I'm looking at page OM28 here:
If you don’t relish the idea of sitting out an entire Act or it doesn’t make sense in the story for the Watcher to skip ahead several weeks in a single Transition Scene, you can opt for the spotlight route. The Watcher frames an Action Scene featuring your hero in which your trauma makes things worse for you, i.e., it’s used against you in the opposition dice pools.
I'm not sure what this extra action scene should entail. If only the affected hero is involved, then the rest of the heroes are going to be stuck waiting. If it's simply the next action scene, then the watcher is probably going to be rolling the hero's trauma die anyway.
So: what does the "spotlight route" actually entail?
