Heavy Spoilers Ahead...Tread Carefully

Netflix’s Kaleidoscope has been making a buzz on the internet as several netizens compare it to Spain’s Money Heist but apart from that, this brand new show in 2023 is a massive success and it follows the story of a massive heist. The creator of the show Eric Garcia brings us a story stacked with eight tension-filled episodes accompanied by a clever plot revolving around greed, betrayal, and several threats. Read ahead to unpack the little details you might have missed in the finale.

What Is The Premise Of Kaleidoscope?

This show is actually based loosely on real events during Hurricane Sandy when $70 billion in bonds went missing in Manhattan. A crew of thieves spearheaded by Leo Pap, played by Giancarlo Esposito, hatch a plot to break into a vault and carry out a $7 billion heist. His crew comprises characters played by Paz Vega, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Jordan Mendoza, and Peter Mark Kendall. Rufus Sewell plays a former thief turned corporate security service provider, and Tati Gabrielle as Hannah, Leo’s daughter. Laid out in a non-linear narrative style, Kaleidoscope might be predictable at points, but it’s entertaining nonetheless.

Each of the episodes in this show was named after a color, and the final episode is called White. So, the first question that people can ask is: was the epic heist successful? Well, the answer to that question is pretty subjective. The money was successfully stolen, and the authorities couldn’t catch the thieves, but Leo’s daughter Hannah decided to intervene in their plan and plans on distributing the bonds back into the income streams of rich people and ensuring that everything falls back to normal. As a result, nobody in the crew gets the money they thought they would be getting in the end except a few thousand dollars for each of the crew members. Now, that can be seen as a failure of the ultimate heist. Leo’s fate was already revealed in the “Pink” episode, and several months after the heist, he can be seen living with a condition that seems like it’s Parkinson’s disease, but he does get his closure as a father who gets what he actually deserves. He was also shown to be shot by a mystery man, and if you pay close attention to the shooter’s attire, you might realize that it's the son of Roger Salas, which means Salas got his revenge anyway. The fate of the rest of the crew members varies as some of them go on lead a decent life, whereas some were shot by the FBI, and thus the exhilarating story of Kaleidoscope wraps up.
