone then feels a chill and Elizabeth senses a presence behind her, asking if it's Meliodas. Laughing, a weak Zeldris says he'll be holding him to his promise and calls him Demon King, looking at an adult Meliodas.
