I don't think it's ever phrased as "someone became an abuser because they were abused" but in this episode it is revealed that one of the abusers of the show has been abused

A mouse is caught in a trap. Annalise calls Wes after finding it, he decides it's suffering and hits it with a hammer. It's close to the beginning of episode 3 of the second season it's called the octopus"

Mentioned throughout the series, but a focus/recurring plot in S2.
**(small) spoiler below**



A main character is shown to be pregnant, and the baby is stillborn following a violent car crash. There is a hospital scene that shows the aftermath, including the baby and the parents’ reactions in the immediate aftermath. I think this is in S2 E14-15

Recurring subplot throughout season 2, including trying to figure out the cause/motivation of the parent’s death. The death scene is quite graphic and although the scenes are quite short, they are repeated flashbacks across multiple episodes.

S3E4 a parent dies, but the parent was not really present in the series and they were very abusive during a main character’s childhood

Honestly all the characters are mentally unwell. In season 4 there a large part of the plot is a court case that focuses on a man who was very violent while in prison. The show approaches it in a manner to show that the violence is connected to the US prison system not treating and directly worsening his already existing mental illnesses.

It's a Mystery show, and they often cut off scenes before telling information, then go back and re-do the scene with the new info. It can also be unhelpful in showing when you're in the present-day vs a flashback vs a flash-forward

There's also a character who struggles with hallucinations at some points

In S02E14 there is an extremely graphic depiction of an emergency c-section in which the baby does not survive. This is a flashback of something that happened to a major character. This character had also miscarried before, seemingly multiple times, in much less physically traumatic ways.
