Take this scenario...
I have a VM running in production, that VM is replicated hourly.
That VM is accidentally deleted (just go with me here) and I need to recover from a replica.
I start the Restore wizard, I choose Failover to replica, I select my VM, I choose a restore point, then I let the process finish.
Once completed, I then choose Permanent Failover.
Here's where I'm a little confused. Based on what's going on above, I'm pretty sure this would leave me with the replica VM now acting as a replacement VM for the production VM that failed, but this replica VM is now running at my DR site. How would I get this VM back over to my production site after this step? Would I just set up a replication job going the other way then repeat the process? That seems like a bunch of extra work.

You're right, you can perform permanent failover and then configure replication/quick migration job to move this VM back to production. Alternatively, you can start a VM failover operation (not permanent failover) and then select failback to production option to copy this VM back to production. For additional details, please take a look at our User Guide (page 252).
