Review: Cobra Kai Season 5 | Daniel Finally Beats Terry Silver Everything You Need to Know.

Season 5 of Cobra Kai delivered the most ambitious and action-packed finale of the Karate Kid series to date. We analyze every important event and explain what it all means.

Cobra Kai

Cobra Kai was created by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg and is based on Robert Mark Kamen's The Karate Kid film franchise. The series reimagines the "Miyagi-Verse" story from Lawrence's viewpoint, as he seeks redemption by reopening the iconic Cobra Kai dojo, reigniting his old rivalry with a now successful Daniel LaRusso. 

Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Martin Kove, Yuji Okumoto, and Thomas Ian Griffith reprise their iconic roles from The Karate Kid franchise in Cobra Kai.

The Cobra Kai season 5 finale not only saw Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) kill the snake's head, Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith), but it also closed a chapter of many Cobra Kai's stories since season 1. 

The season 5 finale of Cobra Kai was a multi-layered and immensely complicated jigsaw puzzle, but the larger picture was that Terry Silver and his intentions to build Cobra Kai into a global organization had to be put on hold. 

The slam-bang payoffs of Cobra Kai season 5 included callbacks for fans of The Karate Kid movies but also teased how the plot can continue in Cobra Kai season 6.

How Many Episodes Will Cobra Kai Season 5 Have?

As usual, just like its previous season, this Season 5 will also have 10 episodes in total.

Where Can You Stream Cobra Kai Season 5?

Cobra Kai Season 5 will be available on Netflix, so if you want to watch it (or past seasons), simply subscribe to Netflix's Basic, Standard, or Premium plan for $9.99, $15.99, or $19.99, respectively.


Cobra Kai's fifth season differs from the previous two seasons, which premiered at the end of the year, with a September launch and an ending that, for the first time. Season 5 feels less organic than what has come before it because things feel a little too neat and tidy near the end. 

Having said that, in classic Cobra Kai fashion, there are still plenty of crowd-pleasing moments, an abundance of heart-melting sentiment, and some joyous use of franchise legacy characters that contribute to these ten "summer breaks" episodes being the most triumphant.

This is the first post-All-Valley Tournament storyline since the show's second season, therefore there is the aftermath to deal with, regrouping and recouping to contend with, and healing to occur. 

Terry Silver, Thomas Ian Griffith's wealthy and evil character, is now in charge of Cobra Kai and has grand plans for the dojo's expansion. Meanwhile, Peyton List's Tory and Mary Mouser's Sam are both saddened by their championship match, despite Tory's success.

Both Ralph Macchio's Daniel and William Zabka's Johnny are depressed because their respective dojos must now close, but while Johnny, who is just happy Kreese is in jail, sees it as a fresh start, Daniel becomes obsessed with taking down Silver, who, as we all know, is always a few steps ahead of poor Daniel.

Furthermore, Johnny is now more forward-thinking than ever, having to consider the future in ways he never expected while also attempting to make apologies to his son Robbie (Tanner Buchanan) and surrogate son Miguel.

Cobra Kai, as usual, is full of drama sparked by simple misunderstandings, but it also earns the hell out of its reckonings and reconciliations through inventive tricks and rewarding Exchanges.

It's great that Daniel and Johnny can now operate as full mates and see the true benefits in each other's styles (this season has a fun twist where the two seem to switch roles for a while). 

The same can be said for Daniel and Chozen (Yuji Okumoto), with Chozen's role shining the brightest this season. Chozen becomes a much more rounded character in Season 5 as Daniel's weird "ride or dies" against Terry Silver, whether he's serving the drama or the comedy. 

Even though this year's offering is firmly rooted in the events of The Karate Kid Part III (there's even a new villain brilliantly sprung from a throwaway line in that film), Chozen remains a lingering part of the second film that feels worthy of exploration here.

It didn't suffice that Daniel and Chozen it was last left each other on "good terms." One of the series' strengths is that it insists on making them BFFs. It's a truly amazing M.O. for a show to have, and perhaps the greatest way to remember a film series that relied on dumb teenage anger for action. 

This message is meant to pervade the remainder of the show, including Robbie and Miguel, Tory and Sam, Dallas Dupree Young's Kenny and Griffin Santopietro's Anthony, and so on.

There's even a brief conversation in Season 5 between LaRusso Auto staffers Louie and Anoush... just to make reparations a few minutes later. Whether it takes years or minutes, the theme here is always understanding and forgiveness.

Okay, maybe not when it comes to Terry Silver, this year's star villain. Yes, you may have to come up with Daniel making some massively dumb mistakes for a while since he can't understand how Silver is leading him to self-sabotage, but things will smooth out and people's heads will be set. - and not only Daniel's alone.

He learns from his mistakes, but others start to cope with him as they see the true, serious damage Silver is capable of causing.

 There is no surprise that Sean Kanan's, Mike Barnes returns this year, but Cobra Kai has more surprises up its sleeve, from cameos to callbacks.
