Warren Bauer is a fictional character on the ABC daytime drama, General Hospital, played by Bradley Cole. He is the father of Kiefer Bauer.

Warren first appears on March 17, 2010, when Lucky Spencer questions him in order to establish a timeline of the night of Kristina Davis's first attack. Being a lawyer, Warren is resistant and dismissive, but eventually agrees. After a bit of questioning, Mac comes to them and says Mayor Floyd feels the Bauers have shown good faith by coming in and their interview is over. The Bauers are sympathetic to Kristina, but feel since her father is a mob boss, anyone could have attacked her.

Warren reappears on April 2, where he speaks with Jasper "Jax" Jacks and Skye Quartermaine, and subsequently speaks to Kiefer about Lucky and Dante's ongoing investigation into Kristina's attack. Warren bluntly states that he thinks Kiefer never should have gotten involved with Kristina and encourages his son to talk to her. Lucky and Dante, having already deduced that Kiefer was the one who attacked Kristina, later question Warren and his wife, Melinda, over the attack, but they are not much help.

On April 6, Warren meets with Jax on business, and discovers from Olivia Falconeri that Kiefer has been hit by a car and brought to the hospital. Upon arriving, Melinda and Warren find Lucky questioning Kiefer. Warren pulls Lucky out of the room and criticizes him for trying to question Kiefer in his condition, and Lucky informs him that Kristina has been attacked again and that she has finally named Kiefer as her assailant both times. Kiefer dies from his injuries, and Warren immediately gives a press conference, offering a reward for information on their son's killer.

Warren discovers from Mac Scorpio that Alexis was the one who hit Kiefer and that it was an accident. Outraged, Warren convinces himself that Alexis did it on purpose and swears revenge on both Alexis and Kristina. Later, Warren harasses an already-overwrought Kristina until Alexis and Jax arrive and force him out of the room.

Subsequently, Warren posts a memorial page online, painting Kiefer as an ideal person and student and also adding a video, where he gives his own scenario; he states that Alexis deliberately ran down Kiefer, and also claims that it was Ethan Lovett (whom Kristina had originally accused of beating her to protect Kiefer from her father's wrath) who attacked Kristina all along, and that Alexis and Sonny had convinced Kristina to lie and tell everyone that Kiefer was the one who attacked her because of their friendship with Luke Spencer, Ethan's father. He later confronts Kristina in her own home and, in an attempt to get her to change her statement, fuels her grief and guilt by repeatedly reminding her that Kiefer loved her. When Alexis arrives home, she criticizes Warren for his actions, and his demeanor immediately changes; Warren calls Kristina a pathological liar and Alexis a child killer, and vows that he will make Alexis pay for what she did to Kiefer.

Warren subsequently confronts Mac at the police station and demands to know why Alexis is still running around free. When Alexis arrives, Warren demands to know why she did not stop and refuses to believe her story. Alexis calmly asks Warren to stop making everyone miserable, but Warren stops her and promises to send her to prison. Alexis' oldest daughter, Sam McCall, arrives to see Alexis arguing with Warren. Warren furiously continues to deny Kiefer's abuse of Kristina, and angrily declares that he will not stop until the whole world knows that Alexis is a murderer and that Kristina is nothing but a "promiscuous little tramp" who deserved to get beat up, at which point Sam loses her temper and punches him in the face.

Lucky is roped into the confrontation as Warren and Sam exchanged heated words. Warren points out the evidence they had originally found against Ethan and accuses both Lucky and the Davis women of framing Kiefer. Dismissing any and all evidence against Kiefer, Warren leaves, but not before telling Alexis that she belongs in prison and he will see to it personally that she is sent there.

On May 13, Alexis goes to court for Kiefer's hit-and-run. Much to Warren's outrage, the jury rules in Alexis' favor, and she gets off with a suspended sentence and community service. Warren subsequently files a wrongful death suit, vowing to take Alexis for every penny she has. On May 18, Nikolas Cassadine confronts Warren and attempts to get him to back down. Despite Nik's best efforts, Warren refuses to drop the case.

