The leader of the Mortal Sins is less than pleased with recent events, and as such her unruly subordinates have to be punished. Meanwhile, Lucifer continues heading towards her destination.
This episode is pretty much Belial visiting each of the Mortal Sins in their own Circles of Hell and administering some king of punishment to them – naturally, the punishments happen to be thematically appropriate.
Back to the present day, Lucifer happens to be one step behind Belial as she descends further into Hell. She sees the Demon Lords suffering their punishments, but they refuse her help (well, most of them do).
Belial inherited the power of the Byrnedal family because she liked their dilapidated castle; it was holding on to its vanity. It’s the perfect place for the Demon Lord of Vanity.
Leviathan’s fight against Astaroth pretty much just ends up with them jumping on each other.
Lucifer continues moving forward, whilst Leviathan and Astaroth’s fight turns into nothing more than naked bickering.
Belial discovers that Maria has angel’s blood courtesy of Lucifer. Belial believes that Lucifer intend to use that to get back to Heaven.
Lucifer arrives in Cocytus, where she sees that Leviathan and Astaroth have got themselves frozen. Leviathan asks for help, but Lucifer tells her to get out of it herself. Leviathan is able to manipulate water, I wonder if that extends to ice as well?
Anyway, one final challenge presents itself to Lucifer before she can face Belial.
Lucifer defeats the giants, but at the cost of her remaining power. She falls unconscious afterwards, leaving her at the mercy of Belial.
Things don’t really look good for Lucifer now, but we’ll have to wait until next time to see what her fate is.
Well, seeing the punishment that at least one of the Demon Lords had to endure was not comfortable viewing… poor Beelzebub. I was also somewhat disappointed that Leviathan’s fight against Astaroth went the way it did – though I guess I should have expected that. Oh well.
On a more positive note, we got to learn a little more about Belial and her connection to the Byrnedale family. We also get an idea of what Lucifer did to Maria during their first meeting, though how Lucifer intends to make use of that is yet to be seen.
This episode wasn’t the greatest, but I am looking forward to the next one just to see how Lucifer overcomes the dire situation she finds herself in.
