The Unnecessary Wedding For Heart.

As we all know, it's been almost eleven years since Mike and Deanna had what she called "her wedding for heart" so that she and Michael could live together before the wedding for show to appease her "unreasonable" mother. The annoying thing about it is not only that it's what Lynn would have done were she in Deanna's shoes. If it were just Lynn's way of fixing history by avenging herself on her mother for telling her hateful, cruel lying lies of hateful cruelty about how she needed to have limits on her behavior, it would be bad enough. What makes it all the worse is that the device is completely unnecessary. After all, having Mira go berserk trying to provide her daughter with a fancy wedding in the hopes that it would make for a good marriage would be sufficient a source of drama to drive the plot forward without taunting the fanbase with some sort of super-crazy meltdown when she'd realized that she'd been tricked and not having a secret to keep wouldn't make the Pattersons look like stooges to a con job.

What should have happened is that Deanna, having told Michael that she couldn't be a good whatever and simply live together, would then move in with her aunt until the big day. Said unseen aunt would be able to provide us with a bit of insight into what was eating Mira that she was so caught up in the process that she'd missed the point; instead of April telling her that Dee and Mike were living in Toronto, not Sin, we'd have Mystery Aunt trying her damnedest to get Mira to meet her daughter halfway instead of messing up by trying to have the wedding she wanted by proxy.

We could also avoid making Mike look like a clueless dick who can't understand why anyone would take anyone else's feelings into consideration. After all, Deanna is at least trying on some level to make Mira happy and thinks that she's doing so. Lynn probably didn't intend it that way but she makes it clear that Mike cannot even begin to understand that anyone who isn't him deserves that consideration; if a thing conflicts with his needs, the idiotic sociopath thinks that he's being enslaved.
