Prom is a right of passage, but it’s also the biggest headache. You’re spending a lot of money to get dressed up, get drunk, and hope that you avoid loosing your virginity, because I assure you that it is not a right of passage, because it’s prom. That’s a wise tale.
But when it comes to prom and you are dealing with the kids from the valley – well, you know that Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do are gonna cause trouble, when they should be shutting their mouths and enjoy their time – being kids.
Tory isn’t sure that she wants to go to prom, but you can see it in her eyes she wants to. She wants to be a part of what is “normal” because everything in her life is so complex. It’s too much for one person, but she’s holding the weight of it all very well.
As Cobra Kai is training, Robby tells her that she should got to prom. Prom would be a tactical move, they both try to convince themselves. Robby says that he can’t go to prom, because he’s no longer a student, but Tory says maybe they will if they go together.
Silver overhears and says if they are going to go, they are going in style. Taking anything from this man would be a mistake, because if there is one thing I am sure of is that Creese has broken Silver and he’s about ready to fly off the handle.
But I am pretty sure that no one recognizes that.
Johnny runs into Shannon, Robby’s Mom, at his apartment. She’s a little scared because Silver showed up at her apartment and gave Robby a car and her a stack of cash. Silver even offered her a job. Doing what? Who knows. But she’s scared and needs Johnny to handle to situation.
Johnny says that he will handle it. Not sure how well that is going to go, but it’s good to see him stepping up.
Sam and Miguel are going to the prom together and they look absolutely beautiful. They are adorable and I LOVE how the match. My prom date was a dick and wouldn’t do that. But then again, it was all last minute, so I shouldn’t hate on him.
The families – Miguels and Sam’s get together to see them off. They are all so adorable and I mean you gotta love parents so excited that their kids are going to prom. I loved that Johnny even came over.
Prom seems to be going well, Sam and Miguel having fun. Eli and Demetri don’t seem to be having a great time, but when Demetri’s girlfriend shows up, his night turns around. I feel for Eli, who doesn’t feel like he’s okay without his hair. But I think it’s a great time for him to learn that he is more than his hair. And he’s also more than his past mistakes.
Sam and Miguel spend the whole night staring at Robby and Tory. But what happens is that Robby and Tory start to ignore the tactical of it all and only pay attention to each other.
At the afterparty, Sam and Tory of course get into a fight. Miguel tries to stop it and then Robby sees him trying and thinks he’s fighting Tory, so he gets involved. They all four are fighting and it’s just a lot of chaos.
But then as Sam and Robby are fighting, she says to him that he broke her heart too. And I felt that. I felt the pain that she must feel and definitely felt the pain that Miguel showed. I mean can you imagine loving someone and then seeing them still love someone else.
Sam and Miguel automatically have a wall put between them, one that you can feel. But hey, just cause Sam and Miguel are having a bad night, it doesn’t matter to Robby and Tory. Their night ends on a well… lips falling on lips sort of situation.
Johnny, meanwhile went to confront Silver and Kreese, and ends up getting his ass kicked. He is defeated and that’s a lot for him to take – especially because at this point he feels like he’s letting Robby down again. He can never be there for Robby when he needs him, even when he tries.
It’s Miguel that finds Johnny drunk and bruised on the ground. He helps him get to bed and Johnny is saying all the nicest things and Miguel feels like he’s got a Dad. You see the joy in Miguels face, thinking he’s finally found the father that he’s been searching for. The father that Miguel has always wanted. Sure, Johnny isn’t perfect, but the thing is that Miguel can accept that. He’s accepted Johnny for who he is.
Johnny says that he tries to be good, but he knows he sucks at being a Dad. But Miguel tells him that he is not doing bad at all.
And when Johnny says to him, that he loves him – tears rise in Miguels eyes. He tells him that he loves him too. But then Johnny says the word he didn’t expect. Johnny calls him Robby.
And that stabbed Miguel through the heart for the second time that day. It felt so painful to see Miguel break. All he’s ever wanted was a father and he felt like he had it and then in that moment lost it.
You could tell that everything in them was going to change that moment. Johnny didn’t know it, but Miguel did. And he’ll never forget that day.
- Stingray is back and he’s as annoying as ever. He wants so badly to fit in, but he doesn’t.
- Stingray throwing the afterparty is weird.
- I felt bad for Miguel when Sam told Robby he broke her heart in front of Miguel.
- Anthony is a little shit, but Daniel snapping his iPad was a little too aggressive.
- Vanessa telling the LaRusso’s that they are partially to blame for how Anthony is – alone, misunderstood, and de-prioritized over his sister – which has led him to electronics and social media was a hard slap in the face for them.
- Silver savagely beating Stingray up was just WRONG.
