It’s time to get Grimm with an extended visit to the most famous fairy tale prison - and a new take on the witch that locked the damsel in a tower. Donna Jo Napoli's Zel honors its source material and never shies away from the more upsetting components of Rapunzel, but adds complexity and humanity with telling psychological portraits of Zel, Mother, and the obsessed nobleman who gets tangled up in their demonic pact.
Tempers are high and the sibling squabbling is strong - will we make it out alive, or be banished to the desert? Only one way to find out.
