Title: “King of the Narrow Sea”
Directed by: Clare Kilner
Written by: Ira Parker
Release Date: September 11, 2022

Rhaenyra travels to Storm’s End where she meets and rejects countless suitors. She returns to King’s Landing just as Prince Daemon arrives from the Stepstones on his dragon, Caraxes. Daemon says he was named “King of the Narrow Sea” but swears allegiance to King Viserys and gives the king his crown. As the reunited brothers celebrate at a feast, Queen Alicent confides her loneliness to Rhaenyra, who misses their friendship. Late at night, Rhaenyra, disguised as a boy, sneaks out with Daemon to explore King’s Landing; they drink, attend a bawdy play, and visit a brothel where Daemon seduces a willing Rhaenyra, but abandons her before they have sex. Returning to the Red Keep, Rhaenyra seduces Ser Criston. A spy informs Ser Otto about Daemon and Rhaenyra’s exploits. Alicent, overhearing Ser Otto telling the king, privately questions Rhaenyra, who denies having had sex with Daemon. The king angrily confronts Daemon, who seemingly confirms the accusations and proposes that he wed Rhaenyra. Viserys claims Daemon only wants the marriage to gain the crown, then exiles his brother back to the Vale. To avoid scandal, Viserys orders Rhaenyra to marry Ser Laenor Velaryon. The king dismisses Ser Otto as his Hand, at Rhaenyra’s insistence, feeling that Otto has manipulated him for personal gain. The king has Grand Maester Mellos give Rhaenyra a precautionary abortifacient tea.

Meanwhile, Daniel gives up karate and returns to work at the car dealership, upsetting his family, Chozen, and Johnny.

On their second attempt, the students win when they work together to protect the eggs. At Cobra Kai, Silver and Kim split the students into two groups, the boys and the girls, and have two students from each group work together to combat a respective sensei. Tory and Devon are paired up and fail to defeat sensei Kim, while Kyler and Kenny are paired up and fail to work together when Kyler deems himself superior to Kenny. After a pep talk from Silver, Kenny bests Kyler and manages to beat sensei O’Dell by himself.

The sponsors of The Sekai Taikai have arrived at Cobra Kai to talk to Silver. Daniel, Johnny, Chozen, and Amanda also show up and start telling them about Silver’s lies, which leads to a tournament-style presentation to decide which dojo goes into the Sakai Taikai tournament. The tournament committee sees Cobra Kai, Miyagi-Do, and Eagle Fang’s techniques. The tournament committee decides to make the tournament one male and one female from each dojo to fight. Miyagi Do and Eagle Fang choose Sam and Eli, while Cobra Kai chooses Tory and Kenny. Kreese tells Tory to choose her own way on how to take down Silver since he is not getting out. Sam finds the octopus Miguel left on the ground while she is leaving the dojo for the night. Silver teaches Kenny his own technique, which would knock the wind out of his opponent. The tournament is held at Cobra Kai due to their tournament-style mats. Hawk and Kenny have their fight, but Tory realizes that Silver bribed the referee again since no points are going to Hawk. Kenny uses the “Silver Bullet” to knock down Hawk, resulting in an automatic win for Kenny. When it is time for the girl’s fight, Tory disappears from the dojo, which leads to Devon fighting Sam. Sam ultimately defeats Devon. The committee includes both dojos in the tournament. A celebration is held at Johnny and Miguel’s apartment complex. Sam heads to the complex with the octopus in hand when she finds Miguel kissing another girl. She leaves in sorrow, when Tory shows up and tells her about what happened at the All-Valley tournament.

Robby shows up at the Cobra Kai dojo to convince everyone to leave, but no one follows. The adults have their night trying to have a night stress-free with no Silver problems. Using Dungeons and Dragons, Stingray tells the teens about what Silver did to him, but that is not enough evidence to convict him. Silver and Kim put Tory into breaking stone bricks which injures her hand. Daniel learns about how Chozen is in love with a certain woman, who is revealed to be Kumiko. Louie finds Anoush is dating his sister Vanessa and picks a fight with Anoush. Chozen, Daniel, and Johnny decide to head to another bar to have fun.

A despondent Kreese is apparently killed in a prison fight. At the same time, Barnes reveals himself as the one who hijacked the limo, blaming Daniel for the loss of his furniture store. When the three explain that Silver is the one responsible, Barnes convinces Johnny and Chozen to go after Silver with him, leaving Daniel stranded on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. However, Silver and his senseis quickly knock Barnes out and overpower Johnny; after a sword fight, Chozen is seriously wounded and seemingly left for dead. After looking at his physical printout of his unborn child’s sonogram, Johnny is reinvigorated and defeats the senseis with Barnes’ help and gets Chozen medical attention while Barnes steals a painting to cover his destroyed furniture store. Daniel gets rescued by Stingray after he shows up at Daniel’s house, and he, Daniel, Amanda, and Carmen head to the dojo. At the same time, Tory proposes hacking into the Cobra Kai servers and uploading the security footage of Silver’s attack on Stingray to the dojo’s YouTube channel to expose Silver. The kids discover that Silver deleted the video, but Tory instead has them use the footage of Silver admitting his bribery to her. Mitch betrays the group, leading to an all-out brawl as the Miyagi-Do’s and Eagle Fang’s protect Anthony as he works; when Kim attacks Tory, Devon switches sides to help her friend. Anthony successfully uploads the video and plays it on the Cobra Kai training room television, breaking their faith in Silver.
