What is the Heist All About on Netflix's Kaleidoscope?
Kaleidoscope has taken everyone in a peculiar adventure of having to watch a series in no particular order but there is something common in the middle of all of it: the heist to take $7 billion dollars of unsecured bonds from one of the most secured vaults, if not the most, in the US, from SLS company.
The whole team is set up by Leo Pap with Ava Mercer, their provider of guns and fencer; Stan Loomis, their supplier; Judy Goodwin, their chemist; Bob Goodwin, their safe cracker; RJ Acosta, their driver; and Hannah Kim, their inside man. They are going up against Roger Salas, the owner of SLS.
The heist is nothing simple considering that the vaults of SLS promise an intricate security system but their plan is to take all of the $7 billion unsecured bonds owned by the Triplets, three of the wealthiest in the whole world, all stored in SLS under Roger Salas' direction.
However, not everything is just about the money they would get. While for the others, it is their way to get rich and disappear without a trace, for Leo Pap, it is all about revenge on Roger Salas seen in the episodes set in the past in Kaleidoscope.
See, Leo and Roger used to be good friends, partners in crime, literally. They used to go by the names Ray Vernon and Graham Davies. Ray is the one who does all the cracking of the safes while Graham is the lookout and the one who distracts the owners.
A revenge that dates back 24 years before the heist, in the Violet Episode of Kaleidoscope, it was revealed Ray and Graham tried to rob an auction at a club where it wall went wrong: they had a misstep. Ray left a tool that got them detected by the guards, Graham set fire to the place, and there, Ray's wife, Lily, died.
The death of Lily was just the beginning of Ray's hate on Graham. He was sent to prison because of the failed heist, and more than that, Ray had to give up Hannah, his daughter, whom he asked Ava Mercer to be given a new start in life in an adoptive family, the Kim family.
