I believe that the chapter wiki uses a third-party extension so that we can access Commons. In my experience, this extension is a bit flaky and sometimes causes problems. I don't have access to the code, but I'd say it's trying (and failing) to open a connection to Commons to load the image, and it's waiting until the remote call fails before it serves the page (which explains the lag).
If the problem is on Commons' end, it should hopefully clear itself up, if it's on our end though it might be something for Werdna to have a look at. Cheers, Craig F.
