Watch the heist episode first

Sure, you may have been told at the start of watching Kaleidoscope to save the finale as the last episode, but where’s the fun in that? A lot of details will be missed and there is no knowing the origin story of any of the heist crew.

Order: White and then whatever you want!

In reverse
