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.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Is Named Police Commissioner In Port Charles; But They Say It’s Temporary

In a cool move, the powers-that-be at ABC’s General Hospital, had Laura (Genie Francis), the now mayor of Port Charles, name none other than former commish, Mac Scorpio (John J, York) as interim police commissioner while Jordan (Brian Nicole Henry) recovers from her kidney transplant and needs some time to recover from her medical ordeal.

Now while the show is making sure in story it is stated that Mac is the temporary person in charge of the PCPD, for many longtime fans of the series, they remember fondly when Mac held down the position for years.

In the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, York said on the surprise story turn: “I was thrilled when Frank Valentini (EP, GH) told me!” He added that he was advised there was great story coming up, and added, “That’s fantastic! I can’t wait to see what is going on.  However long it lasts, I’ll take whatever I can get and I’m really looking forward to being back in there.  There is a whole nee squad. a whole new group of people. I don’t even know who these cops are anymore!”

Shortly after being named commissioner on Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Mac is already getting wind of some criminal activities and things that seem way off; from Lulu’s (Emme Rylan) new assignment with The Intruder, to his brother Robert (Tristan Rogers), being pushed out of the WSB and forced to retire, and much more.   Can Mac get the police department to solve some crimes ..> for once?

So, what do you think of John J. York getting to be back in action at the PCPD? Do you hope somehow the story turns and remains in the position even after Jordan is well, or are you hoping Jordan can get back into the swing of things fast and return to her job?
