The Return is a Document in the Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration DLC Blood Ties. It belongs to the Lord Croft's Journals set and contains the musings of Lara's father, mostly about the funeral of his wife Amelia.

This document is located in the family crypt and can easily be overlooked. It is in the left wall alcove of the passage leading into the crypt.

This is where it all started... our family obsession. Well, now it's time for me to complete the work.

I expected a sort of crushing finality to grip me when we returned to the manor, to lay Amelia to rest. Indeed, once the last of my funereal duties were performed, I fully believed that I would crumple to the ground next to her and expire, not from grief, but succumbing to the terrible exhaustion of the last few weeks.

Instead, as the mausoleum stone slid into place, I felt... a sort of peace and energy, one that I confess caught me entirely off guard. This was not the terminus of our story, and I was fool to think so. Her body may be gone, bit her spirit still resides here, in the manor, in me, in Lara. Her soul is forever twined with mine, and death is just... a momentary interruption. I walked out of that cold quiet into the sunlight that burned my eyes, and I have ever been more sure.

Death is not the end, and there is work yet to do.
