As much as I do have issue with the season overall, I think there is more reason to the Dothraki charge than most answerers suggest.

What reasoning do you have to assume that others must invariably have heard it? Maybe they did, maybe they didn't. The show runners clearly suggest they didn't. What makes you discount that possibility, other than "maybe they did hear it"? The only argument you bring is: Starting from his room he arrives pretty quickly on the scene-- we can thus conclude ...
