'Cobra Kai's Mary Mouser talks about her love square with Robby, Miguel and Tory in season 2 and being friends with them offscreen
The actress shares with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) about both Miguel and Robby's traits in the show and how comfortable it was to hang out with them on the sets
'Cobra Kai' Season 2 ended differently for each character and this may play a key role in the upcoming season that will hit YouTube Premium next year. One of the characters who received a lot of attention in the second season was Samantha LaRusso (Mary Mouser). Over the course of the season, she becomes central to the plotline that involves the young characters.
Talking exclusively to MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Mouser shed light on her character's status at the end of the season. To rewind things a little bit, the final episode titled 'No Mercy', sees a face-off between her and Tory (Peyton List) on the first day of high school following an incident at a party the previous night which included Sam kissing Miguel, played by Xolo Maridueña, (who at the point has supposedly broken up with her and is dating Tory instead).
A fistfight ensues that also sees Miguel and Robby (Tanner Buchanan), Sam's new boyfriend, lock horns, along with half the school using that as an opportunity to take on others whom they had a score to settle with. The brawl ends on an ugly note with Miguel being thrown off the staircase railing and is shown to be in a critical state while Robby is shown to have fled from the scene. Sam, on her part, is shown to be treated at the hospital with her parents by her side.
When asked about her relationship status at the end of the season, Mouser stated: "I am single by the end of the season."
Mouser added that while the love square on-screen sees them dealing with relationship issues, the off-screen scenes were pretty light. "I mean both of them are just so amazing as actors, and as people, I love hanging out with both of them as my friends," she remarked.
The actress also shed light on how her role as Sam evolved with the two characters and it was quite difficult to actually choose between the two.
"For Samantha, she personally connects with Miguel, because he is representative of everything that she was kind of moving against in the first season. He was this kind warm person who just had this big heart they have this cool connection over being just normal kids, not being caught up in this drama and its kind of like centered her. With Robby, it's completely different, she was completely heartbroken over Miguel and then finding Robby and he's kind of this other sense of balance. It's kind of like two halves of herself that she needs to figure out which way she's going."
At this point, it seems fair to assume that rebuilding her relationship with Miguel may be one of the plot points in the upcoming season, but how she deals with Robby, her daddy issues, and her rivalry with Tory is something we'll find out more about when the third season premieres on YouTube Premium in September 2020.
