Episode 125: Cobra Kai - S05E05 - Extreme Measures
1:18PM Jan 18, 2023
Whoa, just curious. Welcome to Just curious media. This is let's talk Cobra Kai. I'm Jason Connell.
And I'm Sal Rodriguez.
All right sound we are back for another episode.
Yeah. And very excited that we have a higher rating on this episode higher than last time, because last time was rating. Last rating was a little disappointing. It was weak,
not the episode, the rating. Yes, but this episode was pretty strong. I gotta say usually these mid points. This is episode five of season five extreme measures. But before we get into it, so I want to give a shout out. Last episode, you'll recall, there was kind of a call to action for our fans to leave some five star reviews on Apple podcast. And they have spoken. And we have seven new five star reviews. And I thank you so very much. I'd rattle off the names go through them. But we're gonna save that for our next Fan Appreciation episode. Wow. Yes, post season post season of season five of Cobra Kai. And I want to say one of the seven though, which is really touching to me was the person that left the one star. So kudos for coming back around. I didn't even know you could do that. Yeah. And now I understand their point. But hurting the show is no one wants to do that. And I just commend everybody for stepping up. And the more we get this, the better. It helps the show stand out in the blue ocean, the sea of podcasts. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Yeah, pleasantly surprised. I mean, I I guess I'm a little jaded in life that when you ask for something, and people actually do it, and then do it as a group. Yeah, it was, you know, wow. Wow. It's very touching. So thank you, everybody who was able to do that recently, five star review for us. Thank you. Yes,
absolutely. And also good news is good news. Good news. As you know, dog gon launched last Friday, so it is live. And I'm just happy that it's out there. It's very touching to my heart. The first episode is out there talks about myself and Nico. It's more about Nico. It's just my story of him my dog last this year. And it's going to be the episode that I can use to bring other guests on. So it's out there now live, you guys can go check it out on any platform dog on our just go to just curious media.com And it's on there with all the other podcast and episode so and you're on their cell. So kudos to you for joining me. And that one is now out in the podcast universe.
Thank you for having me, Jason and I have a very special. I mean, not that our all of our shows aren't special. But I mean, this one is different. It's different in spirit and nature from just curious media as other shows.
It is I noticed that when we were prepared for it when we recorded it. And when I edited the episode, I was like, Whoa, this is a whole other thing. And it was very emotional for me to edit that episode. So it's out there and it was just a big hurdle. You know, if you will, it just it took a lot, but I'm very, very proud. So just wanted to share that with our fans.
Well, I'm very excited about it and very excited to hear upcoming episodes. Because you got your work cut out for you, Jason, this is a very, I would say well, almost like you have to handle it with kid gloves in a way because it's a very sensitive topic. So believe me I look forward to to seeing and hearing what doggone has to offer.

So, Netflix brings us Cobra Kai Thank you Netflix. Every episode in the season came out on September 9 2022. This is season five, Episode Five extreme measures. Sounds like a movie in the 90s like a Seagal movie.
Or a Jeff Speakman.
Oh yeah, exactly. Was he the perfect weapon? Is that who that well he was the perfect
weapon. I was an extra imperfect. Well,
there you go. And the rating for this particular episode, you hinted at 8.7 on it. Strike you well deserved kind of deserves the nines. But listen, that's a whole other thing. The synopsis for this episode is Daniel leans on a friend. And frenemy tensions come to a head from Miguel and Robbie. A familiar face returns. Whoo, I can't wait to get into it sell
these synapse. synopsize are almost like a fortune cookie. It's like totally. They just give you just enough but not much
a little bit. So I'm ready to jump into the scene by scene breakdown. If
you're ready, I'm ready, man. Let's
okay. So we open at Cobra Kai and Tory is possessed and she is hitting on one of these modern padded dummy not the wooden dummy back in the day. And she's hitting it hard south. But then out of nowhere, a favorite character arrives.
Yeah, yeah. Yeah. In walks, Stingray. In the middle of class, unreal, some people are taken aback and kind of looking over at him, right. Yeah, I think I would imagine that there were plenty of people in that class who didn't know who exactly well, there's so many new people. Yeah, growth phases in there. Yeah. So then he walks in silver announces him. There he is. The man himself. an exemplar of everything. Cobra Kai stands for loyalty, discipline, inner strength. After former sensei creases cowardly attack. Most people would have crawled into a hole to hide. Not Stingray. He stood tall. demanded justice. That's Cobra Kai. So let's give him the welcome he deserves.
Yeah, Stingray is back and he looks like a shell of his former self. I have to say, You know what he went he's been demoralized moralized. He loves something. He was beaten now he's on the hook with silver. And he's still dealing with that. I can't even imagine what that was like being in a coma or whatever. He was in for a while. But all that said. Happy to see him back.
Yeah. Oh, I love seeing Ray. Yeah, he's fantastic.
So silver and Stingray talk. And silver. We learn got him an apartment.
Yeah, nice place.
And what else did he get him?
He got him the Cobra Kai car that Johnny Lawrence used to drive the 2009 Dodge Challenger to back and
black back in black. Yellow
and black. Oh yeah. When they were when they were painting it That's right. Yeah. Beautiful car. Very fun. Any fan would love to drive this car?
Yeah. So we know silver is funding stingrays lifestyle now because Stingray was living with his sister at one point in times right? Yeah, he took the BT now comes the rewards for taking said beading and putting crease away.
Well, what do you call it? You call it hush money. Right
very hush money. I'm gonna take care of you. You just shut your mouth. Yeah, right. Don't let the law in on this.
Yeah. Plus, it took a beating. So there's that? Well, you
know, like, like you like we mentioned going into this. I mean, he Silva literally almost killed almost he because Stingray was in a coma. The implication is he almost died. zilver almost killed Stingray. Terrible.
No, absolutely. So now we're at Olive Garden. And chatnels. No, I
like how the rough module name appears right at that very moment. Yeah, exactly. It's just like a combo italiana.
And Miguel and Robbie arrive separately, I should say separately, and check by Johnny. Like, Oh, you're here you're hearing or Johnny's trying to force this friendship, or at least peace. And so no one's happy. But the waiter is fantastic. Yeah, I gotta say he's killing it.
Yeah, he does a great job. I would have loved to have auditioned for
Yeah, you could have been this waiter you would have killed it. Yeah. And I liked that. You know, he's rattling off things. He's you know, he's not missing a beat. He's reading the room though. And I can let me give you a second. But he mentioned chocolate lasagna. Now. I guess I have not been to an olive garden in about 15 years. So I didn't know they had chocolate. Oh, lasagna. Are you familiar with this?
