What Happened to Everyone in Netflix's Kaleidoscope?
Pulling off a heist is already a challenge itself but doing it on one of the biggest and most secured vaults in the whole of US adds to the pressure and hardness of the task at hand to the team of Leo Pap in Netflix's Kaleidoscope throughout its eight non-linear episodes.
"High risk, high return," indeed, the heist they mapped out requires a lot of intricacies that one misstep could lead everyone to their deaths and with emotions getting high, of course, death is quite an inevitable result. Here's everyone who lives and dies in Kaleidoscope, something like a character guide, too.
Who Lives in Netflix's Kaleidoscope?
Not all of them were unfortunate, though. Some of them managed to live another day but dies a few months but some of them survived until the end, living to see the future with the consequences of their past, haunting them of making them flourish.
Hannah Kim Lives A Quiet Life With Her Daughter, Lily Kim
Being the woman behind the heist within the heist, Hannah Kim gets to live her dream life -- one where there is peace, safety, security, and happiness, especially bearing a baby girl she named after her mother, Lily. The three dachshunds of Ava are also with her, so yes, the dogs are alive.
She made it out, unscathed, and she could have even earned the trust of the Triplets. Liz Kim, her adoptive sister, remains alive as well, and without the help of Liz whom Hannah planted at the mail room of SLS, Hannah's plan wouldn't have worked.
Graham Davies a.k.a. Roger Salas Lives But Will Spend 20 Years in Prison
He may have lost everything including his family, business, wealth, and the trust of everyone around him, he is lucky enough to still be alive after everything that has happened. After being busted for a jewel he stole with Ray 25 years ago, he lives to see another day but behind the bars. He left his family, a wife and a son, in the outside world.
The Triplets Remain The Wealthiest Trio on Earth
Thanks to Hannah Kim, the unsecured bonds of the Triplets are back on their hands and they even got a chance to get wealthier given their insurance coverages following the incident. They still hold the most money in the world and they prove to be untouchables as seen with their encounter with the FBI.
Stan Loomis Peacefully Eats His Lengua
Stan Loomis is among the team who pulled off the heist and while no one among them gets their cut, Stan Loomis is lucky enough to be alive. In the end, he orders lengua from his favorite place and while Judy may possibly leave him, at least, he is still alive in the end with his favorite food.
Judy Goodwin Gets The Money But is Confused
In the end of the Pink Episode, Judy Goodwin sees the car of her husband, Bob, which carries with it ammunition and money from Leo. While she doesn't know where Bob is, she is with Stan, her ex-lover.
With the opportunity to leave the past behind, Judy remains standing at a crossroad, not knowing whether to leave Stan and start a new life, or stay with Stan and who knows what tomorrow brings.
Agent Samuel Toby Gets Heartbroken
Agent Samuel Toby is the perfect example of why is it hard to fall in love with a co-worker who has a dark past. Six months after the heist, he is seen to be packing up the things of Agent Abassi and their supervisor tells Samuel not to dwell on what happened and blame himself because he did nothing wrong.
Who Dies in Netflix's Kaleidoscope?
With so much at stake, all of them had a bounty on their heads one way or another and while others were fortunate enough to still have their lives, death is an inevitable part of the job they entered. Here's who dies in Netflix's Kaleidoscope.
Ray Vernon a.k.a. Leo Pap Has Been Popped in the End
While it wasn't directly shown that he was shot, it was seen in the end of the Pink Episode of Kaleidoscope that Ray Vernon a.k.a. Leo Pap was being followed by a man with a gun and it was seen that the guy took his gun and a gunshot was heard right as the screen turned pink.
The clue on who the killer is was revealed in the White Episode, it turns out that the killer and the son of Roger Salas, Brad, has the same shirt and that detail was highly given importance because it shows that what goes around, comes around, and vengeance grows over time.
The death of Ray Vernon was quite a pain to see considering that he still has some wounds to mend with his daughter, Hannah, and after all, he was already being taken over by Parkinson's disease.
Ava Mercer Bows Down With The Pain of Seeing Te-te Killed
True enough, Ava Mercer loved Te-te so much to the point that she would be willing to be FBI's mole in exchange for Te-te's freedom. Te-te was her nanny, the only family she had when she was sent to the US after leaving her home country.
In the Pink Episode of Kaleidoscope, Bob and his goons killed the fencer of Ava, to get to the location of Leo and Ava, somewhere in the woods, and when Bob and his guys arrived, while Ava took one of them down, Ava, Te-te, and Leo were all held up and tied up.
As they try to escape, Te-te was about to smash a pot on Bob's goon but when the goon woke up, he immediately fired his gun killing Te-te. Ava was furious but she got a misstep, the goon fired first killing Ava. This angered Leo who stabbed the goon multiple times but that wasn't enough to bring Ava nor Te-te back to life.
Bob Goodwin Finally Gets His Pink Beach Come True, But With His Blood
To the surprise of them all, Bob Goodwin was still alive after the heist after Judy, his own wife, tried to strangle him to death. From the start, Bob was a loose canon and when Judy ran with Stan, Bob had nothing but revenge on his head. However, he's one man who lets his actions speak first before thinking.
Leo outsmarted Bob by sending him to the beach where the FBI was waiting and there, he was shot on sight. As he fell down the sand, it turned pink because it absorbed his blood, similar to the pink beach he was dreaming of having should he had gotten the money.
RJ Acosta Didn't Get To Drive Home
One of the most shocking deaths in Kaleidoscope was that of RJ Acosta, the driver of the team, because there was so much to him only to be killed by one of the people he considered his friend -- a really traitorous act by Judy Goodwin.
RJ wasn't really in the idea of betraying the others so when Bob told him about the change of plans, the kid of the team who was supposed to drive them out shot Bob. Judy saw it all that when RJ had Bob at gunpoint, she shot him leading to his instantaneous death. Worse, they threw RJ's body to the dumpster.
Agent Nazan Abassi Dug Her Own Grave Digging Against The Triplets
Non-verbatim, the boss of Agent Abassi told her that it wasn't right to push on the Triplets further because that spells danger and in one conversation between Hannah and Roger, it was revealed how the Triplets put down someone: you bump into a person and the next thing, you get a heart attack three blocks away.
That is exactly what happened to Agent Abassi who seemed to be too pushy, she flicked the switch of the Triplets which sent her to her death. A stranger shook her hands and the next thing, she is down on the pavement, dead of a heart attack.
Carlos Sujo and His Goons Fell To A Trap
The right hand man of Roger Salas tried to attack the warehouse where Leo and the team were hiding the day after the heist in the Red Episode of Kaleidoscope, and while they already got the upper hand, Judy and Leo outsmarted them as Leo hid behind his pull-up bed, leaving Carlos and his goons dead.
Lily Vernon's Death Started it All
In the Violet Episode of Kaleidoscope, it was shown why Leo Pap was so fixated on vengeance against Roger Salas. It was revealed that they went by the names Ray Vernon and Graham Davies. Ray was married to Lily, a bookkeeper who was being bullied by white supremacists in her workplace, an exclusive club.
Ray and Graham were supposed to rob the auction of the club but it turns out Lily was called by her boss to do some papers. The plan of Ray and Graham failed and to escape, Graham set the place on fire. Unfortunately, Lily was trapped and even when Graham could have gotten to her in time, he walked away.
Ray sat there with fire all around, grieving for his wife, and because of that, he was caught and he had to send Hannah away with Ava for Ava to give his daughter a new start in life.
Witness everything that happened in Kaleidoscope, now streaming on Netflix.
