A Lante shake-up and break-up? That is where things appear to be heading for long-suffering and long-loving duo, Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu Spencer Falconeri (Emme Rylan) after Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital!
After Lulu arrives back in Port Charles, she heads home to Dante and their child, Rocco, where things have gone off the rails! First, Dante has had sex with Valerie (Brytni Sarpi). And of course, Lulu left town with Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) to save her brother Lucky (Jonathan Jackson), and her parents Luke (Anthony Geary) and Laura ( Genie Francis), and lied to Dante about the whole thing to protect her family, because the kidnapper said no cops should be involved.
Before Lulu can explain what happened and why she was with Dillon, Dante has already ripped into his wife for shacking up with Mr. Quartermaine! After venomous words are hurled at the unsuspecting Lulu, she is completely caught off guard. Then the conversation goes deep where Lante discusses Lulu’s need for her father’s approval and need for Spencer adventure!
Finally, Lulu assures and pleads with Dante that he can trust her, and that she did not have sex with Dillon. She says: “Baby you can trust me, just like I trust you.” To which Dante replied with tears in his eyes of guilt, “Except, you can’t.”
Major kudos to General Hospital stalwarts Dominic Zamprogna and Emme Rylan who delivered emotional and powerful performances in material that was able to showcase their acting talents. Kudos also to @laughingpenguin who created this image in the post!
Now going into the rest of this week and next, do you think Dante will admit he had sex with Valerie? Do you think he will lie to Lulu? Is this the end of Lante? Are you digging the chemistry between Dante and Valerie and rooting for them to become a bonafide couple instead? What did you think of the performances of Dominic and Emme? Weigh-in below!
