As the Golem begins destroying the forest King battles to protect the new Sacred Tree. Gerheade, the traditional servant of all past fairy kings, refuses to acknowledge Ban as king of the Fairies. She is surprised when Ban agrees with her, as he never wanted to be king. But, rather than let him leave the forest, she attacks him, knowing that he would risk himself to protect Elaine’s body and traps him, intending to use him as the new Fountain of Youth. King fails to stop the Golem and is injured while the Sacred Tree is destroyed for a second time. Gerheade prevents King from attacking the Golem while the other fairies rush to fight it, sacrificing themselves so King can escape, for as long as King is alive the forest will always grow again. King, however, refuses to flee, gaining strength from his desire to protect the forest, fairies, and even Ban he succeeds in transforming Chastiefol into its True Spirit Spear form and destroys the Golem. Back in Camelot as they recover from destroying the Golem they are attacked by Galand, one of the Ten Commandments, who is at least several times stronger than Meliodas.
