The Latest Season of Cobra Kai Was Tory’s Toughest Yet, According To The Star

Peyton List, who plays the role of Tory Nichols in Cobra Kai, has revealed that her character faced the most difficult challenges yet in season 5. List joined the cast in season 2, portraying a troubled teen with a fiery personality who becomes a member of the Cobra Kai Dojo. Tory’s storyline has included romantic relationships with Miguel and Robby, as well as an ongoing rivalry with Samantha LaRusso from the Miyagi-Do Dojo, which has made her a memorable character in the Karate Kid revival series.

In an interview with PureWow, List discusses the reasons why season 5 of Cobra Kai presented greater challenges for Tory. In the latest season, Tory had to juggle various responsibilities, such as supporting Kreese in his quest to stop Silver, reconciling with her family, and repairing relationships with others. As Tory’s story progressed over the seasons, it culminated in a pivotal moment that altered the audience’s perceptions and provided List with a demanding role. Read her thoughts on season 5 of Cobra Kai in the following comments:

“[Tory] had some closure from the Silver situation and everything is sort of out in the open, so she doesn’t have to carry all of these different weights, on top of taking care of her mom and her brother and everything else. That was just the most stressful season for Tory. I think she just had to grow up really fast, very quickly.”

What lies ahead for Tory in the upcoming sixth season of Cobra Kai?

Throughout Cobra Kai, Tory has been portrayed as an antagonist who channels her personal issues into karate, causing conflicts in the process. As a result of buying into Kreese’s manipulative tactics, Tory became a devoted member of the Cobra Kai dojo. Nevertheless, in season 5, after Kreese’s imprisonment and Terry Silver’s rise to power, she realizes the flaws in her beliefs and secretly takes action to foil Silver’s plans. In doing so, she manages to reconcile with Sam and strive toward self-improvement.

As Cobra Kai season 6 draws to a close, viewers can expect the resolution of lingering plotlines. One storyline to watch is how Tory adapts to her new life as a “good guy” and thrives. Although she is expected to have a more positive impact on those around her, her short temper may still present challenges along the way. Additionally, Tory may struggle with her loyalty to Kreese as she tries to distance herself from Cobra Kai.

One of the biggest questions about Tory that viewers are eagerly anticipating an answer to is who her parents are. Many fans speculate that her mother may be Julie Pierce, played by Hilary Swank in The Next Karate Kid. While this remains unconfirmed, the fact that Swank has yet to appear on the show has fueled speculation. Other theories suggest that her father may be a character such as Kreese or Silver, or that her parents may be entirely new characters. Regardless of how this plotline is resolved, viewers can expect plenty of captivating stories to come in the highly-anticipated debut of Cobra Kai season 6 later this year.
