So you want to get the
that a page is connected to, and show the preview for that route, right?

Exactly, I have the page referenced in the route schema.
      name: 'page',
      type: 'reference',
      validation: (Rule) => Rule.required(),
      description: 'The page you want to appear at this path. Remember it needs to be published.',
      to: [
          type: 'page'
I just need to access the
for this route on the connected page!

Check if something like this work:
              .title('Active pages')
              .filter('_type == "page" && _id in *[_type == "route"].page._ref')
              .child(async documentId => {
                const slug = await client.fetch(
                  `*[_type == "route" && page._ref == $documentId][0].slug.current`,
                  { documentId }
                return S.document()
                    S.view.component(PagePreview).title('preview'.options({ slug })
