Though the death is not shown on screen, a dead possum is shown in the first episode. It sparks curiosity in two sadistic twin boys, who take a reprieve from their vandalistic streak to examine said possum.

In the first few episodes a character is drugged with laudanum (I think? could be a diff drug) which causes him to have retrograde amnesia, and to black out. There is also a small handful of scenes of characters passing out due to shock/surprise or being hit in the head.

The entire season revolves around the presence of ghosts. Though the vast majority appear human, some appear as if they were burnt to a crisp, have a hole in the back of their head, or are disfigured in other ways. Regardless, most spirits are capable of malevolent acts, including but not limited to rape, murder, assault, etc.

Yes. A very scary monster-like ghost clown. It's so brief that the people voting "no" probably forgot about it. It's during a strobe scene and possibly a couple of others. It's the one ghost whose presence is never explained.

SERIES 1 !! (made with the help of emetophobia warnings tumblr).

ep 2 — constance makes ipecac cupcakes and tries to give them to a couple people. only the burglar eats one. the scene comes immediately after a scene where addie is locked in the closet. (At about 32 minutes in, Bianca eats the cupcake and starts feeling the effects. She states she feels sick and there’s a bit of grumbling sound, but the actual act doesn’t start until later. She v*s quite graphically at about 35 minutes in, right after the scene where Addy gets locked in the closet). Gone when scene turns black

Around 34:51. The murderer/burglar/fake patent barfs due to the poisoned cupcake.
//
ep 3 — about 40 minutes in. A man kills a woman with a shovel. After realizing what just happened, another man who witnessed the murder runs into the house and throws up in the kitchen sink. Visuals and sound, scene is super quick. Look away after he gets up woozily and runs into the house.
//
ep5 — about 17 minutes in, Hayden makes a gagging sound, and coughs up blood and what looks like a body part. You see the blood coming out of her mouth, and it sounds a lot like coughing. happens after Hayden talks about how she’s aching for Ben.

23.00 the dead guy in glasses gags and spits out blood
//
ep 6 — after a character takes too many pills tate finds her and takes her to the bathtub where he tries tries make her t* u*. he is successful.
//
ep 11 — around 5.40 minutes in, violet says she’s going to throw up when she’s in the car, however she doesn’t.
