‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Dante Back Short Term – Dumps Lulu or Dies at Ryan’s Hand?

General Hospital spoilers reveal Dominic Zamprogna returns as Dante Falconeri – but not for long. It seems the fan-favorite character is back with an agenda and it could be to set the stage for a long-term (if not permanent) exit for Dante.

As Emme Rylan just renewed her contract with the ABC soap, she needs to be able to move on with her life and can’t do so with an absent husband. So could Dante Falconeri come back to dump his wife – or will he come back only to meet a violent end at the hands of the local serial killer?

General Hospital Spoilers – Dominic Zamprogna Back on Set

GH spoilers straight from the Dante actor himself reveal that Dominic Zamprogna is back on set filming new episodes. The actor took to social media earlier today to post a selfie from inside his temporary dressing room.

Longtime fans know that Zamprogna made his debut on as Dante Falconeri on June 22, 2009. Then he left last summer with a last episode on June 28, 2018. After that, he made a one-day-only return November 12, 2018 for a special Sonny-centric episode. So what brings him back this time?

General Hospital: How Long Will Dante Falconeri Stick Around?

First of all, there’s no confirmation yet that Dante Falconeri will be in Port Charles. While he’s shooting GH scenes, he might never set foot back in the city. As he’s working for the WSB, he might show up for scenes in some foreign locale with Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).

But if he does make it back to Port Chuck, it seems likely that there may be some finality when he exits this time. General Hospital spoilers are vague on Dom’s comeback. What is know is that it will be more than one episode, but not a permanent return.

GH Spoilers: Dante Back To Stop Ryan Chamberlain?

General Hospital spoilers hint Lulu Spencer needs her husband at her side after her brutal attack. Serial killer Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) has Dante’s wife on his radar. She’s only alive now because he was able to manipulate her into ID’ing Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) as her attacker.

Soon after her attack, her family was desperate to locate Dante to be there for his wife’s recovery. However, he was deep undercover for the WSB. So perhaps Anna does find Dante and sends him home. If so, maybe he’ll be the one to crack the case and nail Ryan. But could it cost him his life?

Will Ryan Kill Dante on General Hospital?

GH spoilers show that Ryan’s plot to frame Franco isn’t holding water like he hoped. Already the PCPD chief has doubts as does Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner). Drew Cain (Billy Miller) is 100% behind Franco as is Ava Jerome (Maura West). Even Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) seems uncertain. And if Lulu recovers her memories, no doubt Ryan Chamberlain will come for her to shut her up for good.

If Dante’s in town, it’s likely he would risk his life to save Lulu’s, and that could put him in the homicidal path of serial killer Ryan. Certainly, Dante has a vested interest in making sure the right man pays for what happened to Lulu. If Dante Falconeri is close to cracking the case, he might be the next victim promised by General Hospital spoilers. Dominic Zamprogna’s character could be back to save the day.

General Hospital Spoilers: Dumped or Dead – And When Is Dante’s First Air Date

So with Dominic Zamprogna back for just a flash in the pan, what’s the deal? GH spoilers promise that Lulu Spencer can’t be left husband-less forever. Soaps are about romance so that means Dante Falconeri needs to stick around, get recast, or die. Certainly, with a serial killer on the loose, the latter is possible. Alternately, he could decide he has to dedicate his life to law enforcement and split up with Lulu.

So, when will we see Dante Falconeri? The actual date of Dominic Zamprogna’s first return episode has not been revealed. General Hospital films four to six weeks in advance. So, that means it’s likely we will see Dante back some time in March. But when Dante returns, what happens when he gets there, and how they’ll explain his exit again are yet to be confirmed. Watch GH weekdays on ABC to see what’s ahead for Dominic Zamprogna as Dante Falconeri.
