Cobra Kai's Mary Mouser reveals Easter egg from season 2, says she'd love to see Ali Mills return to the show
Daniel and Johnny, who have both taken their ladies out to the same Mexican restaurant, end up sitting next to each other and share an anecdote that is a reference to the original movies
The YouTube Premium show 'Cobra Kai' has become a crowd favorite. The series worked well with the audience primarily due to the perfect blend of nostalgia, a solid foundation when it came to casting, directing and writing, and with its relatable characters.
'Cobra Kai' season 2 sees John Kreese (Martin Kove) come back after being presumed dead. What makes his return so brilliant is that he's here to stay.
As the season progresses, Kreese becomes an integral part of Johnny and LaRusso's lives. He's still pretty much Kreese: burly and snide. But, this time around, he comes in as a character who is more sinister, darker and calculative.
The season took us on a roller-coaster ride and the fans can't have enough of it.
Mary Mouser, who plays Sam LaRusso, spoke to 'The NotSam Network's The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro & Roxy Striar', and revealed a never before discussed season 2 Easter egg.
Talking to the Roxy Striar, she said, "There's actually a moment that I think is kinda like a hidden Easter egg that's in season two. There's a scene where Daniel and Johnny, who have both taken their ladies out to the same Mexican restaurant, end up sitting next to each other and talking.
They share a drunken story... If I remember correctly, it was a blueberry pie. I think that's what they're talking about. Johnny's like, 'You shoved the pie in my face,' and he's like, 'Well, that's after you made me sit on it,' or whatever."
She says this was in reference to footage filmed in the cafeteria during the original 'Karate Kid' movies.
"There was apparently an actual shot where he put the pie on the chair and Daniel sat on it. He then shoved it in Johnny's face. So I guess they wanted to tell this story as if that happened in their lives." The incident was part of some never-before-seen footage. According to Mouser, at the beginning of Season 1, when the show takes off after the big fight, the shots which were Johnny centric were original setups and shots that were not were added in the original movie.
She also talks about her favorite moment in Season 1, where John sits down with the three of them and explains to them his side of the story and why LaRusso is a 'jerk'.
The initial foreshot of the Original Cobra Kai all laughing together is also reportedly part of the original footage.
She also addressed the rumors of Ai Mills returning as the love interest for Season 3. She calls herself a 'nerd of the show who would want to know everything about it' and said that she'd love to see Mills return to the show.
Mouser also spoke of working with Billy Zabka (who plays John) and said that working around him and observing them was awesome. She says he is "a kind, welcoming and amazing of a person".
She also talks of Zabka as being amazing at karate and how she looks up to him and has even asked him to teach her a thing or two.
Mouser also spoke about the rumours of Zendaya playing the Little Mermaid, "I feel like that’s true to the world we live in now. If the little mermaid was being animated now, I feel like she... Zendaya’s incredible. She’s so incredible. I feel like she could totally take that character and do something incredible with it.”
