I learned about the delayed choice phenomena a while ago, it was an experiment with double slit with a beam splitter behind so the entangled photon pair after the split goes to a screen and two photon detectors separately. The strange thing is that the wave pattern is destroyed even when the photon gets to the screen before hitting the detectors.

Since for these two events, there exists a frame of reference according to SR that the photon would hit the detector before hitting the screen. Wouldn't nature resolve things in a way that it performs the measurement on the entangled state pair from all possible frame of reference (so order doesn't matter)? Wouldn't this resolve the weirdness of the delayed choice phenomena?

Sorry for any misconceptions, I am no expert on this. But I am curious.
