‘Cobra Kai’ Season 5 theory: Demetri is Hawk’s father

Published 07/31/2022, 12:30 PM EDT

The friendship and family plaster the big crack that the All Valley tournament caused and hence divided the children into groups that are hard-core rebels of each other in Netflix’s nostalgic series Cobra Kai. A sheer blend of emotional punches and great humor, the series has its roots in the 80s Karate Kid movies. Apart from its Miyagiverse trope, it portrays a strong teen angst in the best way possible. There are love triangles, heartbreaks, and even convoluted friendships that makes it a fun to watch drama. And ahead of Cobra Kai season 5 release, the stakes are getting much higher.

Fans are constantly creating theories about what could happen in the upcoming season. They have been also talking about some interesting crossovers and spin offs with Netflix’s other popular show. This time around, Redditers have come up with a rather hilarious one pertaining to the tom and jerry like friendship of Hawk and Demetri. Apparently, some people believe that Demetri could reveal himself as Eli’s father in Cobra Kai season 5! Don’t tell us you gasped already! As the main part is yet to come. And it might as well make sense towards the end of the article.

Demetri could come out as Hawk’s father in Cobra Kai season 5

As we said, a fan believes that there have been subtle hints that Demetri could be Hawk’s potential father who has been posing as a child to get to know his son better. He then continues the joke (at least that’s what we hope) by stating, “it’s possible he smashed Hawk’s mother and has been posing as a teenager to remain close to Hawk without the responsibility of raising him.” 

Season 5 theory: Dimitri is Hawk’s father

Over 4 seasons of this melodramatic series, we have seen their friendship grow, break, and even come to an understanding again. In the very first season of Cobra Kai, we see them as best friends whom the stronger folks bully. Hawk also promised Demetri he will make no friends besides him. But going forward, Demetri mocks Hawk’s sports which really enrages him (utmost dad behavior). He also claims he does not need to learn Karate as he has Hawk (his potential son) to protect him. Later on, when Hawk wishes to join hands with Kreese, Demetri tries to acknowledge him of his wrong decision (finally being a protective father) but fails at it. All this is enough to substantiate the above mockery.

Interestingly, fans take delight in continuing this rather bluff theory, analyzing that Johnny and Hawk could be brothers.
