I have a hard time liking a guy who springs a restraining order against a non-abusive parent like this. Especially for a situation he agreed to when they married (even if he didn't get how hard it would be. The divorce, yeah, I'm with him there. Even wanting custody (though actually if you think about it logically, people are going to go after the kid regardless of who he lives with and Donna's got a better chance of protecting him than a guy who can get taken out by a clock.) Was there any thought given to the pain for the kid if his mother's taken away from him?
I can't help but hope he had a second to appreciate the irony as he went over the cliff.
