There is a lot to be said about Cobra Kai, but the biggest thing in my opinion – is how anyone thinks that going up against Kreese is ever going to be easy. I feel like the Larusso’s thought that it would be easy to go up against this psycho, but they aren’t looking at the bigger picture.
There is something that is not adding up about him. He acts like he can get rid of all of his students, but still afford rent. Sure, it’s The Valley, but at the same point it’s still California and rent is a bitch.
I feel like the flashbacks of Kreese in Vietnam are supposed to make sure feel for him, but I don’t. He’s a crazy man who wants to turn kids into weapons.
I get having passion – I do. But disrupting kids lives. Yup, hard pass.
But what I am not understanding is that as he recruits these kids, brings them in, he will only take their money if they’re good enough. Ummm, what kids gonna sign up for this shit? I mean if I want to be put down, I will just go online and deal with trolls. But these kids are showing up.
I just don’t understand how Cobra Kai can pay their rent. I also don’t understand why people sign up for this shit, but I also don’t get a Keto lifestyle, cause carbs are amazing.
So, we’ve got new potential Cobra Kai members and they are Hawk’s old bullies. What I am missing here is that does Hawk not get that he’s a bigger bully and asshole? Just curious. But Hawk gets to face his bully and kick his ass, and all I am thinking is that I am hoping that kids don’t think that this is the way to treat your bullies, cause beating the shit out of someone isn’t something we should all strive for.
But let’s return to Kreese. Daniel is back from Japan and Amanda tells him that she’s worried about Kreese. She heads to the cops to try and get a restraining order, but turns out that Kreese has already put one out against her. That man is insane, but he’s smart. Amanda gets pissed and still files one.
But then decides to go one step further. She and Daniel invite the sleezy landlord over for dinner and convince him to evict Kreese. Only we all know that isn’t going over well because he don’t play.
So of course it doesn’t work and it’s war. Why is it always war? Lord, the drama.
I get that Kreese has gone through a lot and like I respect what the man has gone through. But the flashbacks are doing nothing for me. It’s not making me feel for the man, cause he’s such an asshole.
But lets stop talking about him, cause it just makes me anxious and I don’t like him.
Miguel. I love this character and I love that he’s forgiven Johnny. Cause you know I think he needs Johnny. Johnny’s pushing Miguel – which is a story line that I love, but I am also nervous over, because the kid had his back broken and you’ve got Johnny hanging him up by a harness, trying to get him to walk. It should come with a disclaimer.
But the thing I did enjoy in this episode was Miguel helping Johnny with his Facebook message to Aly. It’s so funny to see how Johnny is around technology and also very scary. It’s nice to see Johnny trying with something, and hey, I love Aly coming back into the picture. Having her back seems like a plot propeller versus one that sets it back.
But seeing Miguel and Johnny bond over this was a fun time. It was a good moment and made Johnny more tolerable versus a douche. I think that Miguel has been a propeller for him changing his life and him wanting more to change things with Robbie. But him and Robbie are a whole different story.
Cause he’s put Miguel first and he should be putting Robbie first. But that’s a lesson he’s going to learn the hard way.
Cobra Kai Season 3 is streaming now on Netflix.
