We've explored a great deal how Sam, Merry, and Pippin would be impacted by Frodo's decision to leave Middle Earth. But what of the others who must live on after he's gone? How would Frodo's realization that the Shire must now be seen as part of the world be made manifest? And what if there were blood heirs--almost--for Frodo?
