Spoilers for ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 3
The third season of ‘Cobra Kai’ was fantastic from start to end. The Netflix comedy-drama based on ‘The Karate Kid’ saw two characters progress a lot, even if they both got fleshed into an increasingly antagonistic role. We are, of course, talking about Tory (Peyton List) and Robby (Tanner Buchanan).
This season was not easy for either. For starters, Robby was arrested and sent to a juvenile detention center for attacking Miguel (Xolo Maridueña), causing him to remain hospitalized for a significant time. And at the center, Robby was constantly harassed and assaulted. The whole ordeal also pushed him further away from both, his father Johnny (William Zabka), and his father-figure Daniel (Ralph Macchio).
He also had bad luck in the romance area. He saw his ex Samantha (Mary Mouser) with Miguel and that broke his heart. And all of this combined rage was harnessed by Kreese (Martin Kove). But his rage wasn’t the only one Kreese used to his advantage.
Tory’s rough life was shown in this season. Yes, she hates Samantha (frankly, she is cruel to her), but she is not evil. Her mother is on dialysis and very sick, and she's constantly harassed by her landlord. She is supporting her family by working multiple jobs. And she now knows that her love interest Miguel is seeing Samantha, a person she detests.
This brings us to a weird possibility in season 4. Will Robby and Tory become a couple in the next edition of ‘Cobra Kai’? It would make all kinds of sense. For starters, they both see themselves as being betrayed by the people they love. They both have had rough lives. And they both are now the prodigal students for the Cobra Kai dojo. And they both hate the same people.
Yes, at this point, they are both the bad guys. But neither of them are evil. They are victims of their circumstances and they are both manipulated by Kreese. Also, now that Miguel and Sam are together, it only makes sense for Robby and Tory to couple up.
Plus, it would also be a nice arc for both of them. They are after all important characters in the story to come. And them getting together will only add more drama to the story as they prepare for the "All Valley Karate Tournament".
In October 2020, ‘Cobra Kai’ was renewed for a fourth season ahead of the third season premiere. Season 3 of the show premiered on Netflix on January 1, 2021. No release date for Season 4 has been announced yet. However, ‘Cobra Kai’ co-creator Jon Hurwitz said earlier this year, "I don't have the answer, but would imagine Season 4 will come out roughly a year after Season 3."
Hurwitz shared in late October that the Season 4 writing process was all wrapped up. "Final day of the Season 4 writers' room," he said. "14 weeks with some of my favorite people in the world. Scripts are rolling in. Excited we’ll have everything written and polished by the time we start filming. It’s going to be another kick a** season!"
