Meliodas agrees to help Elizabeth, revealing how his business has been travelling from place to place to acquire information about the rest of the Seven Deadly Sins as well and letting her join him. The two, along with Hawk, soon stop over at the Bernia Village, a village famed for their delicious Bernia ale and its primary source of income. However, a Holy Knight Gilthunder has planted his sword in the center of the town, stopping all water sources. Despite the villagers’ futile efforts, Meliodas easily removes the object and is hailed as a saviour of the Bernia Village. Gilthunder, wanting to confirm whether the removal of his sword was an accident or not, throws a spear imbued with his power towards the town, which is reflected back in the same direction by Meliodas, destroying Fort Solgales, Gilthunder’s current location, and missing his head by centimetres.