I myself haven't been to an olive garden in about, ooh 2025 years because let me tell you this Jason We used to go to Olive Garden as sort of a in anticipation of an upcoming marathon when I used to run marathons in my 20s are how we would do a carbo load at Olive Garden the night before a marathon.
Wow, how about that? Yeah, so we're going back so you don't run marathons anymore?
Well, I would like to, I'd like to garden. I would like to run eat it all off guard. I would like to run a marathon just to eat and
that's the reason yeah, that's the catalyst. Well, despite the great waiter and Johnny's efforts, Miguel and Robbie leaf, they don't even stick around for any of it. They're not even having it at all, so they don't
care about the breadsticks fail for Johnny. I would have at least had a few breadsticks. I'm
pretty damn good breadsticks. I do recall a sister who worked at Olive Garden, but we're going back a long ways. So now we're at the Russos house and Daniel is unshaven, which we saw in the first look photos because you commented on that like when do you ever see Daniel unshaven who is unshaven he's drinking he's just distraught. Sol.
J Jason. I don't know if you've ever stumbled upon a married man whose wife is out of town for whatever reason, right? And you get to see, I swear to you men alone are different than men around women. Yep.
Married men for X amount of time are different. You're right, because outflows just get closer and closer and closer then it's like and she's not just out of town on a business trip. She's mad at him and that's like a game changer. He's still almost
unofficially separated and unofficially, right? She took the kids and left her I mean, what does that she's just
taking a beat but shows and remains positive about Amanda and the family and thank goodness chosen see here. But while he's trying to cheer Daniel up, he discovers what?
There's a newspaper clipping the show has a what a courtroom sketch of Greece, and then a courtroom sketch of Steve. Yeah, but then somebody had written liar. And then what stuck it in their mailbox,
stuck it in their mailbox. So it says local since a found guilty and it's written by Nikki Blasi. B la si. Two years prison sentence. We learned two years for this. Raymond Porter sting rays last name. Now we know the whole name. Judge Harold T stone. So I kind of zoomed in to the article. And it was a real article, not like the Karate Kid, Part Three, where they just kind of toned it in. They borrowed an article. Cobra Kai gets it right. So that was the judges name, says liar. And then there's an address. Do you want to say the address?
Sure the address is 808 Prospect Street. Now Jason, it doesn't specify Hermosa Beach, but you declare Hermosa Beach.
I looked it up and the only thing that came up in Los Angeles area was her most of Beach, California 90254. So I don't think that's where they meant maybe they did mean that. But the place that shows up on Google Maps is not Raymond's house, because they probably shot it in Atlanta. But for whatever reason, that's what pops up when you type that in.
Well, Jason, I have you know, my eldest brother, the oldest siblings of all my siblings, a firefighter. Currently, the firefighter, newly retired newly retired Wow. Lives in Hermosa Beach, so lives near this address, got the tats. He does plenty of tests.
That's awesome. Well, thanks for your service. Older Rodriguez. So yeah, that's where they're setting this. We don't know. But we know that Silver's flipping the bill. So now we're in a rammed and neighborhood. So no palm trees. Of course, it could still be cheated for California being in Georgia. But we soon learn. We're at Amanda's parents house. And so we meet Amanda's mother. Joanne, played by
Rochelle Carson. Begley, Ed Begley, he's wife,
there you go, I see that I'm like, hang on a second. Ed Begley Jr's wife, the actor and so many movies, whom I've met twice and talk to,
and wait a second. He's been to your film festival. Now. He
has not been in my film. I thought he was there. But we were at a another film festival for my first film strictly background Terry polo, no polos, the other actress from Meet the Fockers. Terry bolo is in my documentary. And she has great stories. She used to be in the Groundlings and she you know, you've met Terry, you know her where she used to date Bill Murray. She also went on dates with Robin Williams. She introduced them together. They didn't know each other. She's got some stories, man because she grew up in Hollywood and doing the whole thing. And she was an Actress in lots of movies and she looks super young so they they kept casting her so anyway, we went to this festival San Fernando Valley, strictly backgrounds first festival we won Best Documentary, but they had this huge banquet and she's like, Oh, you want to meet? You know Fred Willard, do you want to meet Ed Begley Jr, cheeses bringing these guys over? I'm like, Oh my gosh, he knows everybody met him there. And then I met him on a set that I got access to film my extras on from strictly background, and he was in that movie, but great guy, and this is his wife. So you know, six degrees at play here. If Kevin Bacon
Yeah. But I mean, what are the odds they are because we never met Amanda's never
before never. We've just heard like, oh, the kids are going to my parents house and they're still we don't meet the father. But we now we have Amanda's mother, which is wow,
if you might as well I've had a Begley Jr. as a man.
Still happen, right, that could still have it. That would have been great. Yeah. But then saw if that wasn't enough, a blast from the past because who arrived and I didn't see this coming.
I did not see this coming. I think most of us forecasted Mike Barnes nailed it. You can go back and some people might have even forecasted chosen maybe? Well, I don't think anybody Okay, well, maybe nobody forecasted. Jessica Andrews played by Robin livelite. From Karate Kid three on is Amanda's cousin what? What,
who is also in real life and like Lively's sister and Blake Lively, of course, is married to Ryan Reynolds. So it's like entertainment royalty.
Hang on Ryan Reynolds, who now owns MIT mobile's commercials together. Which Derek? Yes, there's a recent commercial with Ryan Reynolds and Robin lively for mint mobile. It's crazy.
It's nuts. Well, here she is. Cousin Jessica arrives. So this is her art on Joanne. And it's like, Oh my God. It's all in the family. And she arrives Sal with mac and cheese. And she's like, Hey, where's Daniel? Because Daniel, let's not forget, Kevin's mac and cheese 11 out of 10 stars from the Karate Kid. Part Three. He loves some mac and
cheese. He does and he doesn't even need some sliced up winners. I'd like I like sliced up winners and my mac and cheese. Daniel doesn't even need that. And by the way, I just want to be clear because sometimes I can be forgetful. Nobody ever thought for a second that Jessica Andrews is Amanda la Russo's cousin, right? We didn't know this before. I'm
loving the liberties that the writing room is taking because that's a smart play. Like she's gonna go to her mother's Yeah, she could go somewhere nearby Pasadena, or all hombre or anywhere. She could have gone somewhere or Westlake Village or Calabasas. But no, they take her to Ohio, which we learn in a later scene. But think back to the credit card three. That's where Jessica was going to get to go back to Ohio got a boyfriend there because that movie just kind of falls on itself sometimes, but falls in on itself. But yeah, brilliant opportunity to connect the dots and bring her back. I'm just in awe like, Are you kidding me? Is that her? It took me a second to even like process it.
