Wow you made a good call on this even though the motive wasn't what you thought it was.
Though perhaps the writers wanted to hint (but didn't hint strongly enough) that Trevor was batting for both teams. That would explain how a gardener managed to make friends with Rodney and get the money to dress so sharply. Perhaps this is also the reason that Rodney was eager to go to England: he would be with both Trevor and his wife, and the scandal wouldn't come out in Canada. While the episode exhonerated Rodney of complicity, he could have actually been in on it.
If this was the case, I wish the writers had laid a few more hints/suggestions to enable the audience to draw those sorts of conclusions.
As it is, I think the writers were using the cut off remark as another red herring - so viewers would think that Rodney didn't want William investigating his bedroom because he would find it was never used, or something like that. This would turn our suspicions to Rodney, and perhaps Trevor -- and away from the bride.
The three-way would have made Rodney's rush to go to England more understandable, though. As it is, viewers were given to understand that Rodney made huge sacrifices for his family. How could he suddenly leave them to live in England?
