How does Barsad die in the novel, if it mentions his death because i haven't gotten to that part yet.

Im wondering why he would be balancing atop some planks to stay away from the men that came to rescue him? Perhaps this was his first initiation into LOS.
That scene is a part of his training with the LOS, AFTER he was rescued from the pit by Ra's.

The novel does not show Barsad's death. In the movie we are led to believe Foley killed him.

The minority of people who complain about "plot holes" should just read the Novelization and then maybe they will be satisfied. :problem:

I think that bane seems to feel that he's indebted to ra's al ghul for
rescuing him from the prison and obviously he's in love with talia
so it's not like he's a pawn but he deliberately chooses to help talia because himelf feels that it's the right thing to do. of course it isn't but it's nice to see the novelization expand on his motives.

Why do a lot of people assume Bane was in love with Talia? It seemed more like sibling love to me.

There's definitely a lot of differing opinions about this. Some think he was in love with her. Others think he was more like a big brother or father-figure. Of course, I have my own opinion on the matter. ;)
