Cobra Kai season 4 is officially here and the 10 new episodes are a rollercoaster ride from start to finish. In case you forgot, the season 3 finale concluded with the Cobra Kai dojo breaking into the LaRussos’ home and starting a fight with the Miyagi-Do students.

Sam (Mary Mouser) and Tory (Peyton List) came head to head again, while Hawk (Jacob Bertrand) finally decided to switch sides.

Leading into the new installment, we had a lot of questions regarding the future of the dojos. Johnny (William Zabka) and Daniel (Ralph Macchio) came together for the sake of the kids, seemingly to start a brand new team. So what does that mean for the rivalry between dojos? Well, a lot goes down in Cobra Kai season 4.

Spoilers ahead for Cobra Kai season 4.

Although Johnny and Daniel reunite at the end of Cobra Kai season 3 to work together, that doesn’t last long. As expected, they butt heads in season 4 and decide to work as two separate dojos — Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang. But with the growing threat of Cobra Kai, working together would’ve been their best shot at winning the tournament.

By the All Valley tournament in the penultimate episode of Cobra Kai season 4, “The Fall,” Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) isn’t in the best place. He doesn’t feel connected to his Sensei, Johnny, especially after Johnny drunkenly called him by his son’s name, Robby (Tanner Buchanan).

Miguel doesn’t have a lot of fight left in him, and when he does compete against Hawk at the tournament, he has a seriously frightening accident. When jumping up and spinning around in an attempt to kick Hawk, he screams in pain and falls to the floor.

What accident does Miguel have in Cobra Kai season 4?

It’s a really alarming scene considering how painful the accident seems and how scared his mom Carmen (Vanessa Rubio), Johnny, Sam and Daniel look. The episode then ends, leaving Miguel’s fate up in the air. With his prior accident which left him in a coma, it’s not looking good for him at all. Is he really paralyzed now? Is this the last time he’ll ever do karate?

Fortunately, the scare doesn’t last long. The finale, titled “Rise,” opens up with Miguel getting checked out by a medic at the tournament. He’s told he simply pulled a muscle and he’d be fine. Phew!

But while Miguel is cleared to keep competing if he feels up to it, he decides to leave without telling Johnny or Sam. Cobra Kai ends up winning the All Valley tournament, which is a serious letdown. But it looks like karate might not matter much to Miguel come Cobra Kai season 5, considering he’s got a big plan that’s revealed in the final moments of the finale.

The final episode of Cobra Kai season 4 is jam-packed with action and surprises, and you won’t want to miss a second of it.
