Hell and sinning is mentioned throughout the series but in season one there is witch hunting and a trial towards two women who are perceived to be witches. The trials theme is to proof them to be witches from hell and a lot of people want to sentence them to death. (Spoiler) one of them is sentenced to death when she tries to save the other by showing a vaccination mark and claiming it to be "the devils mark". The other women is freed by a man while public is focused on the woman with the mark who is implied to be burned later.

There are abusive parents many times throughout the show, but most scenes containing this topic are brief and there is not a lot of domestic abuse happening on screen, rather than it being talked about.

In season 5 (i think) a women goes to her imprisoned abuser and talks to him. I don't know if she really forgives him or just talks to him to tell him she accepted what consequences she is facing from the abuse, but the theme is definitely there so that could be triggering.

The master of the 2 indentured boys abused his Wife. After he suffers a stroke, she becomes the abuser and tortures him because he cannot retaliate. The acts aren't shown on screen, but you see his infected wounds, gangrenous wounds, and several blackened burns from repeated torture. You also see her try to strangle him with a rope in an attempt to kill him.
At the end of the episode, Jamie asks him to blink once for yes and twice for no, and asks if he would like him to take his life to end his suffering. He says yes.

In season one the main character is beaten with a belt by her husband as punishment for running away and putting a group of people in danger. He apologized later and she makes sure to threaten him to never do this again as well.
In another season (I think 2 or 3) Jamie orders another man to beat him with a belt as a punishment in front of many people which he does.
Many times people are whipped/flogged throughout the show, mostly as flashback and mostly Jamie.
In season 6 Malva is beaten with a belt by her father.

A Buffalo is shot at, and a snakes head is chopped off with a knife after multiple attempts, timestamp 08:00-08:40. Buffallo fate unknown. The snake is obviously CGI, as the graphics aren't great, kindly. This personally broke my immersion and I wasn't saddened but it may trigger others. The Buffalo however I found triggering as an animal lover. At 36:00, until 37:05, a Buffalo is on screen and after some time is shot dead.

There is constant mention of rape. There are graphic, LONG depictions of attempted rape, rape by coercion, violent penetrative rape, rape of both adult men and women AND of children. There is an attempted rape in the first 30 minutes and it's all downhill, 24/7 rape, from there. If rape is an issue for you, I HIGHLY suggest you DO NOT WATCH this show at all. I forced myself through 1 season because I thought I could handle it and I was invested in the characters. Now, I've had nightmares and intrusive flashbacks for nearly a month - and I hadn't had flashbacks for over a decade prior to this - so suffice it to say that this show is EXTREMELY triggering for anyone who has or has ever had PTSD related to sexual violence or a history of suffering sexual violence in real life. DO NOT WATCH!

The finale of Season 1 is known to be one of the most graphic rape scenes in a series. Commenting because no one has mentioned that it’s man on man, and is also a brutal torture scene. Also as a whole, almost every main character is this series is sexually assaulted.

Near the beginning of the episode, a soldier abuses a sex worker, then douses the woman with alcohol and sets her on fire. She stumbles around screaming for a while as men laugh. It's pretty upsetting. Another man finally intervenes and puts out the flames with his coat, but by then it's too late and she dies.

I would absolutely classify what happens to Jamie’s hand in the season 1 finale as body horror. His hand is crushed and nailed to a table. This only barely cross the line, because (SPOILER) his wife is a nurse and is able to fully repair his hand. Jamie is also branded by the villain, and this is again later reversed by him asking his friend to literally cut the brand from his skin. A lot of what is initially horrifying is later repaired, which is likely why people voted “no.”

When Taran MacQuarrie is hanged.
He doesnt instantly die from the neck break.
He is seen somewhat still alive but slowing dying. Its not in all very almaring more sad and realistic. A last shot of his kicking legs being held as he passes to death is seen.

Not in the traditional, horror movie sense, but there are scenes that come out of nowhere that can frighten some viewers. For example, at the start of 2x02 Jamie fantasizes about stabbing Randall, this is very sudden as the viewer doesn’t even realize this is a dream at first.

(I think in season 3 or 4) a character sees another have gay sex by accident. She didn't know that he is gay before that, although the character plays a role sometimes throughout the show and is already known to be gay before this scene by show-watching people and some few characters in the show.

Not actual self-harm but the cuts on Jamie and Claire's wrists for the marriage bond in 1x07 are shown and they look exactly like self-harm cuts--horizontal across the wrist. It's only a split second shot though and the context is positive.

Lots of squishy sounds as part of injuries and surgeries. High-pitched discordant noises meant to indicate emotional tension. Infants crying. Lots of audible breathing and kissing. In season 5, I also noticed some chewing sounds but they were relatively mild. Haven't seen season 6 yet.

Fergus tries to kill himself by slitting his wrist in 6x03 but Jamie rescues him in time. Young Ian considers suicide in 5x08 when he takes Claire’s hemlock, but Roger stops him before he can really try anything.

In season 1, Colum asks Claire for assistance in ending his own life.

I haven’t noticed any slurs, sorry if this isn’t 100% accurate though. A main villain is revealed to be gay though and people react in varying degrees of disgust and/or confusion.

There are three characters openly attracted to men, at the time of writing this 9/2020 two are dead and one is alive. Both of the dead individuals were also fairly evil. Two tropes in one.

In 5x09 Jamie faces amputation after his leg is bitten by a snake and acts like loosing his leg is worse than dying. He makes Claire swear she'll let him die rather than amputate him to save his life. It could come off as offensive since Jamie’s brother in law, Ian, only has one leg, and Jamie’s adopted son Fergus, only has one hand. He does get called out on it by Young Ian.

Throughout the show, Fergus is also made multiple times to feel lesser of a man because of his missing hand when other characters (or he himself) make disparaging comments about his disability (3x10, 3x11, 4x11 and more recently 6x01 and 6x03), and society at that time could be considered fairly ableist. His disability, and the world's general lack of acceptance of it, does make him deeply depressed/suicidal in season 6.

A character does have a crush on his cousin and offer to marry her, but that was common in the 18th century, it wasn't depicted as a weird thing, or in any detail. The cousin is from the 20th century; she refuses him kindly, and things move on. There's also a bit of awkwardness about meeting one's ancestor and finding them attractive, but it's very passing.

I'm not sure why so many people are saying yes, when it's not even over yet. If the show continues to follow the books, then it won't be a sad ending, but even the book series isn't done yet, so...
