At the very beginning you can see Thomas on four but it looks like a shadow but you can hear it and I found that pretty triggering. But I haven’t watched any further in the books there is a small bit at different points but idk if it’s in the movies cause I’m too wuss to watch further

A character spits out alcohol. In the very first shot a character spits/vomits water. When a character attacks another, saliva drips out of his mouth. Later he spits out something possibly blood before being driven into the maze.
