Sesame Street thinks it has the answer to all of the problems depicted on HBO's Game of Thrones.
The wildly popular series about seven strained families vying for the Iron Throne returned last week and the first episode, titled "Winterfell," reminded us that none of these people get along.
A tense negotiation between Tyrion and Cersei Lannister is sidelined once Elmo shows up to preach about this little thing called "respect." Yes, it seems the Lannisters never even listened to that famous Aretha Franklin song.
"Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other," says Elmo, who adds:
"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."
"If we stop fighting and work together, we can be stronger," realizes Tyrion, and before you know it, Tyrion and his sister are setting aside their differences faster than you can say Valar morghulis.

Who knew Elmo could succeed at what (now) eight seasons of television were utterly unable to achieve?
Seriously: Who knew?!
