So is Jack actually Hansel. I mean that would make some sense. Gretel said that he was traumatized both physically and emotionally and he uses candy to send his death card. Maybe he is seeking revenge on the witches for killing his sister who was trying to join them. The other question is how did Gothel know that Ivy would be the next victim. Did she find that box of candy on her doorstep or something? That scene did not make much sense.
I’m assuming he is. We came up with the fact that Hansel and Jack both come from the name John, so it makes sense.
Gothel found the bag with the candy in the lobby when she came up to see Ivy. That’s how she knew she was going to be next.
