Nanatsu no Taizai Wiki

The Last Stop of A Long Journey「永き旅の終着, Nagaki Tabi no Shūchaku」 is the 306th chapter of the manga, Nanatsu no Taizai.

Short Summary

Following the Demon King’s defeat, all of the lesser demons attacking Liones retreat. The Sins are happy that the Holy War has seemingly ended but also show regret because Elizabeth’s curse has one day left before it manifests due to Meliodas having to destroy the Demon King's power which was the only thing that could save her. However, Meliodas then reveals he gained the power to break the curse back in Purgatory, to Ban's shock as he realizes what it meant. With the help of Merlin he finally destroys the curses and the Sins head back to Liones.

Long Summary

Within the capital of Liones, the battle rages on as a Red Demon appears through a hole in Bartra's quarters, who is being protected by Slader who refuses to allow it to lay a hand on the king. The demon merely cackles as it prepares to attack and the two brace but notice the killing blow has failed to come. They then see the demon has suddenly begun to fly away to their confusion and looking outside, they see that all lesser demons have begun to retreat following their ruler's defeat.

Back in the wasteland that remained of Camelot, Ludociel's astral body has begun to dissolve and he notices that everything has gone quiet and when he asks Mael, who is holding him up, what happens, he tells his brother that its over thanks to the efforts of the Seven Deadly Sins, who had done the impossible. Ludociel finds it too optimistic to saw its truly over just because the Demon King was forced out of Meliodas but claims it to be one small step forward in ending the feud of hate between the Demon Clan and the Goddess Clan.

Hendrickson and Elizabeth are both surprised to hear such words coming from him and he tries to brush it off as delusion but Elizabeth smiles and says she won't forget as he finally dissipates. Escanor commemerates how everything is back as it should be with Meliodas back to normal and Ban having returned but notices the forlorn expressions of King and Diane as they remember the main issue hasn't been resolved.

Elizabeth's curse will go into effect tomorrow and they have lost the only way to break the curse. Diane begins to cry as she explained that Meliodas only tried to absorb the Commandments and become the new Demon King in order to break the curse but in order to defeat his father, he had to destory that power. Elizabeth tries to reassure Diane its fine as she'll simply reincarnate again one day but if Meliodas had become the Demon King, he couldn't exist in Britannia anymore.

Merlin understands Elizabeth's wishes but wonders if she's truly okay with dying again but Meliodas cuts them off by saying he can break the curse to everyone's surprise. He explains that while escaping Purgatory he just so happened to gain enough power to equal his father, despite everyone's belief that he's bluffing until Ban realizes what he means by it.

Meliodas asks that everyone give him and Elizabeth space as he asks Merlin to do the honors to which she uses Curse Discovery, a spell to reveal the true forms of Meliodas and Elizabeth's curses of eternal life and eternal reincarnation. Elizabeth is shocked to see what their curses really are as Meliodas begins to change and his appearance seems to mirror how he appeared when his father possessed him but in his original shape, revealing to have power that equals the Demon King.

He apologizes to Elizabeth that it took him over 3,000 years to fulfill their promise but claims that it will finally end here and now. As he says this, Elizabeth remembers what Meliodas' old personality told her that he felt nothing for her and that their promise was all he had left and once it was fulfilled, their "false love" would finally cease as well. She begins to cry and asks Meliodas that even after the curse is broken, if he will still love her to which he assures her he will until the point where she gets sick of him.

With that he unleashes a sphere of energy onto the curses that destroys them, finally freeing them of their tragic history of death and rebirth. Surprised at how easily the curse was broken after everything they went through, Meliodas claims it to be over but Elizabeth hugs him crying tears of joy and says its only beginning as the two of them, along with the others finally head back to Liones with their journey over at last.

Question Corner

Q333: Raphael-san (From Aichi Prefecture): Mael grew from a child to an adult, but Sariel never grew up?

Nakaba: Each of their bodies have their own unique traits and characteristics. And apparently their growths doesn't necessarily happen like it does in humans either.
