One of the toughest issues for Sam to take care of, she defined, is the frustration, each to her friends and herself. Of course, the ending was predetermined attributable to some unscrupulous bribing, however that’s a part of the enjoyable.
“The ending of season four, she’s feeling like she disappointed more than just herself; she’s disappointing her dad and disappointing her senseis. Feeling the weight of that going into season five, that’s a lot to carry at any age, but especially as a teenager coming out of her first big tournament like that.”
Mouser mentioned this season is all about coping with the trauma of what occurred to her and studying to handle it in a wholesome manner.
“I think Sam’s got a lot to learn, in terms of how to manage that. I think a lot of times that she manages it through karate, but I think something interesting going into the season is that the trauma is so involved with karate. What does that mean for her next?”
The season may even take care of the fallout from the bribing, which Mouser mentioned has penalties for everybody within the present.

It feels like something I got to have a little tumultuous meet cute with and then figure it out a little bit later as I’ve kind of gotten my feet under me a little bit. Metaphorically speaking only. I still fall over a lot.”
