Why is it that everybody is freaked out about Derek screen time. He is not the only with little screentime, and he had lot of screen time the first half of the season.
If people would pay attention to the story more rather than whether or not their favorite character is getting enough screentime, they would realize that Shonda and the writers are exploring Meredith's desire to become a mother, just like the writers explored Derek's desire to be Chief last season.
The only problem is that both Derek's storyline in season 6 and Meredith storyline this season is that they lacks depth. But otherwise Derek little screen time has to do with the fact that his function ths season is to support Meredith with her struggle to get a baby, just like last season Meredith got little screentime because her funciton was to support Derek in his new job at the time.
After last episode I doubt that Meredith will end up being Chief Resident, she choose to do the Alzhimer's trial over her mother's trial which would've given her tremedous advantange in the Chief resident race. Not only she would've had the Chief ear completely, she would gain tremedous professional prestige with it even more than the Alzhimers's trial.
If Meredith does get the chief residency, I think she is going to turn it down. I think Meredith want to be a mommy and work with Derek on the Alzhimer's trial more than being chief resident.
Again it will be difficult whether Derek works with Meredith on the trial or not. The clinical trial is personal, each patient will remind him of what could be Meredith's fate, whether she is working with him or not.
KMK said it that on the next episode, Derek has a difficult time working on the clinical trial because it is too personal and too close to home. Meredith is not working with him on the next episode, Alex is the one working with him. So Meredith working on the clinical trial or not won't change Derek having a emotional difficult time working on it.
In order for him not to have emotional difficulty working on the trial Derek needs ot reasses his reasons for working on it. His reasons can not be about his fears of Meredith getting Alzhiemer's. It has to be about finding a cure for thousands of people who suffer from the disease. Meredith developing Alzhimer's or not developing Alzheimer's should be an irrelevant reason for the trial.
I am pissed off, because Derek doesn't explain to Meredith why he is not picking her to work with in the Clinical trial. I think Meredith is thinking that Derek is not picking her because he thinks that she is not a good enough doctor, not because he is afraid of her getting Alzhimers'. Derek did tell the Chief that Mereidth was talented but he didn't tell that to Mer. Right now Meredith is feeling like a failure and Derek not picking her, doesn't help does feelings.
What Derek doesn't get is that no matter how much he keeps Meredith away from the trial he is still not going to be objective, because the trial is not about saving Meredith from ALzhimer's is about Derek being afraid of losing Meredih to Alzhiemer's and him preventing it.
Contrive and Force. Whatever happen to the natural evolution of a storyline.
It is not a deleted scene it aired.
That was when Beth their last clinical trial patient wanted to have sex with Jeremy the boy who died before they suceded with the trial. Here is the scene

Sides are the scripts that is pass around for actors who are auditioning to be guest star on the show. They usually are the dialogue for the patients.
Maybe Derek gets over his clouded judgement and realize that even if he doesn't work with Meredith, he is still can't be objective.
According to the sides most of the case are either a husband who has ALZ and the wife who take care of him or the wife who has ALZ and the husband who takes care of her. If Meredith get ALZ that would be Derek's case, so every patient is going to remind him of the possibility of Meredith getting ALZ. So objectivity was thrown out of the window when he decided to find a cure fo ALZ, to save Meredith from it.
Derek is just fooling himself thinking that keep Mereidth out of the clinicla trial is going to keep him objective, it won't because his reasons for doing the Clinical trial are personal.
