This past week there were a lot of great guest stars who appeared on some of my favorite shows. Let’s start with actors Nicholas Lea and Eion Bailey as well as actress Emma Caulfield all appearing in last Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time. Nicholas appeared as the father of Hansel and Gretel in both the fairytale and Storybrooke worlds while Eion was the stranger who drove into town on a motorcycle. Meanwhile, Emma was the Blind Witch going after Hansel and Gretel.
