Her very brief scenes with Bruce had no emotional weight to them, and their love scene came out of left field and there was no sexual chemistry between Bale and Cottiard.
Like when Foley died and the camera zoomed in on him, it was like we were supposed to care. But like with Tate, his character was such a dull non entity that there really was no reason to.
Although, imo, Miranda/Talia was far more important than Foley, haha.
Never understood why a 'Deputy Commissioner' was even in TDKR since there was no such title in BB and TDK.
But back to Talia, I understand her and Bruce sleeping was obviously a nod when Talia became pregnant in the comics, but the scene could've been taken out and we only have this working partnership with Bruce and Miranda. It would have hurt Bruce just as much when she betrayed him.
