Emiko found out the truth that it was Dante who had Kazumi killed, and wanted her to embrace/lead the Ninth Circle and killed Dante in revenge.
As noted by Oliver, if Kazumi was still alive today, she would become completely disgusted not only by every immoral action Emiko had committed all the years, including her indirect role in her father, Robert's death, but also disgusted by the person she became, as Kazumi had raised her daughter to be become a good individual, not a cold-hearted psychopath.
