Meet the Family - Mick O'Brien
Mick is Abby's dad, an imposing and stubborn self-made man, the kind of person who neither gives nor accepts excuses. Mick is a successful contractor/developer who works long hours, and his workaholism finally caused his wife, Megan, to walk out on him and their family. Still, Mick has no apologies for the past. As far as he's concerned, he was merely providing for his family the best way he could, and he doesn't see the toll his emotional unavailability has taken on his adult children. When daughter Abby points out his failings, it's the beginning of self-knowledge for this old school patriarch, who is finally realizing that he has some burned bridges to rebuild with his family.
