They got a boy and made a potion out of him. Moments later, the Horned Witch drinks the potion and is seen being immune to fire for a brief moment. After the Horned witch is captured, she and Redhead witch distracts the town by burning a building. Redhead Witch and Edward got the last  girl they needed for the ritual whilst Muriel confronted Gretel and killed Jackson. Later, Muriel appears at Hansel & Gretel's home. She informs them of their mother before stabbing Hansel and abducting Gretel. At the Blood Moon Sabbath, she plans to kill the twelve children and Gretel so she and all the other evil witches could have the ability to be immune to sunlight but her plan fails as Mina and Hansel stop her.
