The season 2 cliffhanger of Cobra Kai left the ensemble of characters, both young and old, in complete disarray. Johnny saw his protégé Miguel suffer a horrible injury that last saw him unconscious in the hospital with a potential spinal injury while Johnny's old mentor Kreese used this to take Johnny's Cobra Kai dojo from him. Daniel was left to see his daughter Sam hurt and afraid for Miguel. And the final scene saw Johnny drunk on a beach...and receiving a sudden friend request on his phone, unknowing to him, from his old high school flame Ali (Originally played by Elisabeth Shue in 1984's The Karate Kid). While it's still not confirmed if Shue will be appearing in the new season, the official trailer released today teases a chaotic narrative of unexpected team ups, tribulating comebacks, and, of course, karate galore. Check it out below:
