Re: Alfred Pennyworth in the reboot
Absolutely, I agree with that.
I suppose what you could get out that is the two of them discussing their war - while reflecting on normal life away from the cave. As soldiers do in the trenches.
Alfred has to be the figure on who's been on the outside of war for so long, that he appreciates the things in life. Something that Bruce has no time or real concern for, but still needs reminders on from Alfred.
