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

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.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: J.T. Holds Sharon, Nikki & Victoria Hostage With Dire Consequences For All

While The Young and the Restless left us with a major cliffhanger on Wednesday, and was on yesterday, or today due to the March Madness NCAA College Basketball tournament games, the show provided a sneak clip of a little more of what happened after J.T. passes out from a massive headache, and Sharon (Sharon Case), Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) are feeling the effects of the gas pipe leak leaving all of them passed-out and in peril.

But, what did you think of J.T.’s return thus far … and his trapping the women in the cabin and wanting payback for burying him alive? And … how J.T. revealed how he survived via the Genoa City sewage system?

Clearly, J.T. has something major and medically wrong with him.  Did he get a brain tumor after Nikki clobbered him to the head with a crowbar and from being buried at Chancellor Park?  Could J.T have had a medical issue no one knew about that could have been causing his abusive behavior toward Victoria and Victor and the Newman clan?  So many questions to be answered.

Outside the cabin is Billy(Jason Thompson) a busybody Phyllis (Gina Tognoni), and Victor (Eric Braeden) on his way too! Will they all save the day?

No matter what; Thad Luckinbill (J.T.) delivered another great performance as he finally comes face-to-face with the women that put him six feet under.  When J.T. is on the screen  … everyone takes notice.

Watch the sneak peek clip for next week’s Y&R, and let us know what you thought of Wednesday’s riveting scenes and what you think is wrong with J.T? Comment below

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’ As Ava Learns The Devastating Truth About Ryan

Last week on key episodes of General Hospital, the truth was finally out that Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) was masquerading as his twin brother, Dr. Kevin Collins, and that Ava Jerome (Maura West) was an unsuspecting victim in all of this.  As the week began, Ryan and Ava had gone over the bridge, but Jason (Steve Burton) was able to save Ava and pull her back to the bridge, and that set the stage for a powerhouse series of performances by West.

On the bridge with Laura (Genie Francis), who is trying to make Ava comprehend the harsh realization that she has been with a serial killer this entire time, and not the real Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), Ava doesn’t believe what Laura is attempting to tell her.  She believes that Kevin had a mental breakdown.  Laura explains to Ava that Kevin is at General Hospital, while Ryan has been posing as him.  In Ava’s version of the situation, she thinks the switcheroo happened in the last 48 hours when Ryan wanted to whisk her away to be married.  Laura then tells Ava that Ryan switched places with Kevin months ago, and she has never been with Kevin.

It is a horrifying reality for Ava to grapple with as she insists that Kevin loves her.  However, moment by moment, Ava can no longer deny that harsh truth that is right in front of her.  She had sex with her daughter Kiki’s murderer the night she was killed, and she has been sleeping with the wrong man this entire time.

In heartbreaking scenes, Maura, along with another wonderful performance by GH icon, Genie Francis, illustrated the raw pain and devastation of a woman who has been so blindsided by love, violated, and deceived all at the same time.  The scene where Laura holds Ava on the bridge as she collapses with anguish was soap gold.  But, never underestimate Ava Jerome!  You know she will get her payback.

In another episode, a now drunken Ava heads to the GH to see Kevin for herself, but finds Franco (Roger Howarth).  First, she blames Franco, then he makes her understand that it was Ryan who murdered people and deceived everyone.  He was just helping the PCPD snuff out the serial killer.   She tells Franco that Ryan made her feel like a goddess and that he worshipped her and helped her in her time of need following Kiki’s death.  Ava tells Franco that she hopes Ryan’s still alive so she can kill him herself!

And still in another moment, Ava runs into the real Kevin in the hospital hallway.  Ava loses her grip and slaps him in the face accusing him of killing her daughter.  Scott (Kin Shriner) pulls her off Kevin, and tries to get her to understand that Kevin was in surgery at GH when she was with Ryan in Niagara Falls.

Sitting down with Ava, Kevin apologizes for what Ryan did to her and everyone else.  Kevin thinks she needs to speak with a therapist, but not him and he will recommend someone.  Later, alone in the hospital corridor, Ava sees a poster of Kevin Collins and rips it to shreds as Scott comes by to calm her down. She sinks to the floor in sorrow over Kiki’s death, and how she ended up falling for Ryan.

Scene after scene, moment after moment, you can’t get better than West.  Ava is a delicious complex character, who has been so unlucky at love, is so flawed, and at times so revenge-filled, and yet in the hands of the oh-so-skilled and talented Maura West, she has humanized Ava, so that we can’t help root for her to get back on her feet after she falls so far down, so we can witness what trouble she will stir up next.   All of this to say: Michael Fairman TV names GH’s Maura West the ‘Power Performance of the Week”.

So, what did you think about of Maura’s performances on  GH? Did Ava finding out the truth about Ryan live up to everything you hoped it would be? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
