Returning home mid mission for no reason

It was suggested I use drone deploy because it has terrain awareness and I was flying an area with steep hills surrounding a flat area. When I plan the mission it shows me all the lines it will fly. When the drone takes off half the mission flight lines disappear. I let it fly then it comes back to home but the battery is still around 80% and there is plenty to fly the rest of the mission. I swapped the battery anyways then resumed the mission. When it flew back to the place it left off it takes oblique photos when I set the camera angle to nadir in the mission settings.

Of course this was in an area of no cell signal and about two hours from the office so I could T troubleshoot on the fly.

Any ideas what’s going on here?
