Re: Batman Begins v.s The Dark Knight Rises
What makes you think it was fear? That wasn't fear in Bane's eyes of Talia, but love and respect. What kind of love is up to the viewer, but out respect for this woman he clearly loved in some form, he did not shoot Batman in front of her. But he still would shoot Batman once she left, as he makes much of his own decisions. It may have been her plan for the "slow knife," but nearly everything Bane did was his own meticulous planning. They didn't exactly have Skype chats once the city collapsed or probably for the several years leading up to the film.
This is such a weak argument that because he is partnered with a woman that he is weak. I will not even touch on the implications of that.
