If dying in Limbo brings you back to reality, then why doesn't Cobb just kill Mal in the limbo state instead of planting the idea in her head that it wasn't real and death was the only way out?



Similarly, you could also ask why Mal didn't simply shoot Cobb, and then commit suicide herself? Surely that would have been easier and considerably less traumatic than the elaborate, cruel, nearly-psychotic plan she hatched to force Cobb to suicide . . . which didn't work anyway. Of course, the entire plot hinges on the existence and the failure of Mal's nutty plan. So, we had better accept what happened, whatever the explanation, or the is no movie!

After 50 years limbo became Mal's reality. that's why Cobb had to plant the idea in her mind that make her realize that was not the real world and death was the only way to go back to reality. If he hadn't made the inception and killed her she would suddenly found herself in a completely different place(world) and in a young body.
