GAME OF THRONES

S07E07 - "THE DRAGON AND THE WOLF"

DELETED SCENE - "MORNING AFTER"

July 1, 2018

Jon and Dany have a morning-after conversation.

INT. DANY'S FLAGSHIP - DANY'S CABIN - MORNING
DAENERYS TARGARYEN is lying on her side in bed, wearing a pensive expression. JON SNOW is in bed with her, asleep.
Jon slowly blinks awake. He sees her watching him.
JON
(sleepy)
Good morning.
Dany just keeps watching him.
JON
What.
DANY
Just thinking.
JON
About?
DANY
What to do with you.
Jon smiles sleepily.
JON
You didn't seem at a loss for ideas.
Dany smiles, then grows serious again.
DANY
I left a lover behind in Meereen. A lover is a liability when you're forging alliances.
Jon nods.
JON
(carefully neutral)
Who are you hoping to marry?
DANY
I don't know.
JON
You could marry me.
They share a gaze. Then Dany remembers herself and shifts her eyes away, thinking.

2.
JON
(blinks, recovering)
Or we could just be... liabilities... together.
DANY
You had a lover too, once.
Jon nods.
DANY
Where is she now?
JON
She's dead.
DANY
I'm sorry.
JON
Me too.
A beat. Jon puts a hand under Dany's face. He strokes her chin lightly with his thumb, looking at her thoughtfully.
JON
I'd told myself I wouldn't do this.
DANY
I didn't think you wanted this.
JON
'Course I did.
DANY
You hardly showed it.
(off his raised eyebrows)
In the beginning.
JON
We didn't see eye-to-eye in the beginning.
Dany smiles.
JON
Love is a liability, like you said.
DANY
So why now?
Jon shifts his posture sheepishly, shaking his head.

3.
JON
I'm weak.
DANY
No.
JON
(more serious)
We started seeing eye-to-eye.
He looks at Dany, thinking.
JON
We could have died up there. We could still die up there.
They share a look.
DANY
(soft but determined)
I don't want us to die.
He looks at her.
JON
Then let's live.
They kiss.
