Kaleidoscope Season 1 Episode “White” Recap

January 1, 2023

The Kaleidoscope season 1 episode recap “White” appeared first on Ready Steady Cut.

We recap episode “White” of Netflix’s Season 1 series Kaleidoscope, which contains major spoilers.

Please note that the episodes are in random order for each viewer of this series. Check out our correct episode order for Netflix’s Kaleidoscope.

As we navigate our way of looking Kaleidoscopewe moved on to the episode titled “White.” The first seven episodes I watched were “Yellow”, “Green”, “Orange”, “Purple”, “Blue”, “Red”, and “Pink.” In ‘Pink’, we followed the team six months after the heist and uncovered everything that happened after the big day. Now we move on to “White,” which is the big heist, and find out everything that happened.

Kaleidoscope Season 1 Episode “White” Recap

It’s the day of the robbery. We see a montage of the crew preparing for the big showdown. The music for this series has been top notch throughout. We also see the FBI watching from afar. Of course, the weather is horrible as a hurricane is about to hit the city. And away we GOOOOOOOOOO!

The heist began as we see the team slowly entering each level of the facility. It’s pretty crazy to see every piece of the puzzle that led to this (if you were paying attention), including seeing the plants that were delivered being used as an essential piece to get through another layer of security. The attention to detail that the writers have used in this series is next level. Everything starts to fall into place exactly as needed to enter the vault. However, the temperature begins to rise, which can trigger everything, but Ava must move to make something explode and bring down the temperature.

Now that they’re inside, they’re starting to move. Hannah calls roger to let him know that everything is fine. He knows the temperature sensor has tripped, but his son calls him. Stan and Bob are able to open the safe and the bonds are in their hands. Leo says to Stan, it’s all there, on the next one, leaving me suspicious of him, knowing they’re not all inside? Do we know they were traded, but was he in on it with Hannah?

We see Ava send the bonds and text the FBI on the 59th floor and now. The FBI arrives at them and Nazan breaks a window to enter the building. Bob is alerted that they are there, but Leo says not to worry about them and move on. However, it seems she pointed them in a different direction, as it was a fake gunshot. Nazan hears something in the walls but isn’t sure what it is and bursts into the walls. They see the fake feeds and pull all the wires causing the camera feeds to go back to normal.

Unfortunately for Roger, he talks to his son while it all happens. As he hugs his son, he sees the camera watching them being robbed and rushes out of his house to the building. Hannah texts Leo to tell him that Roger knows, but Leo tells the crew another charge. The score is so authoritative here you could barely hear Leo and what he said was literally the only thing that made me so angry throughout the show.

We hear Judy say the package is ready, and it sounds like RJ saying check, but we see Hannah picking them up, not him. So, boom goes the dynamite Hannah and her friend unpack all the bonds in boxes and change them to one on top, the rest being paper underneath. What massive twists we see in the “Red” episode, but fully fleshed out in this episode. Finally, we see Bob leave while Leo sticks around for one last crack at the vault.

Unfortunately, the plan goes awry for them because it triggers something Bob knew. Then we see him go up to Judy and tell them it’s time for them to get out. She is reluctant at first but accompanies him. We see them knocking on the door, and he knocks RJ down and tells Judy to get in the truck. RJ gets up and shoots Bob in the ass, and as he gets up and points the gun at Bob, Judy shoots him and kills him. Downstairs, Leo and Ava stay while they send Stan upstairs. As Stan goes upstairs, he sees Judy and Bob together, and Bob starts shooting Stan, and he runs.

Bob is in the middle of the road, calling on Stan to fight him man to man. However, Judy punches him from behind, chokes him and looks like it killed him. Ava goes upstairs, sees blood everywhere, and makes quick judgment as she gets in the truck and drives off. Before she can leave, Nazan stops her in her tracks and tells her that she will send her friend away, but she tells him that she has already left and leaves. Nazan hits her with a gunshot, but Ava is still able to get away with it. She walks past Bob, who is in the middle of the road and looks dead, but after passing him, Bob gets up and puts a pen down his throat to open his trachea.

The ending explained

In the office, Roger’s right arm grabs Leo and knocks him down. Before he can shoot her, Hannah knocks him out with the fire extinguisher. Afterwards, Hannah explains how she changed the plan and took on all the obligations. She made a secret deal with people’s obligations that they would claim from their insurance and move on. And she ends it with “show me where you are brave”. I’m not crying, it’s you. What a scary scene. There’s nothing quite like putting together the two best tracks from this series and Tati Gabriel and Giancarlo Esposito together and delivering next-level acting. I am blown away.

As the episode draws to a close, we see Leo plant the evidence the FBI found at the end of episode “Red” in order to get him arrested.
