Brian is feeling the pressure, there is the slight risk of a prison sentence hanging over his head should the police push for the dangerous driving charge, there is some interesting gossip mongering going on by Gwen Riley too who is very quick to spill the beans to Mary about the mess Brian has got himself into.
