Yeah because Talia was so going to find out Bane disobeyed her orders when he believes they're all going to die in 11 minutes.
If that wasn't going to happen I bet he would have obeyed what ever she told him. It's more the fact that she told Bane what to do in the first place that implies she is used to giving commands like this.
