While Elmo was in Westeros, Cookie Monster dropped by Westworld to deliver a similar lecture to Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood). Elmo asks, to which Cersei begrudgingly responds, "I can try".

In another, a beloved blue monster pays a visit to Westworldon a mission of "cookie diplomacy".
