Exactly! I always wondered how exactly Morgan even knew what became of her daughters or that one of them was being sent to jail and eventually executed for murder. After all, I think it's mentioned that neither of the sides had contact with each other before Morgan and Dahlia met in jail.
And even that is weird, after all, didn't they need proof that Dahlia and Morgan were related? How did they find out? And considering their conversations are (I think?) monitored, are you telling me they recorded the entire conversation talking about how they planned for a spirit to be channeled and kill someone? Or, if it wasn't recorded, what about the background guard, if we assume he is a real person and not a cardboard cut out. Was this whole plan made up during one visit? Or multiple ones? Were they even in the same prison?
Since this is part of the Japanese system, here's the thing about Japanese death sentenced people. They don't know ahead of time when they will get executed. It could be days, weeks or even years after they were originally imprisoned until it happens. How did Morgan know ahead of time that Dahlia was imprisoned and eventually executed? If they were in the same prison, she might have seen Dahlia leave to be executed.
And leaving the letter for Pearl to find is risky, too. What if someone else had found it? They might have moved the letter when seeing it in a hidden place, maybe it has Pearl's name written on it and they put it somewhere to give it to her later? (Or, in Godot's case, should've burned it, but that opens a whole other can of problems with 3-5)
And why exactly did Morgan want this to happen one month after Dahlia was executed? Is there a time frame where you have to wait before being able to channel a spirit? Why was it so important to do this one month later? Why not immediately after the execution?
