Unfortunately, for people like me who dont watch PrP, this just isnt really going to make sense in GA. Derek had the chance to tell Meredith this stuff in season 5 but didnt. Seems inconsistent to suddenly raise it.
Not at all meaning to sound snarky here, since ITA with the point you are making, but it will hardly be the first inconsistency on GA. As much as Shonda talks about there is "always a plan" I think a lot of stuff just gets made up as she goes along. In a recent Jessica Capshaw interview (relevant here because she was talking about Season 7 a bit), she mentioned that in her early scenes with Alex, both she and Justin Chambers assumed that the two of them were going to be paired up at some point. Arizona being a life-long lesbian is a key part of her story now, but it seems that her sexual orientation either wasn't part of the original plan OR that no one had bothered to tell the actress when she was cast. I'm pretty sure that Patrick Dempsey once said in an interview that Shonda didn't tell him that his character had a wife back in New York at the start of the series, and that he would have played Derek differently if he had known.
So yes, the new trusting/loving relationship between Meredith and Derek doesn't quite seem consistent with his failure to tell her that his father was shot in front of him and his sister. Hopefully, that revelation along with trying to get pregnant will make Mer/Der the resident angst couple for Season 7, and give Cristina and Owen a little break!
