I thought that it was incredibly weird for Deliora to visit the grave of someone during his introduction, I ended up rationalising that as Silver having control over his body at that time, but the actuality of circumstances has revealed that Deliora was never revived and the control Silver had over his body was never relinquished. Was Tartarus fooled as well believing that Deliora was resurrected or did Mard Geer find some way to force Silver and his Devil Slaying abilities to work for his cause? Whatever the case I am incredibly interested to see the reason Silver has for deceiving his son and forcing Gray to realise just how much he doesn’t want to throw his life away.
Even with Gray surpassing his own limits, all his efforts in trying to stop Deliora and end the nightmare from the past from recurring has had no effect. With Deliora mastering the art of Devil Slaying, he has attained the ability to nullify any ice attack Gray can throw at him and now with Deliora so close to getting his revenge, what can Gray do to turn the situation around?
Memories of a tragedy resurface to cast the wounds of despair asunder and with it the agony endured once again embraces its host. Gray, the tragedies of his life and face of his weakness, Deliora embodies it all. Unable to do anything in the past when his parents died and when his master sacrificed herself to seal away his darkness, the agony of inability washes over him once again and reminds him of a time he lost so much. Fury overcomes him and with the monster of his nightmares standing before him, Gray throws it all away relinquishing the control over his suffering. With darkness entrapping Gray once again, who will be the one to seal away his “darkness” this time?