Wait, it's taking me another second to process this Jason and that is that my father lives in Ohio.
Oh my God.
He just occurred to me. It just occurred to me this very moment.
Wait, your father could be Amanda's father.
Wow, what if Amanda and I are our brother and sister.
I'm loving this. So now we're at Johnny's apartment. And so he's been internetting which I'm liking that internet. I like it. And he's looking for a way for Robbie and Miguel to bomb because all of garden struck out. And so this is hilarious what he has done to his place. And please describe.
He's made his apartment, which by the way was recently made nice. It's right, right. Yeah, he recently made a nice yeah, yeah. Now he's made it into an escape room. And by the way, I don't know if you have any experience with escape rooms I know about I've never been to one because what I've read about them, they sound horrific. You You're literally locked into these places. Sometimes they like yell in your face and put you in a box, like horrible stuff.
That's where you draw the line.
No, no, I will not pay for this. I will not pay for this. So Johnny made his place an escape room. He wanted to replicate the Lincoln County War 1878 In Lincoln County, New Mexico territory, which turns out is the plot for young guns to right
yeah, and Miguel recognizes it and he's like we saw this together. So he's been you know, showing Miguel these older movies and yeah, I saw this movie in the theater with my dad actually. But funny.
Yes. Well, you've seen both young guns, too. Of course. I'm sorry, Jason. I haven't seen
but while you need to win, we may cover it on let's talk movies. Actually, I'll drag you in. But while this is going on I need a little bit of karaoke from you. We hear Bon Jovi's blaze of glory which is also aim young guns to
the only part I know is go in down in a blaze of glory. That's all I got. That's all
you need it so hilarious and then this scene ends with Rosa coming in as Billy the Kid
that I love that I love. She's such a good sport. Yeah. And when I ski down a little bit
but I liked that Johnny part of the escape room as he switched his door lock. So if you if you come inside the house and close the door, you can't get out. Like he's locked this place down and the only key to get out of here he puts in the garbage disposal of course. So they're stuck in here, because I think he breaks a window later. But anyway, great scene, but these guys are having none of it Sal, they're just like, this guy.
Yeah, well, not to mention they don't know about. I don't know if you'd call it an ace in the hole on Johnny's part, but neither Miguel nor Robbie know about the bun in the oven.
They do not know yet. So now we're at her most of beach. And Daniel unchosen are on another stakeout. They do a lot of these stakeouts right. You know, they're waiting for someone to show up and we know who that is because we just talked about it but Daniels very depressed still. He's brought that just whole demeanor on this stakeout. And Joseph is trying to you know, cheer him up a little bit. Getting back to usual Daniel and Joseph has some nice words to say. Very Mr. Miyagi, ask.
That's what I was just gonna say. It just occurred to me. Right before he mentioned that is chosen kind of almost adopting the Miyagi role.
channeling it a little bit. It's bringing Okinawa to the show. I'm loving it, man.
I love the wisdom. So chosen says, heart is most essential quality. A man the son knows your heart.
That's the first time she's been referred to as a man dishonored. I like that. I like that's really cute. And then sow who arrives in Cobra Kai mobiel.
Well, just to be clear, if I'm not mistaken, that car originated from LORUSSO auto right.
But it was a gift. It wasn't stolen. Yes, yes.
So yeah, here's Stingray showing in the black and yellow. A Cobra Kai car, by the way, they need to make a Hot Wheels of this they should I want to have use of this car.
And it's kind of funny because he's also channeling Johnny playing the rock music. He rolls up playing Fonzie by Judas, which I didn't know the song, but it's a head banging song, like heavy with Judas Priest. Now just by Judas, oh, I
don't know. Judas, who's Judas?
I looked it up. And I was like, oh, yeah, that's what he's singing and he's singing it. It's like, it's like almost like the movie. Christine. Once you own this car, you have to take on that persona. And it's like, he's kind of he's got that persona. He's the perfect guy to take over the car from Johnny. And now Stingray still singing the song goes into his apartment. And now we see the apartment. It's sleek, modern. It's got all the bells and whistles, a big, oversized Cobra rug. Love it. Beautiful. And so I also love that. Well, because they come up, obviously Daniel unchosen come in, they knock and there's this exchange. And you know, he's getting us questioning Stingray about how you live in this lifestyle. Now, what's going on here? And he's like, oh, yeah, my finances are between me and TurboTax, which I really got a kick out of that line. Right. And I immediately thought back to when Chris was doing the koala Kai commercials for Intuit QuickBooks. Intuit also owns TurboTax. So a nice
way to segue into it owns TurboTax. Also both so it's in the family. Okay, cool. I didn't know that. Nice.
Anyway, I thought that was pretty cool. But a great experience.
By the way, who else caught that reference? I don't think I would have even caught that reference because I didn't know that into it on TurboTax. There you go. Very nice.
And then Sting Ray and Daniel, they're just they're not themselves. Like I said earlier, Sting Ray is just not. Raymond, you know, the guy doing the Caddyshack gopher and making funny jokes and like, Hey, man, you get this reference. Kind of like Chris Farley used to be on SNL like you get all excited. But he's not that guy. He's recovering. And Daniel's not himself. No. And this leads to Daniel just getting a little heated, you know, short temper. Daniel. Pushes Stingray and what does he fall on and break?
Are we led to believe Daniel's a little bit inebriated here, at least at the tail end think so. I think he chose and tried to give him some coffee. Right. But it's entirely possible. This is an inebriated Daniel doing this. Yeah. And yeah, he breaks the PlayStation be up. And Chosun says he's also no Stingray. He is turtle. If pressed, he will retreat further into shell. Yeah, because Daniel is thinking that he's going to like get the info and give
it to me. So yeah, this is when they go on the hallway, they retreat and thank God chosen there again to bring reason to Daniel, this is not going good and good wisdom by chosen. He's just consistently this kind of a great anchor for Daniel and the show. He's really and so as Johnny though there's a stabilizing force happening. While we see Amanda and Daniel go off the rails a little bit.
Daniel needs what, counsel right now. Right? He needs friendship right now. Yeah. Obviously needs that. Yeah. Where would he be right now, if not for chosen.
And he's not wrong about his assessment of silver, although it looks like he is wrong based at the charity auction that happened and what his wife is perceiving. He's not wrong, but he's just losing his wits about him and losing his his magic. The LORUSSO magic is suffering here.
