(see Violence and Gore section)

Many disturbing scenes. People are shown dead or dying. Some domestic fighting. Many deaths including suicides are intense. The violence is heavy, scenes will frighten young viewers. A few 'jumpy' scenes. Many characters attempt suicide, some don't go through with it but these scenes are intense. Season 4 was the most intense and dark season of the series, a lot of bloody violence and torture scenes were shown. Background music also enhances the intensity and frightening tone of the scene.
