Cobra Kai

Season 2 generally

Question: Johnny punishes his Cobra Kai class after learning that certain members trashed Daniel's Dojo to try to get the culprits to confess (with no luck). Why didn't he just send them all to Daniel's Dojo to clean up the mess and fix it up? That would have been the more honourable thing to do.

Gavin Jackson

Answer: He was trying to flesh out the actual culprits but, as you pointed out, he wasn't having any luck. But if he hadn't received the phone call, he might have sent the entire class over to clean up. However, in the same episode, check Robby and Demitri's reactions to the former Cobra Kai students joining Daniel's school. Daniel's anger at Johnny's dojo might have convinced Johnny that the current students would not be welcome there, so he might have been reluctant to send anyone even if it was the honorable thing to do. Also, Johnny mentions in an earlier episode that there is a difference between mercy and honor. He wants to make sure the real culprits get punished properly. Once he discovered who did it, the innocent would be off the hook and then the real punishment would begin for the guilty. So, in closing, there could be any number of reasons why he didn't send the entire class to clean up Miyagi-do.

Question: I've never seen the show so an explanation would really help. Why would Johnny open up his own Cobra Kai dojo? Since there was probably a lot of negative publicity due to how Kreese taught his students and how he attacked Johnny, a lot of people probably wouldn't go to a dojo synonymous with brutality but maybe to a dojo that taught karate the way it should be learned.

Answer: Just like in the original film, some guys want that brutality. Johnny in part opens the dojo because of his past rivalry with Daniel and to train a kid that's being bullied. But also, other kids that are being bullied want to join in order to learn to fight back. Johnny is also teaching the Cobra Kai creed (Strike First. Strike hard. No Mercy.") so that's why he opens his dojo with that name and the old Cobra Kai dojo's past reputation is exactly what he wants to elicit.

Question: Did Cobra Kai take over the valleyfest thing to get back at Daniel's "snake in the grass" insult or to get more students?

Answer: Both.

Question: Johnny has a son named Robbie. Johnny seems to want nothing to do with him so why does he keep a picture of him on his refrigerator?

Answer: Because despite whatever unresolved issues there are between them, he still cares about his son, and probably hopes for reconciliation one day.

Question: How come Sam and Aisha stopped being friends just cause Sam was hanging out with Yasmine?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Yasime was being mean to her.

But Sam wasn't. It was even obvious that Sam didn't like it.

Sam and Aisha were long-time friends and Sam wasn't standing up for Aisha at all. She continued being friends with Yasmine even though she was being cruel to Aisha. Being uncomfortable at Yasmine's insults is not going far enough to stand up for Aisha.

Question: How did Shannon know that Robby was living with the Larussos?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Daniel told him.

Different but Same - S1-E9

Question: Johnny quit drinking in the last episode. Why did he go back to drinking in this one?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because of the school fight at the end of season 2 - Robby injures Miguel.

The original question dealt with an episode of season 1. The school fight happened at the end of season 2, so it had nothing to do with why he went back to drinking in first season.

Mercy - S1-E10

Question: After Miguel said "Watch what I do to Robby in the finals" why didn't Sam warn Robby and ask him not to fight Miguel and then go home?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: She didn't want to interrupt the match.

I meant while Robby was in the other room with Daniel.

Question: I thought Johnny and Daniel patched things up at the end of the first movie? So why do they still hate each other?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: The first episode really only shows that Johnny still hates Daniel. Daniel is shown being friendly with Johnny when Johnny visited the car shop. Johnny was down and out and he was most likely jealous of Daniel's success. Only when Johnny was still giving Daniel a hard time did Daniel start feeling the hate again.

Cobra Kai Never Dies - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: While Daniel speaks with Cole at the car sales lot, the window of the truck beside them is up and down at least two times between shots.
