She offers Bruce the chance to become young again but he is initially reluctant.

* OffingTheOffspring: After the Near Apocalypse of '09, Ra's al Ghul's body had been so badly damaged that even the Lazarus Pit was unable to repair it. In order to survive, he then used a computer to transfer his own consciousness onto Talia's body, in effect overwriting her mind and killing her. Although not directly stated, it is implied that he may have done this against her will.
