|Carla didn't have a lot of screen time for some reason. Does anyone know why? |
Well, besides JD and Turk, and I guess Jordan, none of the regulars were in the second episode. That's because (from what I remember) the move to ABC also came with some budget cuts. One of those budgets were that every single regular character would be absent from two episodes this season.
As for Carla, not positive, but I think the switch to ABC also meant that the cast, specifically her, are not getting paid as much as they were on NBC. I remember reading that somewhere, so there ya go.
I also read that this will indeed be the last season. For real this time! So enjoy!
