GENERAL HOSPITAL Dante Comes Home; But He’s Tortured In More Ways Than One

Courtesy/ABC

Lante fans got their long-awaited reunion, of sorts, on Friday’s episode of General Hospital which also leaves viewers with a major cliffhanger as to what has happened to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) since his time away from his wife, family and friends.

In story, Lulu (Emme Rylan) goes into panic mode when it appears someone is breaking into her home.  When Dante walks through the door her shock turns to happiness.  She runs into his arms and they kiss.  Dante feel guilty for not being there for his wife, when she needed him most – after she was attacked by Ryan – and apologizes for leaving her and not being there to protect her.  Then, Dante gets a call from Frisco, who congratulates Dante on a job well done in terms of his assignment to bring down Raj and his undercover work.

After escaping Turkey with his father, Sonny (Maurice Benard), and heading home to Lulu, something seems off.  While they have a happy reunion, complete with making love, there is clearly a sadness in Dante’s eyes.  We get a glimpse as to why, when in bed with Lulu, the camera pans to his back and we see multiple scars on his back, which would indicate he may have been beaten while being held in captivity during his mission.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Zamprogna reveals what’s to come this week on all-new episodes of GH, which will illustrate how troubled Dante has become: “He’s trying to hide how disturbed he, in fact, is from his experience (abroad).  He’s so happy to be with his family. He missed them. He wants to be with them.  But as happy as he is to be back, there is something wrong that needs to be addressed.”

In the Sneak Peek for Monday’s episode, General Hospital released a clip, where Dante is seen and heard repeating, “I will complete the mission” and then appears to have shot Lulu.  But is this all in his head?

As viewers know, Zamprogna is back for a short run on the show, and not back full-time.  This week, also saw the talented and popular actor receiving another Daytime Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category.

So, what have you thought of Dante’s return thus far? Do you think he is suffering from PTSD … or something else? Are you happy Dom received an Emmy nod for his performances in 2018? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.   First, watch the sneak peek for tomorrow’s GH.

PTSD

I really think it’s time for both Dante and Lulu to just go away somewhere. Nothing against the actress, but the character of Lulu, as written lately is just too annoying for words.

What is it with Gh!!?? When an actor leaves, they do their big farewell story only to have that performer come back in a matter of weeks for limited run for some dull story, only to leave again..What ever happen when our beloved character is written off the show and they do come back, but over a year or more later, giving us entertainment value when they return since we have not seen them for a long extended period.

As mentioned above, it could be PTSD, or brain washing, especially as he kept repeating that one thing over and over. Whatever it is, the supposition is useless, since he’s only going to be back on GH for two weeks.

I don’t think he is a good actor and will not miss his leaving. He never displays any emotion.

Dante’s leaving will not be a great loss in my opinion. He shows no emotion.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero On Olivia and Ned’s Kiss During COVID-19: “For Those Asking, That Kiss Was Filmed Before We Broke …”

General Hospital had its triumphant return on Monday with all-new episodes, it’s first since the coronavirus pandemic shut production down.

Since its airing, many viewers took to social media questioning the kiss in the episode between the characters of Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), when protocols had been put in to place by the ABC daytime drama series, and that it going to have to come up with more creative ways to illustrate intimate moments during the editing of upcoming episodes.

Throughout the day, several soap pundits including Carolyn Hinsey let viewers know that some of the scenes in this week’s GH episodes were actually filmed months ago before the production break including the kissing moment.

On Tuesday, long-running series cast member, Lisa LoCicero took to Twitter to clarify that as well to the fans, tweeting” Happy to be back with new shows! To those asking, the kiss was filmed before we broke..”

What was nice was that it seems with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) back on the canvas, ans trouble brewing in the marriage of Ned and Olivia, that LoCicero may have some meaty material coming her way.

So, glad to hear from Lisa about the kiss in the episode? Do you hope she will be featured more in story coming up? Comment below.

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

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.
