Killing Terry at that point would have been perfectly acceptable as a story development. And Mickey, in kind, acknowledges that if not for all the ways he was a terrible father, maybe somewhere under there he might have made it work.

It works in the abstract: daddy issues is, after all, the default story for every television character in history. But the script gives it no specificity: Terry is a homophobe, but the show misses an opportunity to read his past actions into the record, and to fully understand the depth of the damage he did to his son.
