One giant battle commences. Dahlia and Dubs are defeated and everyone agrees they couldn’t have pulled this off themselves, and someone else must have helped them. The Supreme Deity reveals herself to the Sins and the holy knights back in Liones, where she claims that they have to be destroyed for ending the holy war.
