In season 2, Ziggy acquires a pet duck. He teaches it to drink alcohol and it drinks itself to death. Although the death happens off-camera, we see an upset Ziggy holding its empty collar and, shortly thereafter, its body left slumped in a corner of the bar.

This show deals with the drug trade, and there are depictions of drug addiction throughout.

You would be hard-pressed to find at least one episode where drugs aren't used.

At least two people's throats are slit in season 2 at the least. One is shown, the other is found post-mortem.

A character is murdered by strangulation and his death is passed off as suicide, this is clear to the audience but the characters believe it was suicide and talk about it as such. Several characters unintentionally overdose. A character unknowingly consumes heroine laced with rat poison and dies as a result. A character attempts to hang himself in a police interrogation room but detectives intervene and he survives unharmed. No characters are shown or discussed successfully committing suicide.

Lmao the show takes place in the Baltimore hood with a huge majority of poor Afro-American people so yeah, the chances to see Black people getting murdered are actually quite high.

The series lacks a traditional ending, many characters are shown to continue on their paths - "the game is the game, always" and many are left worse off than at the beginning of the series. There is little sense of closure and the main antagonist is still active.

In season 2 a character is shown driving drunk, he sideswipes a concrete column. The car is shown to be damaged but the character is unharmed. He then gets back into the car, backs up, and attempts to make the turn a second time. He crashes harder this time, further damaging the car, but is still unharmed. Later in season 4 a careless police officer causes a collision resulting in minor damage and no injuries.
