Where Love is Found「愛の在り処 Ai no Arika」 is the twelfth episode of Season 2 of the The Seven Deadly Sins anime.


After a brief encounter with Meliodas, the Ten Commandments begin their attack on Britannia. A resurrected Elaine appears before Ban.


Galand complains and demands that Melascula find Meliodas, he is cut off by Zeldris as he tells him and the other demons that their goal is the domination of Britannia and commands the others to move out in groups of two (or more) in order to recover their magic power as quickly as possible and to use whatever methods they deem necessary to eradicate the other four races. Fraudrin then asks if this was a declaration of war against Meliodas which he replies saying that this isn't war but an extermination.

Still angered by his defeat and the thought of Meliodas being "beyond" him, Galand tries to claim to have been able to defeat Meliodas any time he wanted. However, before he can finish his sentence he is stopped and warned about lying by Drole, questioning if he had forgotten that the Ten Commandments would incur their own curses on themselves if they break their own laws. Galand then lowers his head in response but still curses Meliodas in his mind. The Ten Commandments then disperse; Zeldris and Estarossa, however, remain behind.

Meliodas plans to defeat the Commandments one at a time rather than all at once. Everyone completes their training except for Elizabeth, who fails to make the dead seed grow. Jenna and Zaneri, who has an unrequited love for Meliodas, discuss how Elizabeth is the reincarnation of Liz, Meliodas’ deceased lover, and how Zaneri sabotaged Elizabeth’s training to try and separate Meliodas from her so he would never realize who she really is. Meliodas announces they still need to find Escanor, the Lion's Sin of Pride, who is claimed to be even stronger than Meliodas. The resurrection of the dead is revealed to be the work of Melascula, the Commandment of Faith, who is resurrecting and corrupting dead souls to form an army. One of the souls she summons is Elaine, who also returns to life corrupted, and she immediately starts searching for Ban. King senses Elaine’s revival and rushes to the forest, refusing Meliodas’ help as he still does not trust him. As Ban and Jericho bury Zhivago they are attacked by a corpse, which Ban easily destroys. Elaine appears and reunites with Ban and they kiss passionately.
