Though Cobra Kai on Netflix is all about the karate, it’s also about romances. There’s Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) and Sam (Mary Mouser), Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and Amanda (Courtney Henggeler), Johnny (William Zabka) and Carmen (Vanessa Rubio), and of course, Tory (Peyton List) and Robby (Tanner Buchanan).
Like most high school relationships, Tory and Robby go through their fair share of ups and downs, and are usually on and off. The two were together at the end of season 4, but a lot changes in a little amount of time in the valley.
In Cobra Kai season 5, which is now streaming on Netflix, Tory and Robby are dealing with their own issues. Tory is figuring out what to do after she finds out the only reason she won the girls’ championship at the All Valley is because Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) cheated, while Robby is trying to navigate his newfound relationship with his dad, Johnny.
Spoilers ahead for Cobra Kai season 5.
Once you have an alliance in this show, it becomes your life. And Tory learns this the hard way. Although she doesn’t trust Silver anymore, she’s still part of Cobra Kai, and that means she’s expected to train harder this time around and protect the dojo no matter what happens. So a relationship with Robby, who’s no longer in Cobra Kai, is pretty difficult to maintain.
Do Robby and Tory break up in Cobra Kai season 5?
In episode 4, Robby asks Tory to take a break from Cobra Kai, but she says no. That leads to Robby breaking up with her later on in the same episode because of her decision to stay at Silver’s dojo. Tory is super conflicted about her decision and the pressure of Cobra Kai really starts getting to her.
Fast forward to episode 7, and Tory is set to compete against Sam again in a tournament to prove which dojo is better — Cobra Kai or Miyagi-Do. They do this for the chance to compete in a major championship called Sekai Taikai. But when the time comes, Tory doesn’t show up. Her loyalty to Cobra Kai is dwindling, and Silver can tell.
By the finale, Tory and Sam sort out their differences and team up with the rest of the crew to try and take Silver down. In the end, Tory and Robby make up, sharing a kiss outside of the dojo just as Sam and Miguel rekindle their romance as well. Robby tells Tory that he owes her an apology, and she tells him that she probably owes him one, too.
We’re happy all of our favorite relationships are in good places at the end of Cobra Kai season 5. You can now stream all 10 new episodes only on Netflix!
