Cobra Kai Season 3 is almost upon us. The new year is bringing a lot of goodies, the infamous rivalry between Miyagi Do and Cobra kai being one of them. With things ending on a cliff-hangar note, the plot has thickened. Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence are at a crossroads. Lawrence has lost the Cobra Kai dojo. LaRusso will be traveling to Okinawa to unravel the secrets of Miyagi Do. In the process, Ralph Macchio who plays LaRusso in the show, claims never before heard secrets regarding Mr. Miyagi will be revealed.
Cobra Kai is more than just a show about two rival man-babies. It’s a show that pits the past of two fighters locked in an eternal struggle. Daniel LaRusso is a family man. he runs a successful business and has a loving wife, daughter, and son. He has ‘balance’ as Mr. Miyagi taught him. And yet he is always drawn to a fight with Cobra Kai. demons from his past still haunt him. Johnny Lawrence is now a broken man. His estranged son and wife do not want anything to do with him. Lawrence struggles to accept his fate. Johnny, in turn, chases after the demons from his past. But little did we know, Mr. Miyagi also had some secrets of his own. These secrets will be revealed in detail in Cobra Kai Season 3.
Mr. Miyagi’s newly revealed secrets will reveal critical chinks in the armor between Daniel LaRusso and Mr. Miyagi’s relationship. There are things even Miyagi did not want LaRusso to know, lest their relationship be affected. This will bring in an all-new perspective on Daniel LaRusso’s life, something that has been covered in a pretty one dimensional aspect in the series so far.
In an interview with EW, Ralph Macchio says and we quote:
“LaRusso learns things about Miyagi-Do and things about Mr. Miyagi that he did not know, and neither does the audience know,” Macchio said in the interview with EW. “So we are both, the audience and LaRusso, learning things about Miyagi-Do and Mr. Miyagi that we did not expect. That’s something I’ve been asking for from very early on in making this show.”
He went on to add:
“There are certainly elements of that, that we got to see through Johnny Lawrence’s journey in Seasons 1 and 2, you got to learn things about him that you didn’t know, but you felt like, ‘Oh, we know everything about Daniel LaRusso and Mr. Miyagi.’ So we were always looking for that, and in Season 3, we get that.”
Now that the trailer for Season 3 have revealed Kumiko and Chozen are returning, past secrets will be revealed when LaRusso travels to Okinawa, Mr. Miyagi’s native place. There Macchio’s character will probably uncover secrets that might shape the way of Miyagi-Do back in the United States.
Let’s see who strikes first this time.
