What We Know and What to Count on



With Cobra Kai Season 3 sizzling off the presses its solely pure to begin pontificating on the place this present will go subsequent. Will Daniel and Johnny’s alliance maintain up? Will Hawk keep away from Cobra Kai? Who’s Kreese going to be herald to assist him? The questions are limitless and actually may go on endlessly. That is the fantastic thing about Cobra Kai because it enters its 4th installment, not solely does it have the lore of 4 motion pictures (and a online game in addition to animated TV present to again it up), it not now has 30 episodes of wholly new storylines through which to hold its gi.

So, after the unthinkable (40 years within the making!) occurred, Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny (William Zabka) have lastly teamed up, the place can the present go from right here? All through Cobra Kai seasons 2 and three these two have been basically preventing John Kreese (Martin Kove). Now, they’ve actually forged their tons with each other as a result of it truly is true that “the enemy of my enemy is my good friend.” With Cobra Kai Season 3 carried out and everyone questioning what is going on to occur subsequent, it appeared like the precise time to deal with these questions head on and allow you to what to anticipate in Cobra Kai Season 4.

Tory vs Samantha: Will they settle issues as soon as and for all?

Samantha and Tory - Cobra Kai Season 4

In Cobra Kai Season 3 Tory (Peyton Checklist) appears to have Samantha LaRusso’s (Mary Mouser) quantity. Samantha is shell-shocked from their battle in Season 2. Every time they’ve an opportunity to struggle in Season 3, Samantha is extraordinarily gun shy. She does not wish to interact Tory and this helps bolster the Tory character is being one thing past a badass. Nonetheless, on the finish of Season 3, Samantha stands as much as Tory. She fights again in a manner that permits you to know she will maintain her personal with this seemingly indomitable foe. Search for the the ultimate battle between Miyagi Do/Eagle Fang and the Cobra Kai dojo to come back right down to Tory vs. Samantha. And… search for it to be the most effective battles in the complete Karate Child canon!

Now that Miyagi Do and Eagle Fang dojos have joined forces, will they keep collectively?

Miyagi Do and Eagle Fang - Cobra Kai Season 4

As we finish Cobra Kai Season 3, Daniel and Johnny have merged dojos. Now, if you happen to pay shut consideration to the physique language, it looks like Johnny and Daniel’s college students have squashed all beefs and every little thing is cool. Or, is it? Within the ultimate moments of Season 3, Demetri (Gianni Decenzo) and Hawk (Jacob Bertrand) shake palms and share a bro hug. Miguel (Xolo Mariduena) and Samantha smile at each other as if their relationship by no means skipped a beat. Nonetheless, it is the look that Daniel and Johnny give each other that could be probably the most telling. Their bond seems like an uneasy alliance. They appear to have a stage of distrust, constructed up after almost 4 many years, that does not seem to be it is simply going to evaporate now that they’re coaching in Daniel’s yard. So, will they keep collectively? Most definitely, however search for some very rocky moments (full of miscommunication and misinformation) alongside the best way.

Will Robby and Tory hook up?

Robby and Tory - Cobra Kai Season 4

Robby (Tanner Buchanan) and Tory are basically the identical character. They each have quick fuses, they each fall afoul of the legislation, and so they each appear susceptible to having points with individuals. Now that they’re being skilled by Kreese beneath the Cobra Kai banner, it appears logical that these two will ultimately change into a factor. Their shared histories, to not point out the time they’ll almost definitely spend collectively coaching to beat Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang, looks like it has put these two on a collision course of the center. So… they’re nearly assured to hook up, however will they keep collectively? That is still to be seen.

Will Hawk stay loyal to Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang?

Hawk switches sides Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang - Cobra Kai Season 4

Once more, on the finish of Season 3 it looks like Hawk, Demetri and all the previous Cobra Kai pals and foes have squashed any remaining beefs from the primary seasons. Nonetheless, Hawk stays a wildcard. As sturdy as he’s, as devoted as he’s, he appears to lack a strong sense of who he’s. Having been a personality who overcompensated for a lot of the sequence (the angle, the overdone Mohawk, the tattoos, and so on.), he looks like the ripest to fall pray to no matter plan Kreese might have. Positive, he’ll do every little thing he can to remain sturdy, however as soon as Tory and the others remind him of his allegiances, as soon as Kreese will get him alone, it looks like it is solely a matter of time till Hawk’s loyalty to his new dojo is known as into query.

