In ch. 50, it becomes clear that Elizabeth is not worried about Lydia's elopement on her own account (as far as Darcy is concerned), because she's convinced that Darcy's disgust towards Wickham is so strong that "had Lydia's marriage been concluded on the most honourable terms, it was not to be supposed that Mr. Darcy would connect himself with a family where, to every other objection, would now be added an alliance and relationship of the nearest kind with the man whom he so justly scorned." That isn't made very clear in P&P2, or the other adaptations, IMO.
