What happened in season 2 of ‘Cobra Kai’
In the second season, the series went beyond the bad blood between enemies Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) to include the students in his dojo. The season culminates with an outburst at the high school where Robby (Tanner Buchanan) pushes Miguel (Xolo Mariduena) over the stair railing and toward an uncertain fate. The shocking result sets the stage for the two instructors to question their teaching philosophy in the upcoming season.
What will happen in season 3
Part of that self-reflection will consist of delving into the origins of each of the dojos. Throughout the series, Daniel has deeply felt the loss of his sensei, Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita). In Season 3, part of his exploration of Miyagi-Do will involve digging deeper into his roots .
As Josh Heald commented, “We found that Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do dig into those origins a little bit. On that trip, we will see Daniel LaRusso return to Okinawa .” Fans of the franchise originally saw Daniel visit Mr. Miyagi’s hometown in the sequel to the original film, ‘The Karate Kid II’. In that movie, Daniel met and had a brief romance with Kumiko (Tamlyn Tomita).
Daniel’s understanding and appropriation of karate is primarily due to his interactions with his sensei. After Miyagi’s death, Daniel’s apprenticeship seemed to have stalled , though he used the glory of his former karate tournament in his work, when he talked about beating the competition or offering an extra bonsai for customers at his car dealership. cars.
