Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Premise of show is very dark and potentially triggering.
  • The show tackles many violent themes such as domestic violence, murders, gender based violence, attempted sexual violence/violations, suicide and serial killings.
  • Deaths in the show are often sudden, unpredictable, shocking, and upsetting with a swift action of violence (axe, knife, gun, blunt object) with bloody aftermath. Camera work is stylized to not directly show the murders (some are off-screen or implied) for most scenes. There are some intense moments, though, where we see the character die and the action that caused it.