You know, you can lose grasp on reality, like I was, at one point, they're doing lots of commercial development and throw it out and take it. I was gonna go drive to the developers office to throw down in the street. What that what is it? And it took a woman to say, Sal, thank
you. Thank you, Lisa.
yeah, I happens to the best of us. It happens to the best of us. So now we're it. We're in Ohio. We established this because we're at I call it a bar, but I'm gonna call it a bark. Hey, there's a lot of bar and Cades. Now around where there's retro video games, so youngsters can be there. But there's also a bar and food. But here we are. Jessica, Amanda, Sam and Anthony. And they've got the vintage tabletop games, and one in particular. Yeah, that sounds. I love me some Galaga too mad.
Can you hang on? Jason? Can you flip Galaga? Can you get to a million? A million? If when you get to a million on Galaga? The game starts over. You get to a million. Yep. Now, by the way, just to be clear to our listeners. Yeah, I can get to a million or should I say I have gotten to a million which flips the game and resets and you start over again, on a regular standing Galaga. The tabletop I was never good at the tabletop. It's different.
So Jessica is playing it up, showing the kids like, Hey, these are vintage games. And they're like, oh, yeah, people are doing this. And I was like, No, this is the real game. This is not vintage. This is still here and your mother had the high score back in the day, which is great to learn these little things about Amanda now we're knowing her backstory now. I love it. And then saw if that wasn't enough to go out and hang out with her cousin and show the old stomping grounds. High School girlfriends are there. And it's like mean girl sow. This is like straight out of that movie. And we learn Amanda's maiden name, which is Steiner, Steiner. Very interesting. Yeah,
I love it. I love where we're at right now. I do too. I just want to hang out. I really do. I like it.
And later, we learned her nickname from a well documented violent outburst, but we'll save that for now.
Okay, let's do that. Yes. I'm very excited to see
what happens. So Steiners out they have like a beer Steiner.
Why they is German, right? Yeah. Because from beer stein. Yeah, beer stein. I guess it's a German name. Sure, Steiner.
She loves October diner. That Amanda Steiner. So now we're back at Johnny's apartment. And Daniel arrives, and now he's unhinged. So he leaves sting rays. And his plan is like, I got a guy that can help get this thing in motion. I'll go see Johnny. But he's not seeing Johnny from like, last season, or a few episodes ago. This is a more level headed Johnny more than we've ever seen. I would say yeah,
a baby on the way would change just about any person. Any level headed person would be like, holy cow, a baby's on the way. Let me get my shit together. Right. And every person would think
he's got Robin his life now and Miguel simultaneously and a new love in his life. So this is like uncharted territory. For Johnny.
I would say, yeah, he's trying to do it right this time.
So Daniel wants his help. And it quickly realizes this is not the same Johnny. And Johnny can see. This is not the usual Daniel. And he really just asked him like, what's going on? And then it is needed that like you said earlier, he needs a friend chosen is great. But chosen is kind of following his lead and they're trying to go fix things with silver in the valley. But John is a friend. He's a peer, and Daniel shares and it's a touching scene.
Well, I like that we get to see Daniel, I think we've had moments where vulnerable Johnny kind of displayed his vulnerability to Daniel, but I don't know if we've seen Daniel be vulnerable with John Only before, not to
this level. I mean, when they saw Ali a little bit, this is a whole new level that we've never seen.
Yeah. So Daniel shares about Amanda and the kids. Yeah, leaving are very humbling to share that. Yeah. You know, basically your wife and kids left you is what you're saying?
Yeah. And he's having a banquet. Of course, Johnny's got a Coors banquet in the fridge.
What's funny is, I think, in this instance, a Coors banquet sobers you up. Exactly. Now he's on
the hard stuff. This is the this is getting them out of it. Absolutely. So now we're back at the barcade. And Anthony plays Galaga love this. And he's frustrated Sal, because he's also not very good at the tabletop version. And he goes on to say, which is the lair Anthony
says, dammit, the space lobsters have tractor beams. This game is bullshit. Anthony, you get in the tractor beams to get a double shift. I will ship and that's when you kick ass. You need a double ship. And by the way, if nobody ever trained Anthony on Galaga he wouldn't know that he would not know that if he's never
played this before. You don't want to get in the tractor beams if you have your last man. Oh, no, do game over. So I've learned that having that double ship, it just takes up too much real estate. So unless it's like, bonus round, where you can really just go to town. I don't like having that extra ship.
Hang on. Jason, you're telling me that you can get up perfect. On the challenge stage. Oh, no, no, you're perfect. You need those double shifts you do but
the double shifts are only going to last so long. Because once you get to the next phase, you're gonna lose him. So I tend to save my men. But hey, we have strategies and
double ship on Galaga.
I used to, I've changed, but I'm not getting a million. So maybe I need your style. So then we see Sam because she's sitting there on the other tabletop because this the way this lets you kind of sit at a table and she's on her phone. And she spots Anthony getting bullied. And so this Instagram post already has 44.6 1000 views so it's gone Valley viral as she says and it's posted by hyper underscore Piper 42. And does that ring a bell at all?
Well, Piper does but hyper Piper 42
Well, that's her. This is Piper we've not seen this season. Member moons ex girlfriend and in season four got into Cobra Kai. She fought in all Valley. But we've not even talked about Piper, but she's doing an Instagram post.
I have not heard that name in a while.
No, we've not even thought about her. Talked about her. But this was her so call back. They're pouring in Aisha the show for whatever reason hasn't brought her back yet. But hopefully this is a way to bring her back in the fold.
Anyway, wait, hang on. Jason. What's a Dimitris girlfriend's name? Yasmine? Yes, me. There we
go. That's hyper was like the best athlete at the school.
Yeah, I got it now. And by the way, uh, we didn't know that. Anthony being kicked into the lazy river. We didn't know that was on video. Right? This
isn't new. This is what I'm also shocked that Sam can even spot him. He's got the rings on him. All right, because I guess it's you I was
denied and I'll be like, No, not
me. I saw him. But now we're at the bar. I mean, literally, we just cut over because Amanda and Jessica are talking and this is good stuff. So oh my gosh, Amanda mentions Daniels enemies how there's always another one around the corner. It's like a twisted game of Whack a Mole. Now so I know you remember the game whack a mole, right?
I like a good whack a mole game. I do. I like it a lot.
Well, I know the inventor of Whack a Mole. What? The person that invented the game and vented Whack a Mole. Wow. And ventre, Aaron factor who we followed and he's part of, I guess we didn't follow up but he's definitely a big part of our documentary. The Roku fire explosion, which tells the rise and fall of Showbiz Pizza how it was bought out by Chucky Cheese. Well, Aaron factor started rocket fire explosion started the animatronic rock band, and prior to that invented Whack a Mole. Shout out to Aaron factor, great guy and an amazing inventor.
