The image was a big help in cementing the theory. I think, however, the half-mat always references Ozu - it is not till the very end of the series that Watashi sees the "other half" of Ozu.

You're correct, it wasn't. Rosa attempted to open her letter before dinner, but was convinced not to by Maria. At dinner, the kids were shooed out before they could listen in. I believe the viewer is...

I'm not sure if this is exactly Marion's argument, but one thing has been bugging me about:

There are no more than 17 people on the island. This applies to all games.
