Expressing hurts hurt feelings to the person that hurt you is a good thing. The fact that the daughter expressed this to dad shows they share a loving relationship.
No, not always. For example, ToxicSis insisted on trying to "express hurt/offended feelings" to me (which was actually her attempt to lay into me disguised as such), claiming she couldn't be in my wedding otherwise (I actually only included her since Mom and YoungerSis were included; she would've been the only one left out). Knowing her SS-ness, I refused to play so she tried to go through DH (then-DF). There is no way possible that this showed any type of loving relationship. What it proved is ToxicSis is the epitome of a Female Dog (after years of toxic behavior). ToxicSis wasn't trying to fix anything. The only "fixing" with ToxicSis is you listen to her viewpoint and agree with her, period; she's never wrong (in her mind). That's definitely not a loving relationship.
Whoa, I'm sorry you have had that unpleasantness but this thread is about a private convo we are not privy to and moreover, that the stepmom annoyed by it was not privy to. Even the stepmom has not said there were any threats or emotional blackmail. Nor did stepmom even indicate any demand whatsoever. Your situation, while sad, is not analagous at all.
