My wife and I finished 1-5 last night and plan on finishing the season tonight. Very well done series! I loved seeing the other side of Miyagi Do Karate!

Wife and I finished all 10 episodes tonight, with no regrets, whatsoever. Well just one regret...Wish there'd be more than 10 episodes!! Can someone say Cobra Kai Season...4?? Season 3 was far more than what I expected, in a good way.

We did get to finish the season last night, definitely enjoyed it, although like you said, 10 episodes wasn’t enough! Feels like the ending should be more of a mid-season finale... looking forward to seeing who Kreese has called at the end of the season, I have a pretty good idea who!

I'm pretty sure it's Thomas Ian Griffith who plays Terry Silver. Saw many hints of Silver, to think otherwise. In a final flashback, we see one of Kreese’s comrades, Silver, promise him lifelong loyalty, as in the present-day Kreese looks at his photo and gives him a call. You see them both, Silver and Kreese, in Karate Kid 3; Silver makes Daniel's knuckles bleed at the request of Kreese.

Cobra Kai HAS been renewed for Season 4!! No release date, as of yet.

I agree, silver was who I was thinking of. Do you think they might bring mike barns back into it as well? Not necessarily in season 4 but maybe later on?

I saw somewhere that they are making at least 6 seasons. Be interesting to see where they go after season 4 after kreese has been dealt with. At least I hope they put an end to him at the end of season 4...

I agree with your assumptions as well. I think that is who "Pony Tail" was.

Overall, I really enjoyed this season. I think Netflix has taken it in a good direction, and the development of the characters has been fantastic.

Definitely, I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a series this much. liked what they done with Hawk in the end. Gave him a little cheer when he switched sides and backed up his binary brother.

I did feel bad for Robby, look forward to seeing what they do with him.

I agree with you, Ashworth. I like the direction Hawk went, but I'm really struggling with what's going on with Robby, especially considering how all that started in season 1.

Does feel a massive shame that all that hard work they did to develop his character has been for nothing now that he is worse off than when we first saw him, he is just hurting I guess, he should have realised why Daniel done what he done and I was waiting for him to see that, wouldn't surprise me if they make him betray Kreese right at the end at the cost of his own life, or something like that. I think it would now be difficult for them to have him switch back and help the goods guys...

Also I read somewhere that the actor that played Terry Silver has turned down the offer, saying that he is no longer an actor... not sure how much truth in that there is. but wouldn't surprise me if they have made us think that it will be Terry Silver as he would be the obvious choice... Maybe after Karate kid 3 barnes stayed with Silver, worked and trained under him, if silver isn't returning maybe he died, Kreese looks at his picture, remembers Mike Barnes and calls him up...

Just a few thoughts...

Good thoughts, for sure. It'll be interesting to see how that develops. With the penchant for bringing back the same former characters, a re-casting doesn't seem to be in order, so you might be on the right track.

As far as Robby goes, I think the ultimate goal here is for him and Johnny to reconcile, as opposed to him and Daniel. At this point, that seems so far away from happening.
