A favorite “Cobra Kai” character who got lost is Miguel Diaz (Xolo Mariduena). After winning the All Valley Karate tournament in Season 1, her character took on a different twist.
Last season, Miguel looked set to successfully defend his title with high stakes at stake. However, the men’s division was not the deciding factor in determining which dojo would stay.
Eli Moskowitz (Jacob Bertrand) got his script buyout. However, it was the women’s division – specifically the showdown between Samantha LaRusso (Mary Mouser) and Tory Nichols (Peyton List) – that decided everything even though there seemed to be some corruption on the part of Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith).
As for Diaz, he set out to find his biological father and headed to Mexico. Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) has made it his mission to find Miguel, accompanied by his son, Robby Keene (Tanner Buchanan).
From the trailer, it can be seen that Lawrence will have a hard time getting Diaz and Keene to co-exist.
In fact, in one sequence, Miguel confronted Robby and told him they weren’t friends. A confrontation between the two was also shown and there is this other scene where Miguel will end up fighting some gangsters.
Therefore and as far as Miguel is concerned, these events likely remind him of his old fire and competitive nature. And if all goes according to plan, the former All Valley champion will likely return to his old fighting ways at some point in “Cobra Kai” Season 5.
But aside from Miguel and Robby, there’s a long way to go. It will be interesting to see how this factors into the alliance between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Chozen Toguchi (Yuji Okumoto).
The two were known as rivals in the film Karate Kid Part II before reuniting as friends in “Cobra Kai”. The two have joined forces in what should be an interesting storyline involving Terry Silver.
