Once these characters are in the woods working on accomplishing their goals, they each face challenges that set them back. For example, Red is stopped by the wolf and later eaten, Jack is attacked by the giant, Cinderella is internally struggling with how to tell the prince who she truly is, and the Baker and his wife lose the cow.
