A Hansel & Gretel segment done well

While the dialog could've been more fresh and the writing can be a bit clunky, True North does a really good job having Hansel and Gretel into the show and have them meet Regina which is a really clever move. The connection between the two kids in Storybrooke, Maine and the Enchanted Forest was is really good and it's great to see them reunite with their father at the end.

The story is well-paced, the visuals are nice especially the Gingerbread House, the characters are good including the witch Hansel and Gretel encounter, the music is more atmospheric this time around, and the scenes with Hansel and Gretel and the Evil Queen were solid. The scenery is also gorgeous and the direction is effective.

Overall, another good episode and a segment done well.
