‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Dante Struck by PTSD or Mind Control – What’s the Secret Mission?

General Hospital spoilers show Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) is not the same guy he used to be. For months he proved his loyalty to the WSB working undercover for Raj. So, Dante may not know how to live life as a civilian anymore. GH spoilers confirm he saw and did unspeakable things in Turkey.

Dante’s severe back scars indicate he endured physical torture on General Hospital. Those nightmares indicate psychological tampering as well. Certainly, that’s a difficult ordeal to come back from and it’s still with him, say GH spoilers. Here’s what’s coming for the handful of episodes that Dominic has left in this short return arc on the ABC soap.

General Hospital Spoilers: Dante Falconeri’s Dangerous Mission

GH spoilers recall Dante Falconeri joined the WSB so he could infiltrate Raj’s cartel organization and take him down. He did this because Raj tried to kill Lulu Spencer years ago. Certainly, that’s reason enough for him to want justice. But, the mission didn’t go as planned. Dante Falconeri went rogue from the spy organization.

To get the job done he had to convince Raj that he turned bad. However, Raj didn’t trust him at first. So, he locked the ex-PCPD cop up and tortured him. Clearly, it still affects Dante. He did undercover before but this was totally different. Things happened to the eldest Corinthos kid that he may never shake say General Hospital spoilers.

GH Spoilers: Dante Suffering From PTSD?

General Hospital spoilers suggest Dante Falconeri may be suffering from PTSD. Clearly, he is not the same man who left Port Charles months ago. He endured and did horrible things in order to gain Raj’s trust. Now, he is home but not comfortable in his own skin.

Certainly, the last several months weigh heavy on him. Just because he’s not in Turkey and Raj is dead doesn’t mean he’s not haunted. So, if Dante is suffering from PTSD, he will need help. Surely, he should seek therapy or it will only get worse say GH spoilers.

Someone Is Controlling Dante

General Hospital spoilers wonder whether Dante Falconeri is under some sort of mind control. Certainly, PTSD is a factor. However, the DVX (or another villain) may control his mind. In the clip below, he repeats the mantra to “complete the mission” robotically. Also, the WSB was delving into shady memory and mind experiments.

Remember, it just came out that Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) was experimented on against her will. Now, on General Hospital, Alex’s memories are implanted in Anna’s brain. So, Dante Falconeri would not be the first person whose brain the bureau tinkered with – if the WSB did this.

Also, GH spoilers remind that Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) once programmed “Jason Morgan” (then-Billy Miller) to work for her. She ordered him to free Cesar Faison (Anders Hove) and kill Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco). So, it’s plausible that Dante could be under the control of DVX, WSB, or some dark Cassadine force.

Dante A Threat To His Family On GH?

On General Hospital, Dante Falconeri acts like a stand up guy and family man. Certainly, he still is at heart. However, such trauma may affect how he interacts with his family and friends. Viewers can’t help but wonder if he poses a threat to them. Of course, he would never intentionally hurt someone he loves.

But if Dante’s mind is not his own, it may be out of his hands. He could easily hurt Lulu Spencer or one of the kids if his mind isn’t right. GH spoilers promise limited episodes left for for Dominic Zamprogna. So, be sure to watch ABC weekdays to see how the rest of Dante’s time plays out and where his mind goes next.
