'Once Upon a Time' S3E19 title: "A Curious Thing" what could it mean?

On Feb. 15 Carter Matt shares episode 19 of "Once Upon a Time" is called "A Curious Thing." This has lead to a lot of speculation as to what this could possibly mean, especially since there are several new characters that are going to appear in the second half of the show.

When looking through information that could possibly mean anything, a look into the Wizard of Oz text reveals this little bit of information;

"The Silver Shoes … have wonderful powers. And one of the most curious things about them is that they can carry you to any place in the world in three steps, and each step will be made in the wink of an eye. All you have to do is to knock the heels together three times and command the shoes to carry you wherever you wish to go.”

These words were spoken in chapter 23 of the book by Glinda the Good Witch. Depending on who the recipient of the silver shoes is, does this possibly mean that that is the responsible party of returning Storybrooke to the map? It seems more than likely since the passage specifically states that the shoes will take you anywhere you would like to go. There's no place like home, right? And what could be more homey than the safe haven that the fairytale characters have made of Storybrooke where their worst enemy was Regina. And only Regina.
