I agree, normally itīs like that. But from I understood, there were two writing teams. One Denaīs still working as usual, and next Edīs. And in that case they donīt need to wait and/or transition, itīs only a matter of what script/outline is put into a production.

Wow, we have a preview! And a decent preview to top that. Another sign the situation behind the scene is finally normalizing.
Wow, you really think so?
Ed Scott was just fired less than a week ago. We likely won't see much of Gary Tomlin's influence until later in the fall, which means that we're probably going to be stuck in yet another weird transitional phase where the actors are uncertain, the stories are uneven and the fans are left baffled.
I donīt think so. Dena and her team still wrote the scripts, they just werenīt produced. The first thing theyīve had to do after the scandal exploded is to toss all the Edīs scripts away and return to the originals which still existed. This are based on the originals. Note itīs not Ed Scott doing the preview, but NBCīs head of daytime. They already knew Ed is a goner.
It's not as simple as that. If Ed has been influencing actual story direction (a claim I remain sceptical about), they would also have to return to Dena's original outlines and breakdowns. That process would take several weeks to be reflected in the scripts. It's not like they can use "Ed's scripts" on Monday and "Dena's scripts" on Tuesday. There's always a transitional phase when shifting from one writer or producer's vision to another.
Besides Iīm sceptic too, I realy donīt think Ed had something like a real story outlines. If the stuff we see now is his itīs clear it was more about pleasing the fanbases than some real longterm story. It seems he was more proJarlena and pro EJami than Dena is.
