He could have faked his death. It shouldn't be too hard for a demon as well versed in magic as he was.

Mael returning to his senses and becoming a genuinely good guy (I very much doubt he's going to go all genocidal on Demons' asses anymore now that he's heard Gowther's side of the story) is really throwing me off. I thought he had all the makings of a final boss.

He also had the makings of a kind of tragic hero.

As for the original Gowther, one possibility for him still being alive is that he cast a spell that made him everyone think he's dead and faked his death with the help of that spell. But it's one thing to fool everyone in the world, and another thing altogether to fool the doll he'd made that should know him better than anyone (the doll Gowther has also been fooled after all, if this is the case). I'm not saying this to deny the possibility completely, I'm just saying something that I think should be said.

You are looking too much into things.

Gowther gave his very own life to end a war that seemed to last forever. His good deed prevented any more casualties and brought peace that lasted for 3000 years. End of story.

It'd be great if it really is just that. But people will still try to think about these things, especially since these stories tend to throw readers for a loop quite often.

We just learned that said good deed wasn't motivated by altruism alone. He used the opportunity to take revenge on Mael. It's possible there's still more to him.

I don't really believe he'll be the final villain myself, but we can't completely rule it out at this point.

Some LQ pics for Ch 283 are out. Looks like we're back to Mel, Ban and Demon King.

^Same. I'm curious as to how they're doing.

Yep, there are indeed a few spoiler pics out, and we're back in Purgatory, all right:

Spoiler for 283:


No summary (or at least a translated one) yet. Hopefully one will pop up soon!

Edit: Okay, short summary is here:

Spoiler for 283:

So Ban finally got his power-up and it seems like he's the trump card. Well, hopefully this isn't a red-herring and they really manage to win. It'd be great if Meliodas' emotions also somehow gained a power-up while inside Purgatory, if that's possible. Just enough that he can win this fight while fighting alongside Ban without looking like a dead weight.

Now all that's left is for Ban to find his Sacred Treasure (unless it's how he got the aforementioned power-up here, since it's possible that his Sacred Treasure is somewhere in Purgatory).

They're up against the strongest being in the manga. I doubt they can win at the moment, but they (namely Ban) can most likely manage to create an opening so they can cross the portal.

Anyway, I hope Ban will kick ass. He's been a sand bag for way too long.

True. Either way, they have to beat him at some point so hopefully they'll be strong enough when the time comes.

So that's what "The Ruler" is. I wonder if Ban can use his ability to reverse the power-ups the Demon King would otherwise get from Ruler. It's at least worth a try, if they come up with the idea, right?

So all they have to do is give the DK a phoenix down

I can't believe it took them that long to figure out what his power is. I mean, come on.

In all fairness, I think it's safe to say that the DK is more than powerful enough to overwhelm Mel's gang even without his magic. Considering that, I personally don't find it strange that 3/5 of a century was spent merely surviving against him, leaving them little breathing room to analyze his techniques....
