transitions and other troubles

Arriving back home after the journey can be fun. . . .

We are told that Bilbo had trouble returning home after the adventures in The Hobbit, but of course, we don't see anything because it would be anti-climax.

It's interesting when the hero went off to do something in the middle of the story, did it, and got back, basically without incident, and I have to segue into the consequences, with as little dead weight transition as possible.