Is Kreese bringing Terry Silver from Karate Child 3 into Cobra Kai Season 4?

Terry Silver and Kreese from Karate Kid 3 - Cobra Kai Season 4

On the finish of Cobra Kai Season 3 we see Kreese, battered and bruised, on the cellphone calling an previous good friend. That is juxtaposed with him battered and bruised after an incident in Vietnam through which he saves one other soldier’s life. The soldier tells him that ought to Kreese want something he can be there for him. Now, Kreese, within the current when he makes the ultimate cellphone name in Season 3, is taking a look at an image of himself and two different troopers again in Vietnam. Nonetheless, given how Cobra Kai likes to deliver again previous gamers from The Karate Child motion pictures previous, it looks like a strong wager that Kreese is re-enlisting Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffin), the dangerous man from The Karate Child Half III, to hitch him in his new struggle. The one fly in that ointment is that Terry did not appear that happy with Kreese on the finish of The Karate Child Half III so why would he be part of him for an additional struggle through which Daniel (and Johnny) are clearly higher fortified?

Is Mike Barnes from Karate Child 3 displaying up in Cobra Kai season 4?

Mike Barnes from Karate Kid 3 - Cobra Kai Season 4

Mike Barnes (Sean Kanan) was the dangerous man in Karate Child Half III. It stands to purpose that if Kreese, on the finish of Cobra Kai Season 3, is re-activating his relationship with Terry Silver, then Mike Barnes should not be far behind. Positive, Daniel and Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) dusted them on the finish of that 1989 movie, however Kreese bought beat in 1984 and that did not cease him from launching one helluva comeback. Mike Barnes, like Johnny earlier than him, most likely hasn’t fared too properly in life both. He may tag alongside on this new problem (with college students of his personal?) who may enact some lengthy awaited payback on Daniel and by proxy Miyagi-Do/Eagle Fang Karate. There’s even a risk that he and Daniel may face each other once more? Or, Johnny may take him on?

Will Shawn from Juvenile Corridor come again?

Shawn Robby bully - Cobra Kai Season 4

Robby’s stint in Juvenile Corridor wasn’t that memorable EXCEPT for his very tense relationship with Shawn (Okea Eme-Akwari). Shawn was on Robby from the second he confirmed up. Finally, these two went at it and Robby nor Shawn took a backward step. That is what made their battle so memorable and on the finish of it they appeared to have created a friendship cast in hearth. So it stands to purpose that Shawn may reappear in Cobra Kai Season 4. Think about this situation… Shawn will get out of juvenile corridor, possibly he has nowhere to go, or he wants one thing to do to maintain his parole officer pleased? Regardless of the case, he finds his approach to the Cobra Kai dojo, Robby tells Kreese about him and viola the Miyagi-Do/Eagle Fang dojo has much more to fret about.

Miguel and Samantha are again collectively, will they keep collectively?

Miguel and Samantha - Cobra Kai Season 4

In truth, Samantha and Robby felt extra like a scenario of Mr. Proper Now then Samantha having discovered Mr. Proper. This was by no means extra obvious than when Miguel had an opportunity to be with Samantha in Cobra Kai Season 3. Oddly, Miguel appears to nonetheless have emotions for Tory however he appears to know that she is not the precise individual for him. Additionally, we bought to see Miguel and Daniel spend some high quality time collectively and that helped Daniel clarify his position within the Johnny equation. Now, with Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang having joined forces, this looks like it would make the connection between Miguel and Samantha even stronger.

Might The Subsequent Karate Child’s Hilary Swank ever make a cameo in Cobra Kai?