We're hanging on Jason. So you're saying that the person that invented Chucky Cheese invented Whack a Mole?
No, not Chucky Cheese Showbiz Pizza. He invented to be clear the animatronic rock man rock fire explosion, which was incredible. Check out the doc. It's great. And anyway, just a shout out there to Erin because I love the reference. And so Amanda then mentions Terry silver, which puts things in motion. And we learned that well of course we already know Jessica knows very well of one Terry Silva. but we also learn what Sal Jason one
thing I gotta say, you know, if I'm not mistaken Mike Barnes kind of apologized to Daniel Russo. Yep. In the furniture store, right. Does it Mike Barnes owe an apology to Jessica.
Yeah, for kicking her in the stomach. But he's not. How about that hurt? Because he's not in Ohio.
Yes, that's true. He should have sent her an email then. In that case, Facebook, sent her a Facebook message. Yeah. Jessica put Amanda in touch with Daniel, when Amanda left Ohio to go to Los Angeles. Now, we don't know why Amanda went to Los Angeles, specifically, right, Hollywood man. Yeah. Could have been anything. Yeah. But she put them in touch. Which is shocking
to me to know. That means that Daniel stayed in touch with Jessica, but he did not stay in touch with Ali are Kumiko interesting. Now, Jessica wasn't a love interest, not a loving so maybe it was like, Oh, hey, here's that platonic friend that just disappears in the Karate Kid three at the big tournament. But hey, I'll just call her up. And oh, you got a cousin you want me to meet? Okay. And then the rest is history. But now we know the story. It's amazing. But I like this scene. So because they are showing this old footage old footage. Karate Kid part three. It's like, oh my god. There's Jessica right there. And yeah, we know Terry Silver's a bad guy. But it's great to see them back in the day. It's just like, oh my gosh, I look so young. And also this is starting to get through to Amanda like wait a second. Daniels not so far fetched. So crazy. Terry silver is a bad guy. And this is news to her because last time she sold her silver Daniel look like the big bad guy that was pushing him down. Bonds eyes are flying. So Jessica, thank goodness Jessica has this intel which is very important.
And there is a fantastic two shot of Jessica with Miyagi. Oh yeah, it's awesome. In front of Miyagi, these little these little trees. Yes, there's a great two shot my gosh, I would imagine if I were robbing lively Yeah, I would treasure that to shot right there.
It's great. And I used to live by Miyagi little trees. We've talked about this before on that episode when we broke the movie down which is great. See my same breakdown. We did
cover the entire film. Yes, but anyway, I
used to live in a mile and a half from Yagis little trees. Now it was long gone. It's in Highland Park. I lived adjacent to Highland Park that area has really changed but it's funny that house well whatever that is that establishment by the tracks is also very very close. This is Movie insider here for you guys. anybody listening movie fan? The house from Caddyshack Danny Noonan's house. They show him because he was like a Catholic family had all these brothers and sisters very beginning scenes of Caddyshack. His house is there. They shot most of that movie in Florida. But that scene was also right to drive by and like there's Newton's house. So Noonan styles, Yagis little trees all happening over there. Also scenes from Reservoir Dogs right around the corner as well. So Highland Park, this is in the 90s course. Caddyshack was filmed in the 80s of 7980. So that whole scene, you know that area, it's changed so much Highland Park, but you go back and see these movies in the 80s or 90s. Like it looked very different. But it was the backdrop for a lot of movies back then.
Yes. A lot of things have changed in Los Angeles. Absolutely.
So now we're back at Johnny's apartment. And Daniel is pretty funny. He's explaining you know what he's done like if you talk to a man because they're having this discussion, and he is out we found out he is sent some bourbon soaked messages which he's not heard back from Amanda.
Yeah, he's a what a texting incessantly if it's your wife. I guess it's okay. Yeah, yeah, exactly. If they were merely dating, not not gonna be like stalker.
Have you ever sent some bourbon soaked messages in your day? So,
no, I learned my lessons, because by the time we got to texting, I learned my lessons from previous years of just calling. Yeah. Yeah. So no, by the time we got the texting, I had worked that out of my system.
Okay, good. Good for you and good for the ladies. So Johnny gives some sound advice, which I'm loving this Johnny, you know, the nurturing Johnny. But sadly, this is you know who this is? Oh, please, dad, Johnny, dad, Johnny. Had Johnny showed up. But so Daniel then references because he looks across the room and he's like seeing the remnants of this escape room.
I like that. That's the loon doors. Oh, yeah, exactly.
And we learned that Johnny found this out online but not the usual way not by googling not by googling but by goggles. Goggles. When he was internetting and he goggled conflict resolution So we put this plan together. I love how this show works. So he doesn't even tell Daniel everything. It's just like I just tried to put them you know, Miguel and Robbie back together crash and burn. He doesn't even tell the whole story about escape room and this, that and the other, but it's pretty funny. And then Daniel mentions that he has really grown fond of Johnny classic. Not Johnny Depp, Johnny. But Johnny classic.
Well, because Daniel went to the receipt apartments, looking for Johnny
classic. Absolutely. Let's go. Yeah,
let's go kick some ass.
But then they get into this discussion, which I love. And I think it's a talking point for later as well. But go ahead shed some light on this because this is brilliant stuff.
Which part are you talking about? Back in
the day? Yeah. Things may have been resolved had a taken Oh, yeah. Down the three points. Yeah.
If they were to just actually just like had a street fight. Yeah, instead of doing it within the boundaries of the all Valley and the rules and the points and the rafts. Right. Just taking it to the streets. I won't say I'm a fan of taken to the streets. But you know, I think sometimes the streets can be sort of the ultimate justifier are the ultimate Common Ground equal ground? Theoretically?
Yeah. Well, they took it to the beach, and Daniel lost that fight. That was early on, early on,
so I know what hell if they ever did actually have an actual fight again? Well, another actual fight? Well,
they had one at the Halloween dance, but that was far out. Number one.
No, didn't they fight that Miyagi? Dough? Once right in last season was a long talk.
I'm talking Karate Kid. Oh, no, no, I'm
talking about over the years like actually fight on the beach. That would be cool.
