Is there incarceration?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more with incarceration.
For many, the experience of being incarcerated can be traumatizing, especially in conjunction with other traumatic experiences that can take place within jail/prison. This includes addiction/drug abuse, physical violence, sexual assault/rape, malnutrition, and many other things that prison exposes an individual to. This category would cover depictions of jails/prisons/etc., and depiction or discussion of a character's (or multiple characters) life whilst incarcerated - whether the media takes place in a jail/prison or a character describes their experience of being incarcerated. This is important to warn people who have been incarcerated that media may be set in a place that was traumatic to them, or triggers memories of trauma they experienced while incarcerated.

Three characters have been incarcerated, Maxo only stayed overnight, but Pac and Mike actually had to live in the prison for a couple days before escaping. The real time length of this period was only a day though, not multiple streams.

Yes. Frequent mentions of prison throughout, but never shown (although there is shots in courthouses).
Until season 5, which features an extremely important and lengthy plotline about various people in prison. During this plotline 10 people are murdered while incarcerated. One of the main characters is also enslaved in season 5.

Kind of. If the player character attempts to kill another contestant around other contestants, they will be subdued and awake tied up in the back of the train.
