Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

Photo: JPI

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.

I’m so glad that GH is back and they were great. First episode match the last episode seamlessly and unlike the BB their wasn’t any awkward bulging eye scenes and Ned and Olivia kissed and neither acted like the other had the cooties. But as far as Dante being the great surprise can’t miss first scene sorry to Burst your bubble Frank V, but that was easy to guess, I would of been more surprise if Taggert pupped up alive, that would of been more surprising but With Olivia crying a river in last Fridays episode it was clearly obvious… Read more »

These episodes were filmed before the pandemic obviously. You can’t have people kissing, sitting in a courtroom, and standing next to each other anymore. The new episodes won’t air for two weeks. The only new part was the Dante stuff which was obviously inserted, and he was ALONE. P.S. would HAVE, not would OF. There is no such term as would of, should of or could of.

As I said in the other thread, these scenes looked to me like they were late additions to the episode, as they obviously weren’t a direct continuation from the storylines we last saw in May before the Cheetoplague hiatus. Reminiscent of the 5 second scene of Duke Lavery in the clinic in Switzerland, only not to be seen again until several months later. So we know that Dante is “back”, but don’t be surprised if we don’t see him again for a few weeks until the storylines already written 6 months ago have played out on screen. Unless one of… Read more »

Valentini said in an interview that the audience will be blown away in the first few seconds when GH returns. Why do I continue to fall for this spin masters high jinks! I should be blown away by the return of Dante? Come on! First, fans knew he was coming back, secondly, him and Lulu are a horrible couple! Blown away would have been Duke alive or the return of Frisco Jones!

the most tragic thing going on ???? Anna … Ms. Finola Hughes… languishing in dead on arrival w/Finn. wanting Duke alive for a surprise would have rocked shook to the core

Timmm,
Iam with you! Dante is such a sad sack. Wish he’d take Lulu on a very long second honeymoon and forget to come back. Doubt if that could cheer him up

Patrick, well said! Maybe it’s Lulu-hoop that puts me off of Dante, because I used to like him with Julie B .and I loved his little enactment of the gangsta when mom and dad came to visit. I also hope he gets home in time to see his grandpa one last time. He and Mike were always good together.

A Devil must admit I preferred the original Lulu Spencer myself. She actually seemed like the actual offspring of Luke & Laura, and definitely was a better pairing with Dante. Emme tries her best, but I’d easily trade a half dozen souls of the damned to have the “real” Lulu back.

Mixed feeling for his return..The early years Dante’s storylines were good and he played them very well but a few years before his departure, his character became boring due to lack of storylines for him and his acting suffer because of it…I hope they give something good to show his true talents.

Yuk. Another Corinthos ass-kisser. I think if someone voluntarily leaves a soap to “stretch their acting wings” they should stay gone!! That goes for the likes of Steve Burton, too.