They tried to fight in the ring. And it's a three points and they both knock each other out, which was hilarious. Oh, yeah. But I'm just thinking, let's go back in the Karate Kid for just one second, just a moment. And I thought, yeah, that's a good point. Because John even says, Yeah, you only had three points in you, which is true. Daniel couldn't have gotten another moment in that fight. You know, Johnny took one of the head he could have got up and kept fighting. So that wouldn't have worked. But to Daniel's defense, and we've well documented this and the Karate Kid and also the episode where he broke down Daniels run through all Valley and 84 great episode. I highly recommend you guys checking that out. But he fought like six Cobra guys to get to Johnny. Yes. Right. So he overcame so much. I put them as equals. And I'm glad it worked out the way it did. Right. We wouldn't have karate kid had they settled it before all Valley. But the idea is there it's percolating it comes into play later. Hold that. But Daniel, Thanks, Johnny, for the Coors banquet, and for the perspective what she needed because he was rallying the troops, man. You know, guns blazing. Let's go. Oh, yeah. Really what he needed.
Yeah, he wanted to take Johnny Exactly. guns blazing. Yeah,
young gun style. So now we're back at the barcade and Samantha and Anthony talk mainly about this whole bullying thing. Like what's going on here? You're showing up at a viral video of Valley viral video. What is this? And Anthony shares how Robbie had stepped in to stop the bullying at the waterpark. What was the name of the waterpark again,
splash or Rama water adventure?
Yeah, Sunday. So it's kind of nice to see again, I've talked about this before they are talking more siblings getting along. They're not even busting balls here. They're actually like, oh, what's going on? Tell me more. I want to help. I like this a lot. This is really good. They're bonding. They're bonding. Now we're back at the bar just cut over and south we learn Amanda's old nickname because this Mean Girls Crew that went and sat down like five girls from high school have their vendettas and such and what is the nickname they bestowed upon her?
They called her baby ruthless. Not a bad nickname to have I wouldn't mind a name like that
your day job. And you're ruthless. No one probably mess with Amanda in high school.
I bet and by the way, I think it's funny. I mean, you even mentioned the word. Girls, these are women. He's a full grown Oh, Yemen, but they're probably they're like man a couple times a month at least they've been going there. Amanda left she went to Los Angeles hell even a Jessica probably doesn't hang out here yet. These girls it's trivia night. Yeah, they've been there like a couple times a month you know from the beginning.
Good point. But someone comes over the leader of this pack Elizabeth Rooney, we learn her name. And she gives Amanda a new nickname in the moment which is
Miss coastal elite.
Yet another cool nickname.
Wouldn't mind be known as a nickname so yeah, it implies you got some cash, you know? Yeah. Nobody poor has been called coastal elite.
Yeah, exactly. So things escalate and a bar fight in Sioux South I mean I didn't see this coming but I wouldn't say it's your usual bar fight this is mainly like pushing and some holding and there's not a punch thrown yet and actually never is a punch thrown technically, but out of nowhere what happens
I was loving this big time I wanted this to last. I really wanted the scene to last Sam flies in literally Hicks. Yeah kicks Elizabeth Rooney right kicks her out of the way and then they all just head out and run off
Yeah, cuz no one else is there for fighting we Rooney's about to maybe hit a mandate because basically there's so many of them that are holding and some are holding their legs in place. And here comes Rooney because she got pushed, and she's gonna maybe throw a punch and Sam comes in one hit, and they skip daddle. Amanda, Sam, Anthony. Jessica, flee out the door.
Wouldn't it have been conceivable that Sam could like literally kick everyone's ass? Oh, all those ladies. Yeah, all those ladies. She could have just kick all their asses. I would have liked to have seen that. At least I feel like the scene. I wanted to seem to last a little bit longer, more violence. I wanted a little more bloodshed live.
Well, Amanda and Jessica were in awe of Samantha as was Anthony. But we'll get into that shortly. So now we're at La Russo's house and chosen his packing salad because he's heading home. Yeah. Sad. Don't want to see this.
I just want to comment, Jason real quick. We've never addressed this chosen is fashion. Yeah, it's he's got sort of late 80s. It's like I would call it a late 80s Takahama rayon shirts. And you see the belt? Do you get a lot of his belt? Oh, yeah. What do you call that sort of like a woven leather? Classic. He's got that look. Man, that was me in the early 90s. Going to clubs.
He's probably got a members only jackets.
Right and if he wore jeans, he might even like tie them around the ankle and roll Yeah, roll deal roll might do that if he wore jeans but chosen does not wear jeans,
black Reebok high tops, some of those.
He is he's still a little totally ADCs. He's a little Johnny Lawrence, but in the fashion
and a different way. So Daniel is basically surrendering to silver. And he's got to go check on staying right because he won't sleep through the night can't live with himself for what he did. But chosen pack, I'll come get you we'll go to LAX. Well, they don't say lax, but that's where they're gonna be headed. Most likely, let's just find out of Bob Hope or Burbank Airport. But that's what's happening. So it's kind of sad to see it shows us not even fighting, he's packing up. It's like maybe the family and I if the family comes back, we'll come visit you in Okinawa. So it's like, oh, man, I'm a little It's bittersweet here to see Daniel turn a corner, but we're losing chosen, which I don't like. So now we're at receipt apartments, and we hear air horn, and Johnny blows this air horn to alert Miguel. And Robbie and random neighbor comes out. And because Sal, Johnny took Daniels idea, and he's run with it, and that is what?
Oh, well, the idea is just go ahead and fight it out. Right. If you fight it out, maybe you'll get it out of your system. But not the idea. Yep. In other words, so Daniel and Johnny fought in the valley didn't get it out of the system. Robbie and Miguel also fought in the valley. Did they hang on?
Hang on? Yeah, they did. But they did get it out of their system in the Karate Kid because Johnny comes over and gives Lawrence the trophy and so so they did get out of their way. But then over time, Cobra Kai brought it back and then they were on opposite sides. So over time, it took time to the divide to grow again. But yes, these two have never been on the same side. Miguel and Ravi, just once a Cobra Kai wants to Miyagi dough that it flips than once an eagle thing and then the other side's throw salad and that's a big part of it. It's the ally factor. Absolutely. So the plan is to fight it out. And they're just like I but Johnny's not having it. He barks at them. And he puts it in motion.
Also an odd choice because it's not like you're at a park with grass or, or sand. Yeah, it's nothing but concrete. There's nothing but stucco and concrete and metal streetfighter, they are not any Exactly. A safe place to fight.
Yeah. Well, karma is not around. So now's the time. And it's an evenly matched fight. And they have both grown so much as fighters. It's obvious. It's amazing to watch and they're going back and forth. And then it spills into the stairway when Johnny's like okay, boy stairways off limits like that's starting to starting to get out of control. Right? This is his creation, but now he's losing control of it. And then it escalates to the second floor. And then flashbacks begin to hear. Yep. Because there's a balcony. And Miguel is thinking, you know, we're seeing footage from Cobra Kai season one. Miguel is back injury goes over the banister because Robbie kicked him. And so what happens is this thing starts to get sideways.