Proceeding these events, however, Warren begins to unravel and begins to call Claire Walsh's office twice a day for a month and using whatever tactic he can think of to try and pressure her into reopening Kristina's abuse investigation, to no avail.[1] Warren later approaches Kristina, Alexis, Molly, and Sonny at the country club to inform Alexis that he is going through with the civil suit and that her court date is coming up soon. Warren continues to heckle Kristina and Alexis, and just as he begins to get really aggressive, Sonny gets in his face and warns him to back off. Asserting that abusers learn their habits from others, Sonny openly accuses Warren of having abused Kiefer himself. Though Warren denies it, it is obvious from the look on his face that Sonny is correct. Nonetheless, Warren leaves without causing any more trouble, vowing that Kiefer will get justice.

Subsequently, on July 21, Warren arrives at General Hospital and demands Kristina's medical records from Epiphany Johnson, but she refuses to give them to him. Just as Warren begins to criticize Epiphany for helping to protect Sonny's "little lying slut of a daughter", Olivia enters and calls him out. After the argument, Warren threatens to sue Epiphany and the hospital for obstruction of justice unless he gets Kristina's medical records by the end of the day. After he leaves the room, Epiphany throws his court order in the trash.

Coincidentally, Kristina is in the hospital with a sprained ankle, and Warren corners her in a room shortly after the hospital is locked down due to Franco kidnapping the newborn Aiden Cassadine. Warren demands that Kristina sign a release for her medical records, but Kristina openly refuses and berates him for abusing Kiefer. Warren snaps and attempts to slap Kristina, but just as he is about to do so, Michael, having heard Warren screaming at Kristina, rushes to Kristina's rescue.

In the ensuing skirmish, Michael quickly overpowers Warren and brutally strangles him to near-death, but is stopped from doing so by Lucky, Ethan, Maya, Mac, and Steve. Warren claims that the attack was unprovoked and demands that Lucky arrest Michael, but Lucky and Mac immediately deduce what really happened and cleverly make it impossible for Warren to press charges against Michael. Subsequently, Warren suffers a psychotic break and induces a shootout, critically wounding Mac and Ethan before turning his attention to Michael and Kristina. Before he can pull the trigger, however, Mac garners enough strength to shoot him in the back. Warren quickly succumbs to his wounds, but not before telling Kristina, "This is all your fault."

Reaction

"the budding relationship between reformed mercenary Shawn Butler (Sean Blakemore) and resident bitch goddess Carly Corinthos Jacks (Laura Wright) proved to be one of the few rays of sunlight peeking through the darkness over Port Chuck."

—Daytime Confidential Top 10 Couples[20]

Many fans and critics alike became became invested in the potential Shawn and Carly (Laura Wright). Then head writer, Robert Guza, Jr. began toying with the idea and it looked as if he was about to go that way, even promoting an angle where Shawn and Carly fall for one another, with Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) standing by.[21] However, due to Shawn's lack of storyline, and him only being used of a "prop" for Carly, many fans were against the pairing. But, what some fans like was that the story would be something new, and different from who the characters Carly was usually paired with. When asked about the potential pairing, Wright revealed that she liked that the writers were playing them as the "Ross and Rachel" of daytime.[22] When GH was appointed a new head writer, many believed the new blood, Garin Wolf would try something new; and Wolf appeared to be going in the direction.[23] Wolf went ahead with the couple's first kiss on October 27, 2011 and caught the attention of many media outlets including, Entertainment Weekly.[23] The pairing came in at #2 on Daytime Confidential's list of the Best Couples of 2011, saying that in the midst of rest of the stories being told at the time, which caused the ratings to dwindle, the potential pairing was the only one that showed promise.[20]

Yahoo! TV also praised the potential pairing citing chemistry between Blakemore and Wright as "undeniable"[24] and they could potentially become a fan favorite couple; the article also said that Shawn was better than most of the men Carly had been previously paired with, most of whom were mobsters, with the exception of her estranged husband, Jax.[24] The article also discusses the show's need for an interracial relationship to bring some diversity to the series. It mentions the short lived pairing of Ethan Lovett (Nathan Parsons) and Maya Ward (Annie Ilonzeh) as having great potential before the writers broke up the pairing.[24]

Theo Hoffman first appeared in Port Charles when he checked into General Hospital, complaining about a number of vague symptoms. Theo was certain that he suffered from a serious illness that would prove to be fatal if left untreated. The doctors ran a battery of tests, but determined that the old curmudgeon was fit and healthy.

