In case people are like I was and got invested in which specific dogs die or not:
The dog that Tulip adopts from the shelter in season 1 is killed within the same episode (eaten by Cassidy in order to heal his wounds).
Banjo (Denis's chihuahua in season 2) ends up okay and is eventually set free by Cassidy.

Mentionned during the first episodes of season 1
A pedophile (bus driver) explains to the preacher that he has urges about a young girl that takes the bus he drives everyday
We don’t really know if he acted on it but the preacher makes sure he forgets about her

The whole show is fairly wall to wall gory. Steer clear if that's not your thing.

Debatable. Nearly every character in the show is always hiding something, faking something, or pretending to be someone or something they are not. I don't know if you would consider it be gaslighting per se.

Just know everybody's lying about something in this show!

The bus driver is a pedophile. It’s implied that he’s acted on it. The main character had a very abusive childhood, which is explored in flashbacks. A child is working in a brothel in season 4.

One of the main characters is an immortal vampire and he does drugs (and other poisonous chemicals) recreationally all the time. The theme song even has a shot of someone doing cocaine. Lots of drug content in this show.

They show (only for a fraction of a second) a horse getting shot point blank. They show the scene several times. It happens in the Old West flashbacks.

Another horse dies off screen later on in the show, but you see it’s remains and it’s graphic.

There are some dead cows, I’m pretty sure a horse gets shot in the head in season 1 or 2 and in season 3 episode 2 at 24 minutes Jody puts an already dead turtle, rabbit, raccoon, 2 possums are partly shown being thrown into a meat grinder of sorts. Also in episode 1 or 2 of season three a dead gator is shown being skinned.

There is a rape scene that is kinda played for laughs?? Pretty bad taste. It wasn’t carried out with malice, for what it’s worth, but because of a misunderstanding. Still pretty messed up.

The other commenter is incorrect, there are many graphic closeups in the tree full for lynched indigenous people. In addition to those scenes, we see two background characters hang themselves and a recurring character hang himself. Maybe more than that m I don’t remember.

An arm breaking scene in one of the first couple episodes is extremely graphic (it’s the “you’re gonna hear a sound” bar fight). There’s probably many other instances of breaking bones throughout the show (it’s very violent and graphic), but that was the most memorable time.

There is a scene in season 2 (episode six I think?) where someone grabs a sword with both hands and he loses all his fingers. It’s shown in excruciating detail, and it’s shown again and again in trauma flashbacks in future episodes.

Not like, in a super traditional sense. There’s an undead immortal cowboy from hell with supernatural powers that is frequently trying to kill the main characters. He’s kinda like a ghost.

A character called ”Allfather” is a pretty offensive cartoonish depiction of fatness and gluttony played by an actor in a fat suit. He kills people by sitting on them and his weight is often mentioned. He’s not exactly good representation of fat folks.

Hitler’s soul in hell is a character, and they show scenes of him glowering at Jewish people. Also just the fact that Hitler is a character and he’s initially portrayed in a slightly sympathetic light can be interpreted as being pretty antisemitic if you’re sensitive to such things. Spoiler alert, Hitler is actually an asshole, and not actually a redeemable character. There are also neo nazis in the show, but they’re the bad guys and get what’s coming to them. Later on, a bad guy impersonates a Rabbi to torture someone by cutting off his foreskin, which feels pretty antisemitic on that character’s part.

This show isn’t super tactful about these things. It’s pretty blunt and distasteful.

The only specific thing that comes to mind (I’m sure there’s more) is there’s a character who is the product of dozens of generations of inbreeding, and he is portrayed as quite a caricature of the developmentally disabled. They refer to him with words like “imbecile”.

Debatable but I would say it's a happy ending. Jesse and Tulip have a long happy life together. Cassidy's ending is bittersweet but really, a vampire's ending is never going to be truly happy. But Cassidy does die quite content.

There’s a gigantic explosion with a mushroom cloud at the end of season 1. It’s not technically a nuclear explosion though.

Later on in the show there are more depictions of actual nuclear explosions.

If drowning is a trigger, avoid. There are several trapped in coffin at the bottom of a swamp" scenes that threaten drowning. It's the equivalent of "sent to your room" during season 3.