Well, we're thinking it's going to be a replay, but in reverse. Exactly. Right. We're assuming that Miguel is going to kick Robbie off the second floor. And you know, once you get into, you know, a few feet off the ground. Yeah, yeah, that's getting into deadly stuff. So No, fortunately, Miguel stops, right. And there's a becomes a piece between Robbie and Miguel and understanding what happens.
And they both just kind of ran out of gas. Johnny was right. They kind of had to work through this on their own. And it just so happened, it was this way. I mean, maybe the same would have happened, had the roles been reversed. And Robbie's like, I don't want to repeat history. But it was good to see it in this way. Because it's like tit for tat. They're both very equal fighters. It's nice. It came to this resolution, but they stop and they make peace. And they have this dialogue exchange and wait, hang
on, Jason, since you mentioned I mean, does this not kind of show that Miguel is a better fighter? Isn't that what this implies?
I think if they fight 10 times, it's five, five.
Okay, there we go. Yes.
That's what I think, Okay, I'll go they have this exchange. And you play Robbie, I'll play Miguel here, because it's pretty important. This is them coming together, forming a union a bond that they've never had.
Yeah, it's coming to a, I guess they're both kind of waving the white flag here and say, let's move on with our life. Robbie says, Why do you hold back?
And Miguel says, I didn't get into credit to hurt people. I did it to be badass and find balance. Yeah,
I understand that.
Last time we fought like this. How can we didn't hold back?
I just wanted to finish the fight. I mean, not like that. I just, I had tunnel vision. And I got so angry that I just, I mean, I barely knew where we were. I take it back in a second if I could. I mean, I was the cause of the worst moment in your life. And if it's any consolation, that was the worst moment in my life to I'll take a very special moment. And I'm sad that it had to require such a fight to get to this moment, but it did. It happened. And here we are. So I think now we finally see Miguel and Robbie, given the olive branch to one another.
Yeah, it was very powerful. That's why I wanted to replay it here. Because you see it they both changed in this moment.
Right did have sort of a little bit of Oh, I know a little bit of something in my I live with some of them. Ah,
yeah, cuz we've given Miguel a lot of props. His acting, Robbie was fantastic. And this and you could see it, he was earnest. He meant it. And that was the worst moment in his life, and he has his own demons. And it was really wonderful because it always gets lost in translation. They never really communicate this, but they feel this way. And here it is. Right now they both share. And John is there to watch, which is great to see off camera watching them. And he's so excited to see this finally happen that he accidentally shares
what? Yeah, he kind of lets the cat out of the bag, and he mentions the baby, the upcoming baby. But then I was surprised. I don't know if I was so surprised that Miguel was excited. But Robbie seemed actually pleased and excited too. Because you know what? I kind of feel. I don't know if you've ever felt this way, Jason, but I kind of always wanted a younger brother. I did too. And I kinda always wanted a younger brother. I did. And so maybe in this moment, right, each of them is thinking of the possibility now they may be both in for a surprise when girls Yeah, exactly. But they're maybe thinking hey, this is maybe the brother I never had, you know, so yeah, they're both happy about this. And they
have sisters so they could have a sister. They could.
How about this? I have about that. Yeah, there you go.
But they do. Robbie loves these. Like, this is awesome. And Miguel super excited. And they do a big family hug. It's great. It's a big happy family. So not too cheesy either. It's just right. It's just the right touch. Yeah, reload. Very realistic. So now we're at the Steiner house. And Sam and Anthony recap. The fight.
Is this where they're all eating a white castle for White Castle. I liked seeing that Harold and
Kumar style. And Anthony gives Sam an awesome nickname after seeing her fight at the bar, which was great
John Claude Van Sam,
it's so good. Just say it again. It's so good.
John Claude Van Sam.
I love it. I thought that was so clever. Well done riders.
Good job, Anthony. Yeah,
very good job, Anthony. Yeah. But Anthony, we learn hates chores. But he's learning to be more interested in karate. Because he thinks chores come with it. You know, the Miyagi theory as Daniel tried to have him wax on wax off, and he hires the TaskRabbit. Sure, but it's kind of nice to see he's turning a corner. And also, Sam is not just anti karate, either. She just needed a moment, process and things, figure some things out. And much like every secrets with these four people, for the most part, they're in two groups. Sam and Anthony have their discussion. And now Amanda and Jessica are talking over here. Because they're talking about Daniel and they don't want to talk in front of the kids. Sure. But Jessica shares that Daniel's justified in his feelings and hatred and revenge for silver.
Yeah, I so there's all this backstory. Back with Jessica. You know, going back to Karate Kid three, Amanda did not know about this. No, not nothing. Yeah. And she says, right. Did you say once you tell me about this?
Yeah. It's water on the bridge. Why would it be something that's like, hey, backhoe? She
never thought Terry silver would come back that's in here he is. Yeah, exactly. Nobody forecasted this,
but Amanda understands. She's understanding what Jessica is sharing with her. And she's kind of ready to get home and kind of tell like she's pivoted and have her break and got the intel that she needed. And now we're at Diaz's apartment. I thought we're at Johnny's for a second, but we soon find out it's Diaz's apartment, and Johnny, Miguel and Robbie are literally breaking bread from Olive Garden. That's great. breadsticks.
I want some breadsticks. Now, I want so so I'm in North Hollywood, not too far is Burbank, and there is indeed an olive garden. Is there an olive garden near you now in Rhode Island?
I don't know. I'm not sure. You need to. I think marathons in our future are half a watt. If you're gonna start going to that Olive Garden. Yes. Oh, yeah,
definitely. Yeah, exactly. They
go hand in hand. Yeah, I
need to run a marathon.
So now Carmen arrives. And she loves seeing them all get along. I mean, who wouldn't? Right? And she's like, Robbie, you're welcome here anytime everyone's on their best behavior. And I like it after what we've been through what they have been through. I need this piece for right now. But so she's not sure about the bruises on their faces.
Johnny lets her know that it wasn't him that they did it to each other. I mean, it's better that they did it to each other than Johnny did it to him. Of course, it was supervised. Yeah, it was a supervised I guess it was sort of like Johnny was the ref. I guess Johnny was the ref. Yeah. Of that fight.
So now we're at stingrays apartment. Because Daniel is going over there to make amends, has a brand new Playstation to give Stingray. But so there's no Stingray. Or someone else here. And who is it?
