In my opinion, Snape's redemption arc included him caring about innocent people's deaths- regardless of whether he liked him or not. During the hilltop scene, I feel, like Dumbledore, that Snape was really only concerned about Lily's wellbeing and no-one else's because Lily was the only person that Snape felt mattered. But the "For him?!" scene in Dumbledore's office, I think, shows that Snape's character had grown in a postive way: the fact that an innocent person was set to die mattered to him- 'liking' the person (e.g Harry) had nothing to do with whether they deserved to die or not in Snape's mind.

Just my opinion, of course.
