The kidnapper comes, have a talk, negotiate some things, and to prove his good intentions, release the hero and let her go. And when she breaks out, to find out where she is... it turns out she is in the building right in front of her house. Is it Earth All Along, if the issue is not the planet but just a mundane location? I mean, in the cosmic setting earth is "home" and any other alien planet isn't, so this seems a similar thing on a smaller scale.