Hilary Swank from Karate Kid 4 - Cobra Kai Season 4

Snigger if you would like however Hilary Swank was the star of The Subsequent Karate Child. She got here into Miyagi’s life after Daniel had moved on so why could not she present up in Cobra Kai someplace? Possibly there’s an deadlock of types between Eagle Fang and Miyagi-Do Karate? Possibly Swank’s character Julie Pierce has a toddler who trains at that dojo? Or, her baby may be part of Cobra Kai? Maybe Julie turns into an teacher at one of many dojos? She may very well be introduced into this complete factor by Amanda LaRusso (Courtney Henggeler)… possibly they’re work pals indirectly? Look, in actual life, Swank simply did a Away for Netflix that was cancelled after a season. Wouldn’t it be so laborious to think about her hitching her star to a property that appears to be a veritable slam dunk?

Demetri and Yasmine: Is that this for actual?

Demetri and Yasmine make out - Cobra Kai Season 4

Demetri just about spent the primary two seasons of Cobra Kai not doing a lot apart from complaining and being frightened of every little thing. Cobra Kai Season 3 was when he lastly gained some confidence, got here into his personal, and bought to make out with Yasmine (Annalisa Cochrane). After getting caught by Samantha and Miguel, Yasmine performed off the kiss as not that means something, whereas Demetri declared that he was “in love.” So what occurs now? Search for these two to proceed their relationship within the shadows which can solely make them extra attracted to at least one one other.

Will Daniel and Johnny stay pals in Cobra Kai Season 4?

Daniel and Johnny - Cobra Kai Season 4

As we ended Cobra Kai Season 3, Daniel and Johnny had shaped a frenemy alliance that followers thought could be within the offing ever since Kreese appeared on the finish of Season 1. Positive, there have been a number of hiccups to get up to now (Daniel having points with Miguel, Robby dwelling within the LaRusso residence, Daniel and Johnny’s storied previous), however the truth is we’re right here now. The query is can our major characters keep right here? Will Daniel and Johnny’s uneasy alliance crumble the minute there’s any type of problem with Robby, Miguel and Samantha? It looks like there can be cracks alongside the best way however in the end Daniel and Johnny will journey it out. This can be a union that, if we’d’ve instructed you 36 years in the past was going to occur, you’d have laughed in our faces. Now, no less than for these two characters, that is the one path ahead so it stands to purpose that they’ll grin and naked any tough moments.

If Cobra Kai is defeated will it disband or simply be taken again by Johnny?

Johnny Lawrence - Cobra Kai Season 4

Kreese makes it clear that he’s going to go away ought to Cobra Kai lose to Daniel and Johnny’s dojos. The query stays is what would occur to the Cobra Kai dojo ought to they be defeated within the match? Nicely, from merely a housekeeping perspective the dojo itself would change into one other storefront in that Reseda strip mall if the lease wasn’t taken over by Johnny. It is not so laborious to think about Daniel staking Cobra Kai some cash to get Johnny began? Or, does Johnny stay with Daniel in his yard as a co-owner of their newly shaped karate faculty? The largely like situation, ought to really Kreese go, and primarily based on Johnny’s feedback about Cobra Kai in Season 3, is that Johnny will maintain the identify Eagle Fang and keep within the LaRusso yard. Except working with Daniel is insufferable after which he may transition Eagle Fang to the previous Cobra Kai spot. On this situation, all Cobra Kai could be at this level is a reputation.

Robby vs Miguel: Will they struggle once more?

Robby Miguel fight - Cobra Kai Season 4

Like the meat between Daniel and Johnny, Robby and Miguel’s beef really has extra mileage and points behind it. These two have mainly been enemies for 3 seasons, and so they’ve really actually fought one another in a match and a full scale brawl (versus Daniel and Johnny’s scrapes and one regulated match in The Karate Child). With Miguel now being skilled by Johnny and Daniel (a scenario that may little doubt trigger friction in Season 4) and Robby beneath the tutelage of Kreese, the stage is ready for these two to satisfy within the match and attempt to settle issues as soon as and for all. Miguel’s benefit is that he is crushed Robby earlier than (albeit with an asterisk as a result of Miguel went after Robby’s injured shoulder the primary time). Robby’s benefit would’ve been the soulful teachings of Miyagi-Do however now with Kreese behind him (and apparent anger at his traitor-father Johnny) it looks like blind rage is all he has. Robby additionally has the distinct benefit of almost killing Miguel on the finish of Season 2. Nonetheless, Robby is not a killer and that may really make him tentative when these two meet on the mat once more.

