Fans care about Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) and Samantha (Mary Mouser) and what they have about Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny (William Zabka).

Vanessa Rubio’s ‘Cobra Kai’ scene was considered a joke

Towards the end of season 2, Johnny has been reluctant to move Carmen because the son is his student. He has an 80s style dream series in which he moves and Carmen deceives him.

They didn’t have much time to film the dance, so Rubio figured out what she could do.

“We did some light dancing but usually, they just let us do our thing,” Rubio said. “I know I was wearing uncomfortable shoes so we couldn’t take every move but I hope they get another chance on the dance floor for a second return. ”
