Kaleidoscope's Intense Water Scenes Turned Rosaline Elbay Blue

For some streaming services, it may take some time into the new year to pop off with new programming. But Netflix dived headfirst into that arena by dropping the twisted "Kaleidoscope" on January 1. It's a heist series where a crew attempts to steal $7 billion, but a myriad of factors threaten to upend the operation. 

The thing that's really made the show noteworthy is the fact that the series is meant to binge-watch in any order. There are eight episodes, and for the most part, you can view them in any order, and the story will still make sense. This has led to a lot of online discussion about the best viewing order, with some even suggesting the best order is merely to go chronological

There's a lot to look forward to with the show regardless of what order you choose, including the fact there are several epic sequences where the characters are in peril. As it turns out, one scene was just as stressful to film as it was to watch. 

The following contains mild spoilers for "Kaleidoscope."

The water sequence was pretty uncomfortable

"Kaleidoscope" stars Jai Courtney and Rosaline Elbay sat down for an interview with Collider, where they spoke about working on the latest Netflix hit. They were asked if there were any particularly difficult scenes to shoot, where Courtney responded, "I don't know about a shot per se. There is a portion of the story we spend a large amount of time submerged in water, or a part of the group do. And that got old pretty quick." Elbay elaborated, "There was a lot of damp. There were two episodes of just [constantly] being sprayed and being sort of drenched in water, and there was a lot of shooting, I think most of it was the shooting the outdoor scenes for summer when it was New York winter." Elbay even went on to say that she was turning blue by the end of it. 

It's the most intense sequence, and suitably, it's saved for the show's finale, "White," which depicts the heist itself and is generally said is best if viewed last. In this episode, the team uses a storm to their advantage, taking inspiration from Hurricane Sandy, in order to secure access inside of a vault. With that sequence in mind, it makes sense why Netflix reserves "White" for last in people's viewing orders. It's a good way to ramp up tension and pay off everything that's come before, regardless of what order you received it.
