The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • In episode 4 a man is disemboweled and tortured, the scene is extremely graphic audibly and visually and may be hard to watch.
  • While the settings are dark and shadowed, a severed head, post-explosion, can be clearly seen; a man is slowly tortured and disemboweled, with his intestines pulled and hung out beside him. In brighter settings, these moments would only just be far more horrific for some expecting a clearer divide between Moderate and Severe level violence.
  • A woman and child are found dead. Pools of blood can be seen at the woman's feet. Blood can be seen on the woman's clothes. The child's body is more obscured in the scene than the woman's. This scene may be disturbing for some.
  • The protagonist threatens to murder a man's family if he doesen't kill his superior via a suicide bombing though the explosion is shown from a distance.
  • Episode 4 contains a scene where a character is disemboweled on-screen. Very graphic, lasts about 2 minutes. This resulted in Episode 4 getting an 18+ rating.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A drug made to counteract the effects of PTSD is a main plot point, no on screen drug use but implied.
