Did Colonel Brandon Hear What was Said?

In the movie Colonel Brandon is walking rather happily up to Barton Cottage, flowers in hand, to visit Marianne after she has sprained her ankle. Then a shot to Sir John, and he says "Poor Brandon, you will none of you think of him now..." then back to Colonel Brandon, who is approaching the door, with a rather hesitant expression on his face, quite a change from a few seconds earlier when he had been smiling.....then he walks in the cottage, looking rather downcast....did he hear what Sir John had said? He never recovers after that point of course....it all goes downhill from there when he learns of Willoughby, and notices Marianne's coldness towards him. Anyway, I always thought he heard what was said....and thus the reason for his sudden change in demeanor. Did anyone else see it that way?
