Context 1: "I remember pa's hand in mine. Grasping and shaking for what felt like a thousand years...before he finally let go. His spirit released, allowing me brief communion before returning to the well."
Text was taken from comic "Seven to Eternity". Here's a link where you can find the page with this text. As you'll see on the following pages there's no well with water. So I think that "returning to the well" can be some kind of metaphor or idiom. I have tried to search some information about this phrase and found this. But there is described only "go to the well with". I don't know if the meaning of this term ("go to the well") fits the meaning of my expression ("returning to the well").
And context 2: "We take solace that we return him to the well, true to himself". A link to the page here.
I can suggest that "the well" may be some magic limbo in the world of this comic. But I'm not sure.
