Daenerys finally arrived in Westeros in Game of Thrones season 7 premiere (Dragonstone) and apart from ‘Shall we begin’, the scene had no dialogue whatsoever. Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss explain us why:
Benioff: For those of us who have been with the story from the beginning and really followed Dany’s journey, coming home is such a massive gamechanger on so many levels and we just wanted to see that.
Weiss: There’s so much wait on that arrival that we felt that a bunch of dialogue was completely unnecessary. It would only step on the emotion of the moment.
Benioff: Everyone’s giving her a little bit of distance, you know… Tyrion is usually the most loquacious of people. He’s not talking because he wants her to experience it. At one point Grey Worm is about to kind of walk up alongside Dany to guard her and Missandei holds him back because she wants Dany to experience this on her own. And then she has the time and then she’s ready to begin.
