‘Sesame Street’ shows us how ‘Game of Thrones’ probably won’t end

Sesame Street tweeted out this video with the message #RespectIsComing.

(CNN) — Elmo wants to bring peace to Westeros.

In a video released Thursday, which emphasizes respect, the “Sesame Street” fave tries to encourage levelheaded dialogue between Cersei and Tyrion Lannister, who are in a tense conversation when Elmo arrives.

“I only want what’s best for Westeros,” Tyrion says.

“And I only want for you not to get what you want,” Cersei bites back.

“See, this is why you don’t have any friends,” her brother retorts.

As “Elmo of Sesame Street” takes a seat at the head of the table, he says respect is the key to solving problems.

“When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn’t get upset. Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say,” says Elmo. (Tyrion’s reaction to the name Cookie Monster is worthy of an Emmy.)

“Sesame Street” teased the video on Twitter with #RespectIsComing.

The long-running kids’ program currently airs on HBO as part of a deal announced back in 2015 that was something of a lifeline for the Sesame Workshop. (HBO, like CNN, is owned by WarnerMedia.)

The friendly resolution that transpires in the video segment is certainly not an ending “Game of Thrones” fans can expect when the show signs off in May. But we can’t say Elmo didn’t try.
