How did Owl get the 2nd mortal blade? He doesn't have it when you talk to him before the "First Boss"
I reckon he went to face Genichiro while you were fighting the 2 bosses, and ultimately ended up victorious, in the end.
Prolly from Genichiro?
That's what the last scene is with Owl coming over to Isshin's corpse after you kill him. He is picking up the black Mortal Blade right then off of Isshin. Isshin is the one who has the black Mortal Blade to begin with, but during a normal playthrough Genichiro "borrows it".
He’s carrying Genichiro’s head in the cutscene the camera blocks most of it though. He didn’t sit around doing nothing while you were fighting he went and killed Genichiro
I don't know what I did differently during my Shura playthrough but the requirements seem to be a little more than retrieving The Lotus of the Palace and The Shelter Stone. After I got them Ashina castle was not locked out. This is presumably because of the alternative ways you can get to them? When I did it I did not go through Senpou Temple area completely yet, so I did not do the Inner Sanctum part (Folding Screen Monkeys/Mortal Blade). I am going to assume that getting the Mortal Blade is actually a requirement, which isn't stated otherwise in the description. I was not able to get Owl to appear until after I went through that section and got it.
Yes, the mortal blade is a requirement to have the castle locked. They should update that.
killing the folding screen monkeys is required, getting the mortal blade is not
SPOILERS I really have a big issue with this ending I just wanted to obey the Iron Code I didn’t want to kill owl. Not only that but I didn’t know when making the choice that I would be locked from the rest of the game. I also want to know, why do we not get Owls sword that Wolf picks up in the cutscene?

Personally, this is the true NG ending tbh, a brief tutorial of a sort before you get into the full game in NG+. It’s like the whole NG, Wolf is actually having a nightmare about what he COULD become if he stays on the Iron Code’s path
