Speaking of the arc of season 3 creator director and writer, Josh Heald releveals, We ve always known from the beginning that putting Johnny and Daniel in scenes together is a combustible and hilarious and tense situation all at the same time. And in those early seasons, taking those moments to put them in scenes together, theres these little flareups Oh, they re going to fight Ohthey re going to argue And it gets to a place ofJohnnys coming to Daniels house and it looks like they’re going to duke it out in the backyard.Gradually, we see their relationship get to a place where they have common interests, they have a common enemy and they still can t really make it work. They’re trying at the beginning of season 3 to get there and it once again devolves, and they actually throw some punches. Its only when the stakes get high enough that its almost a last resort for them both to say Were going to fight through this.
We re going to make this uncomfortable thing happen for the greater good. We know that that a moment that you really get once in this series to play the moment that they actually come together. We ve seen other series pull it off. Jon and I watch Billions regularly, and that moment where Chuck and Axe finally sit down and decide Lets do this you re ending the season on a Yeah moment as opposed to the gut-punch of how season 2 ends. We were gradually always getting to this point this apex in the series but we also are always modulating the ins and outs of seasons and, and cliffhangers can have different textures. This one felt right at this time to finally enter this portion of their relationship. Cobra Kai Season 3 will hit the shelves on DVD January 11.
