Where is Dante on General Hospital and is he returning?
If General Hospital fans are getting a bit impatient wondering if and when Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is ever returning, may we suggest not holding one’s breath?
This week his wife Lulu (Emme Rylan) hosted Dante’s husband at her place, and they had a heart to talk about his MIA son.
Sonny (Maurice Benard) shot cop Dante at point blank range once, but apparently that’s water under the bridge in this family.
When he asks about her missing spouse, she informs him that even though he’s working undercover for the WSB, he needs to go deeper. As in where the sun don’t shine, we’re talking Moletown, so deep undercover that he may not even know who or where he is!
Dante took his abrupt leave last year when he virtually disappeared on his friends and family. He was sent on a mission by the infamous World Security Bureau to search for the goon who once tried to kill Lulu. Fun Fact: Former WSB head Sean Donely (John Reilly) was mentioned this week on GH!
In the meantime there is a killer on the loose in Port Charles, and Sonny wants her to know that he has his men watching her house. Uh, oh, what could go wrong?
Especially since Lulu is hot on the trail of the killer. She tells him that Dante knows all is ok back at home, not to worry. Still, Sonny sees that Lulu needs Dante and tells her to tell her spouse to get back home where he belongs.
Dante’s return doesn’t look imminent or in the cards. Zamprogna left GH to pursue other projects and there is no indication that the show will recast the role of Dante.
With the killer on the loose is it possible that Lulu will be the next victim? Unfortunately it makes sense since Dante is gone, and doesn’t look to be coming back. Stay tuned though, you never what will happen in the soapy world of daytime drama!
General Hospital airs weekdays during the day on ABC.
