Martou, once dead went to the Father as I'm sure he expected ... probably primed to argue with the Father about the way that silly girl overturned all he, Martou, had done for Chalion, but  quite in keeping with his personality and expectations.

Am I the only one who never thought Martou’s soul was taken up by the Father? I always thought that the death demon took both Dondo AND Martou back to the B*stard’s hell, as was required to satisfy the death magic. What was taken up by the Father was the Curse, pulled through Cazeril, who was then returned to his body by the Daughter. 

As far as Dondo’s irredeemability, he was ready to decapitate Caz in order to save his own cowardly skin. He was irredeemable long before we met him in the flesh.
