One of the challenges we faced in adapting "Hansel and Gretel" into our own little
repertoire of crime stories was firstly finding a crime that could live up to the morbidity
of the original. I mean let's face it, cannibalism is a pretty high bar to reach... that is,
unless Hansel and Gretel found themselves in the brutal black market of the Grimm
world where human organs are sold as medicinal elixirs to the highest bidder. And these
medical practices are definitely not "cruelty free."

We were going for a "Primal Fear" element to this episode, where a seemingly meek and mild-
mannered character turned out to be capable of horrific violence. We also wanted to address
how Monroe's growing partnership with Nick (a Grimm) would be received by the rest of the
creature community. When they viewed him as a traitor, how would he respond? Whom would
he side with, Nick or the part of his life he worked tirelessly to escape from?
