Published 08/11/2022, 3:30 PM EDT

If one thing Netflix’s nostalgic show, Cobra Kai is appreciated for, it is one hundred percent its diverse choice of characters. Through the depiction of everything each of these teenagers goes through, the series attempts to shed light upon the psyche of humans that makes them unique individuals. One such interesting character is Tory Nichols, who joined Cobra Kai dojo back in season 2. Within a short span of 2 seasons, she has grown a fanbase for herself. And from what we know of her till now, she sure is Cobra Kai for life. An assertive girl, with an exact amount of temperament and a will to fight anyone who angers her. She soon became a favorite of sensei Kreese as well.

However, in the season 4 finale, we saw her following a different trajectory. After achieving the victory in the All Valley tournament, it shattered her to know that Silver paid the referee off and bought the win beforehand. And her sensei going behind bars for something he didn’t do just added to her trauma. Fans even speculated that after all this, she might even leave the dojo in season 5. But is it so? Is she really leaving the Terry Silver-led karate school? And if so, how would Silver keep her under his influence? Let’s unwrap it all.

How will Terry Silver manage to keep Tory if she leaves Cobra Kai?

Although the season 5 teaser trailer made it clear that Tory isn’t leaving Cobra Kai anytime soon, but she might eventually. Knowing the two biggest reasons the season 4 finale gave her, no one could stop her either. However, she undoubtedly is the best player in the dojo, and it will certainly be a huge loss for Terry Silver. But the man knows his ways.

Even though she is unaware that Silver set up Kreese, she should still leave because of the absence of her mentor and Silver’s dishonest behavior. Silver’s riches and clout may be to blame for her refusal. Silver may use his wealth to maintain Tory’s silence and loyalty to him, much like he did when he used it to alter the results of the All Valley Karate Tournament. It goes without saying that Tory’s mother is in such poor health and financial condition that she needs to work to pay her medical bills. Tory might feel compelled to accept Silver’s offer to pay them if he tried to placate her by doing so.

After all, if Tory told the LaRussos what she had witnessed on the tournament day, that wouldn’t be good for him. Her word would be a wonderful place to start, even if they couldn’t independently show any wrongdoing. Giving Tory what she really wants might help him prevent her from developing into a problem. Also, with Robby gone, Tory is Silver’s best chance. He would try to improve her fighting skills and make her crueler. Hence, keeping Silver from changing and attempting to escape his control may be Tory’s hardest challenge in Cobra Kai.

Do you think Tory Nichols will be the one to bring Terry Silver’s dirty schemes out? Or will she join him in his maniac schemes? Let us know in the comment section below. Stream Cobra Kai season 5 on September 9 only on Netflix.
