Use of conditional with Au cas ou

I understand the use of the conditional but why is it not acceptable to have "arriverait" instead of "serait"?

I think she means this one. I had the same doubt, came here looking for answers:

Laisse la porte ouverte au cas où elle ________ en avance.

Leave the door unlocked in case she is early.
