That's logical but very unlikely to happen in any story ... ok, maybe in some comedies ...
Elliot didn't originally think the encounter with the first griffin was noteworthy so what he told her was probably whatever was off the top of his head then forgotten later on. Tedd had to remind him of it, and Elliot's reaction "She was asking for directions!" ...well if I was in Elliot's position at the time I'd have suggested she go to the library and use one of the computers to check Google Maps.
Also, any word about the main forums? Seems like the 1.1 demon completely ate it.
