Why Billy wasnt tested?


I guess the Wizard got tired of testing or did I miss something?

reply

The test was to let the 7 Deadly Sins try to persuade him to grab that blue gem. Since they'd escaped, the Wizard had no real way to test them. Plus he was at death's door, knocking rather loudly at that, and it was Billy or bust.

He told Billy that how someone misuse the power in the past and then he just gave it away without any test... make sense

reply

I mean, you're not wrong but what choice did he have? I thought he made it clear that choosing Billy was an act of desperation.

reply


He'd been watching Billy for a while from the sound of it, so he must've seen something there

I did like the fact that Billy himself admitted not to being pure of heart

Lucky for everyone involved, then, that he thought beer tasted like "actual puke"

reply

The way I saw it, the Wizard knew Billy was right when he did not even want the power to begin with

Good point

Personally I was sold on him when he let his mom off the hook gently and without any bitterness