Hawk vs Kyler: This has to occur in Cobra Kai Season 4, proper?

Hawk Kyler fight - Cobra Kai Season 4

When Kyler (Joe Web optimization) joined the Cobra Kai dojo in Season 3 the very first thing he confirmed was an unimaginable floor sport. He was clearly a wrestler with some karate expertise who was now transitioning to the game of Karate full time. Instantly, one may see that Hawk felt threatened by the uber-confident Kyler. These two by no means actually had a beef, however with Hawk having a change of coronary heart about his dojo allegiances (actually mid-fight within the LaRusso residence!), it looks like Kyler (who used to tease Hawk when he was often known as Eli) goes to have his quantity. Count on many skirmishes between these two with their ultimate showdown taking place on the mat on the All Valley match.

When is Cobra Kai Season 4 filming?

In response to sequence co-creator Josh Heald, Cobra Kai season 4 is filming early in 2021. This might make the await Season 4 tremendous fast as Netflix may doubtlessly launch the subsequent season on January 1, 2022, the identical manner the streamer launched Cobra Kai season 3 on New Yr’s Day. Hopefully allowing, this can occur quickly.

Cobra Kai Season 5 on Netflix, will it occur?

Cobra Kai season 5 on Netflix

As of proper now it undoubtedly looks like we’re getting a Season 4 on the world’s most ubiquitous streamer. They’re even selling in adverts for Cobra Kai Season 3 that Season 4 is “in coaching.” Nonetheless, that’s nonetheless an extended methods away which makes the thought of Season 5 seem to be an eternity. Because it stands proper now, sufficient may occur in Season 4 that possibly that is the place the present hangs up its gi. Miyagi-Do Karate and Eagle Fang may defeat Cobra Kai, Johnny and Robby may reconcile, Samantha and Tory may work issues out, and so on., so there might not even be a necessity for a fifth season. On the similar time, Cobra Kai appears to be doing good enterprise for Netflix. Why would they wish to cancel it? The most important purpose may very well be monetary calls for. With every season the star energy of this forged grows and grows. Sure actors may get bored with taking part in sure roles, others may attempt to negotiate for extra money, a fifth season arc may seem to be a stretch… so it’s conceivable (although unlikely) that Cobra Kai ends issues after Season 4.

Will the All-Valley Event occur once more in Cobra Kai season 4?

All-Valley tournament - Cobra Kai Season 4

On the finish of Cobra Kai Season 3, Kreese makes his pitch to Daniel and Johnny to settle issues “the quaint manner.” A “match” is talked about to determine if Cobra Kai or the newly merged Miyagi Do or Eagle Fang Karate dojos (hopefully they give you a handy guide a rough identify) would be the fight sports activities hotspot in Reseda. Additionally, given how a lot town of Reseda seems to be steeped within the lore of karate, and the way little metropolis governments appear to wish to change issues, it solely appears becoming that the battle between the 2 dojos would occur on the initially titled All-Valley Event. Additionally, the match occurred in Th Karate Child, The Karate Child Half III and Cobra Kai Season 1. Why would not it occur in Cobra Kai Season 4?

Will Chozen Come to The U.S. to Assist Johnny and Daniel Combat Kreese?

Chozen Daniel fight Kreese - Cobra Kai Season 4

After Chozen (Yuji Okumoto) appeared in Cobra Kai Season 3, it was a shock to search out out that he was an excellent man. In spite of everything, this character wished to kill Daniel in The Karate Child Half II. He actually embodied the thought of “no mercy”, so it was fairly fascinating to see a softer, gentler Chozen when Daniel returned to Okinawa. Now, provided that we all know by the top of Season 3 (that Kreese is asking within the massive weapons for Season 4), should not Daniel and Johnny hedge their bets a bit and convey Chozen over? It looks like they might be an unbeatable mixture, particularly if Chozen introduced a pupil or two with him. Actually, that does not appear more likely to occur, although. As a lot as Cobra Kai trades on and expands on the lore of The Karate Child, bringing Chozen again after his close to excellent entry into Season 3, feels just a little hokey. Actually, we stand a greater probability of seeing Hilary Swank make an look.

