Chef’s Note: The main thing to note here is the scandalous possibility that Alfred Pennyworth, the gentlemen’s gentlemen, is not all that.
What kind of respectable butler lacks the ability to make waffles? Furthermore, this flaw is no incidental event – no accident of humidity, chance, or some persnickety griddle. Given that both Tim and Jason agree on this fact means that Alfred Pennyworth has been proudly serving paste-like waffles for years!
I feel like someone should be calling the Daily Planet about this.
Chef’s Note: Beyond this, there is the simple fact that Tim offers Jason breakfast – after all they’ve been through, after everything. Offering and sharing food with people, even the people… especially the people… that you need to work something through with, can be a powerful thing. Jason’s change of posture from crouched-and-ready-to-spring-away to pulling-up-a-chair-and-taking-off-the-hood speaks to this.*
Chef’s Note: Happy National Waffle Day!

Serious kudos, Mr. Rocafort.
