This is very Hansel-and-Gretel-looking, though it’s probably a reference to a more specific story that I’m not familiar with.
It is also a bit of a cross-over piece: he’s an animalistic monster, but he’s wearing clothes and he’s going to cook her (with garlic!) before eating her. So now we are veering over towards cannibalism storylines rather than animals devouring people.
But don’t worry, we’ll be back soon.