No. And Daniel had good intentions. he or his heart was in the right place. He wanted to make amends. Yep, he realized he screwed up. He was too aggressive earlier. Come back and apologize. Deliver a brand new Playstation, right? Everything's gonna go great. At least the worst that's gonna happen is silver will say I don't want it and then Daniel is on his way. Yeah, Stingray. Yeah, that's the worst that will happen. But no, we don't even see Stingray at all. Nope. There's no Stingray whatsoever. Instead, Terry Silver's there. And yeah, you asked how did he know that Daniel would arrive. He's got
people working all over town he's got who knows? Yeah, he does knows that. But
is there remember though, if Terry silver is able to have somebody burn a furniture store down? Yeah, Surely he's able to have just people spying on people.
Exactly. And he kind of is calculated. He knows people's moves. He's playing chess. So he probably just assume it's a matter of time. But Daniel sees silver. And he basically is surrendering. It's yours. The valleys yours. I want out of this thing. And Silver's kind of it takes a moment. But he's like, your mind is so small. He doesn't want the valley he's got much bigger plans and we know most of them. So he doesn't accept this. The surrender by Daniel Russo. And then silver starts to Natal Daniel. You know, he knows how to get Daniel going. He mentioned Amanda, and then saw the kicker. And you know what's going to come to fisticuffs in a second? In the future. Daniel's own kids will be wrapped in Cobra Kai geese. And that's it. He's unhinged again. Well, you
mentioned a man's wife. You mentioned a man's kids
only so much. Yeah. And then showdown occurs. And it's a great fight.
It is a great fight but you really see how much larger Terry's Oh is
huge. Yes. Yeah, he's a big guy. And not just a great fights happening. The score the music is awesome in the same. It's like a movie. It's wonderful. And then out of nowhere after a couple of hits to the wall and silver moves, what happens to Daniels knuckles?
Boy, I noticed the bloody knuckles even before they we had the flashback, you know, to the bloody knuckles. Yeah, but yeah, the infamous bloody knuckles of Karate Kid three, where Chris says to Terry silver, make his knuckles bleed. Yep. Right when Terry when Chris was getting his massage in. Where was he? Tahiti? Tahiti. There we go. Yeah,
so we see the bloody knuckles. Daniel sees his bloody knuckles. flashbacks to Cobra Kai I'm sorry. flashbacks to the cricket. Yes. Cobra Kai At the Dojo because he is now Cobra guy and he's hitting that wooden dummy that toy was hitting the modern version. But Daniel was beating that thing up with a mike Barnes you know, photo on it, the bad boy of karate. So all that's going through his mind. And silver gets the best of him gets him in an arm lock. I thought he broke his arm. I really did. This fight went back and forth until silver got the upper hand and then does like a front kick to the head knocking Daniel Down Not Out but down and incapacitated. And honestly, I thought for a second How dark is this going? Because now Daniel can't protect himself.
And there's no one to stop Terry. No
one's there to stop.
I kinda I kinda was thinking maybe someone's gonna jump out and Sting Ray, or somebody chosen. Somebody is going to save Daniel. Somebody has to save Daniel. But no, nobody was there to save Daniel. And luckily, yeah, Terry could have went all the way with this.
But he says this is not an act of mercy. He wants him alive. Not well. To see what happens next. This guy is so sinister. I mean, way above Crisco.
Yeah. Do you think maybe Daniel was too emotional in this fight?
Right. I mean, this is just like Robbie and Miguel. I think if they fight, I don't know how even it is. If they fought 10 times. Maybe it's 736 for silver. I think Daniel could get the best of him. He knows some moves from Miyagi dough. He knows the paralysis moves. But yeah, and he also wasn't looking for a fight.
He did not go there prepared to fight at all.
He's had a tough day. He's been all you know, drinking. He's a mess. And here he is in a fight almost to the death. So I just think he wasn't truly prepared. So I'm not under estimating silver. I'm saying hey, we've seen silver best Johnny. But I think that he could lose he can be bested
up to this moment. We've never seen silver beaten by Daniel ever, right?
No, just Miyagi, best. It's only me and Barnes and Chris. Yes. So now we see Tori, and she's speaking to someone and a montage and Susan all give the beats of the Montage. And then you can take Tori's speech, which is also like a voiceover for this montage. And we see Robbie fixing Johnny's door that was done in reverse locking everybody in and silver training at the dojo like in a tank top hitting that same padded wooden dummy. We see Daniel injured in a bed struggling to drink water. And Amanda takes the water glass and is clearly upset. Obviously. Here's her husband, who's a mess. And we see Sam letting Johnny in the front door to LORUSSO house. And there is a mandate chosen and they're waiting for Johnny. And then we see Johnny and chosen and they're ready. So I love that shot of them.
And Tory says, and by the way, we don't know who Tory is talking to. We just yeah, we see her and we hear her talking. We know she's talking to someone Tory says everything was supposed to be better off after the tournament. But it's only getting worse. I'm becoming someone I don't want to be. I'm hiding the truth from someone I care about. I'm lying to someone I fear. And I'm delivering anonymous notes that could put people in danger. There must be another way or at least somebody else out there who wants to be in this fight. Just tell me there's an end game to this. I need to know it's not all for nothing. And the reveal of who we see. She is in jail talking to crease in the visitors area. And crease response to that. There is an end game kid Silver's going down. Only he doesn't know it yet. I can't believe I'm saying that it was good to see Chris I cabling I'm saying that it was good to secret in
silver makes us crave some crazy stuff.
That's how bad silver is that we need crease.
I knew at some point in time that she was talking to Chris I'm sure a lot of people figured it out because it's like Who is she talking to? information? And then it looks like kind of a jail. Well not a jail sale but where they go have people meet? He isn't prison. So it's like a scene from a movie. Yeah, I figured it out. But it's still great to see. Tori is creases pawn. She's the one that put the newspaper clipping in the mail, and putting some things in motion. So back to how did Silva know Daniel was coming to sting rays, maybe crease push that in motion to somehow who knows? We don't know off camera, some sort of tip of the cap anonymous call? We'll never know. But crease his back, baby. He's in jail. But he's back.
Well, I think we've all learned recently after especially people like El Chapo. You can still call shots from jail. You know? Just because you're behind bars doesn't mean you can't still make some things happen out there.
That's true. Well, that's it sounds an exciting episode. Truly extreme measures this episode
and an 8.7 Well deserved absolute well deserved.
That's all I got. That's the halfway mark. We'll come back six through 10 the homestretch as we wrap up, season five of Cobra Kai
