Peyton List takes a closer look at Robby and Tory’s relationship

[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for Cobra Kai Season 4.]Conservative (Peyton’s List) and Sam (Marie mouser) had no trouble igniting a rivalry on his own, but their relationship situations undoubtedly increased this tension tenfold.

When Tory first meets Sam in Season 2, Sam had just broken up with Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) and is busy spending a lot of time with Robby (Tanner Buchanan). Initially, Miguel is eager to do whatever it takes to get Sam back, but a spark ignites between him and Tory instead. Problem is, Miguel isn’t really done with Sam and Tory catches the two exes kissing, which causes Tory to go wild and unleash his rage by starting the school brawl in season 2. .


As you might expect, Robby also disputes that Sam is kissing Miguel and the two are even further apart when Robby is sent to Sylmar Juvenile Corrections. When he comes out, Robby begins to see a little more of Tory and in Season 4, that connection blossoms into romance.

At the end of the new season, Miguel and Sam’s relationship doesn’t seem very stable, but Robby and Tory seem to have landed in the right place. But is Robby the right fit for her? Could Tory still have feelings for Miguel that caused the couple to change again? During an episode of Collider Ladies Night, I asked Peyton List what she thought of the current state of Tory’s relationship. Is she with the right person now? Here is his take on the matter:

“I think Robby is a good candidate. I feel like they see each other more than – I think Tory was really in love with Miguel, but the feeling wasn’t as reciprocal or mutual. I feel like he always thought of Sam when he was with Tory, so I would probably advise him to drop that one. Although I think Miguel is just the best character on the show. He is so adorable. But yeah, I think Robby and Tory are really, really cute together. And even when I read their scenes together, I’m just like, “Aw, I really like these two. I mean, maybe not so much at first when they were first speaking, but where they’ve come to, I really think they’re cute.
