Three Men and a Little Lady

Corrected entry: When Peter is stranded in the countryside after his mini broke down on the way back from the Pileforth academy, Elspeth Lomax gives him a lift. Peter explains to Elspeth he has to stop the wedding, he must get there before it starts in order to do this. Why does Elspeth take a short cut and seem so frantic about getting there fast, surely if she was on her way to the wedding as a guest, she would have arrived before the wedding started anyway. Stopping to pick up peter could only have cost her a couple of minutes at the most.

Correction: Maybe she was already running late, or maybe she was never going to attend the ceremony, just the reception.
