This storyline is just bad and everyone around Dante is being an asshole, starting with Maxie.
I don't know, should Dante have held a gun to Lulu's head and threatened to blow her brains out for her to understand that he was in terrible shape? She saw the scars on his back which seem to indicate that he was tortured.
Is DZ planning to return to his role or are they about to recast the role? And if Dante is still being deprogrammed, I think he should just kill Maxie for being such a busy body who thinks she knows better than everyone. He should take Peter out while he's at it.
Sure, Lulu needs her husband and the children need Dante, but Dante needs help. He didn't leave because he wanted to. He left because he had to. Mental health issues are not a joke, but everyone's feelings are more important than Dante's.
These writers need to assess themselves. I get it's a soap, but we've had 2 sexual assault situations, 1 mental health issue situation and they don't seem to care about what they write at all. They're just pushing stories without any sort of forethought.
If Dante comes back, then I will actively root for him to start taking people out.