Theo demanded to be seen by more competent doctors, so Dr. Robin Scorpio quickly took the case. Theo took an instant liking to Robin when he learned that she had been educated in Paris. However, Theo continued to remain at odds with the other doctors on staff, including Robin's estranged husband, Patrick Drake. Things reached a crisis point when Steve Webber and Patrick Drake decided that it was time to discharge Theo. Theo threatened to sue the hospital and several of the doctors, so Robin quickly stepped in to defuse the situation.

Robin gently explained that Theo suffered from a psychological condition called hypochondria and recommended that he see a therapist. Surprisingly, Theo was grateful that Robin had been the only doctor to properly diagnose him, so he agreed to leave. However, he insisted on following through with the lawsuit. Theo headed straight to Diane Miller's law firm, where he was promptly hired. Diane had been in desperate need of someone to oversee a wrongful death lawsuit that had been filed against mobster Sonny Corinthos' fiancée, Brenda Barrett, and his newfound son, Dante Falconeri. Brenda had shot a man named Anton Banovic, who had been sent by an international crime lord named the Balkan to kidnap Brenda. The lawsuit claimed that Detective Dante Falconeri, Sonny's son, had given Brenda preferential treatment after the shooting.

What no one realized was that Theo Hoffman was the Balkan and he had arranged for the lawsuit to be filed. Theo had decided to infiltrate Port Charles's society to get closer to Brenda, so that he could arrange to kidnap her. Theo was after Brenda because in 2007 she had shot and killed his son, Aleksander Janáček. Brenda and Aleksander had been involved in a brief affair, but she had ended things when she had realized that Aleksander was an abusive criminal with strong ties to the mob. Aleksander stalked Brenda to New York City in an attempt to reconcile, but Brenda had refused to consider it. Brenda lived in fear of Aleksander, so she reached out to the New York City police for protection. Young rookie Dante Falconeri had been one of the police officers assigned to guard the world famous supermodel.

During that time, Brenda had learned that she was pregnant with Aleksander's child. Dante quickly fell in love with Brenda, who only viewed Dante as a friend. One night, during a walk, Aleksander approached the couple. Aleksander grabbed Brenda as he demanded that she talk to him. Dante stepped in, and a brief struggle ensued. Brenda was horrified as it became clear that Aleksander intended to kill Dante, so when Aleksander's gun fell to the ground, Brenda picked it up and shot Aleksander. Aleksander collapsed to the ground and died. Dante decided to cover up the death to spare Brenda further trauma, so he arranged to dispose of the body in a swamp. Brenda left New York City and Dante Falconeri soon afterwards, but not before Dante signed some custody papers claiming to be the father of her child and relinquishing all rights to the baby.

Theo was determined to make Brenda pay for Aleksander's death. Brenda's wedding day presented the perfect opportunity for Theo to snatch Brenda. Brenda's close friend and the director of Brenda's pet charity, the Alliance to Save Exploited Children, Suzanne Stanwyck, had been secretly revealed to be Theo Hoffman's wife. Suzanne was just as eager as her husband was to hold Brenda accountable for their son's death.

After Theo kidnapped Brenda, he learned that Brenda had been pregnant and that his wife had known. Suzanne explained that she had not told him about the baby because she had not wanted to add to his sorrow so soon after the loss of their son, Aleksander. Theo seemed satisfied with the answer until Brenda revealed that she had fallen ill during the seventh month of her pregnancy while on a trip to Africa. Theo was stunned to learn that Suzanne had been at Brenda's side the entire time and that Suzanne had claimed that Brenda's son had been stillborn during Brenda's illness. Theo was certain that Suzanne had spirited the baby away, so that Theo would not know his grandson.

Theo confronted his wife with his suspicions, but Suzanne steadfastly insisted that the baby had died. Theo did not believe his wife because he knew that she had always resented how he had raised Aleksander. Suzanne conceded that she hated that Theo had groomed their son to follow in his footsteps, but she was adamant that their grandson had been stillborn. Suzanne also insisted that she wanted Brenda to answer for killing Aleksander.

On March 31, 2011, Theo is tricked into believing that he is going to meet his grandson but is killed by Suzanne.