Child Miyagi most likely will not ever be a factor, however will we ever see a younger Mr. Miyagi in flashbacks?

Baby Miyagi Young Mr. Miyagi - Cobra Kai Season 4

With the backstory of John Kreese being so properly carried out why could not we see a younger Mr. Miyagi? Would not you wish to learn about his formative years? About his army service and what it was like for him as an Asian American rising up in a really totally different America? Cobra Kai Season 4 may very well be a historical past lesson of types that not solely deepens his character however deepens the opposite character’s relationship to him. All now we have needed to go on to this point are the tales Mr. Miyagi has shared within the motion pictures, and what Daniel has instructed us within the present. A younger Mr. Miyagi character would develop this present additional and provides us solutions corresponding to why he purchased the house he did? How did he afford it (and all these automobiles) on a upkeep man’s wage?!? Think about the story of The Karate Child however seeing it from Mr. Miyagi’s perspective. What did he actually consider Daniel when he first met him? Was he secretly frightened of Kreese? Did he really feel dangerous beating up the Cobra Kai Dojo on Halloween?

Will Kumiko return to trigger issues in Daniel’s marriage?

Daniel and Kumiko - Cobra Kai Season 4

One of many sweetest Easter eggs that Cobra Kai Season 3 needed to provide was the return of Kumiko (Tamlyn Tomita), Daniel’s love curiosity from The Karate Child Half II. Now, Daniel appears dedicated to his spouse Amanda. Particularly since he nearly misplaced her in Cobra Kai Season 2! Additionally, Kumiko lives in Okinawa so the probabilities of Daniel and her hooking up are slim. On prime of that, Amanda did not appear to have an issue with Daniel seeing an previous flame throughout his journey down reminiscence lane. If Amanda was upset, we by no means actually noticed it as she was too busy working the household enterprise and making an attempt to maintain a bunch of savage karate college students from killing each other. That mentioned, our world is far more related than the world was in The Karate Child Half II. It is not very seemingly however Daniel may Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Google Meet, and so on. with Kumiko in a manner that, if Amanda came upon, she would not be happy. Will this occur? In all probability not. Daniel nearly misplaced Amanda as soon as. He’d be a idiot to threat every little thing once more, particularly with every little thing happening in Reseda.

Have we seen the final of Elisabeth Shue’s Ali?

Elisabeth Shue as Ali - Cobra Kai Season 4

With Cobra Kai now we have realized to by no means say by no means. Even whenever you heard about this sequence did you ever assume you’d see Kreese once more and study his life story? Did you ever assume you’d see the opposite dangerous boys from the unique Cobra Kai dojo? Did you assume you’d ever mutter the identify Chozen or Terry Silver once more? Primarily based on what we noticed of Ali in Cobra Kai Season 3, she appears to have served her goal. She was the explanation for Daniel and Johnny to struggle within the first place, however on the similar time she was additionally a part of the explanation that Daniel transcended his scenario in The Karate Child. She helped reply some questions, defined and debunked some lengthy held fan theories, and he or she confirmed our two protagonists that they really are extra alike than they understand (which is sensible why she favored each of them initially!). So, whereas it does not seem to be she is going to come again (and I personally assume she won’t), she may relocate as she’s not married. One in every of her youngsters may very well be all in favour of Karate or she may simply occur to be on the town to take a look at the All Valley match that appears on deck for Cobra Kai Season 4.

Will Daniel and Johnny ever struggle one another once more?

Daniel and Johnny fight - Cobra Kai Season 4

As of this writing and the best way issues look headed into Cobra Kai Season 4, this does not seem more likely to occur anytime quickly. Then once more, in 2017 if you happen to had instructed me that we might be 3 seasons deep on a present that was a spin-off of The Karate Child, I do not assume I might have thought was attainable both. As I’ve said, every little thing that now we have seen from The Karate Child to the third Season of Cobra Kai has been constructing towards this alliance between Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. A number of instances, particularly in Season 2, they got here near squashing their beef. Now, with their dojo’s merged and this seemingly being the perfect plan of action for the youth of Reseda, it is not out of the query but it surely’s extremely unlikely that our favourite frenemies will interact each other in fight once more.
