Well, the woodcutter had had enough with the woman. She was cast out of the house and the woodcutter, Hansel, and Gretel lived happily ever after. They may have had to ration food a bit more but they all were content and happy.

What about the breadcrumb trail? What about the witch? This story had no moral and the conflict was weak. Well, you can take it as a victory, but this is a bad ending.
