No, but a character mentions skinning a cat as a child.

There is a lot of forms of gaslighting throughout this show. I believe it's a premise actually. Most of the characters go through things that others don't believe or try to make them forget (e.g. deem them mentally unstable etc.)

A nun says pepper killed her sisters baby and cut its ears off. Spoiler******But since pepper is from season 4 and season 2 happens later in time, we know pepper didn’t actually hurt anyone she was framed and sent there.

Certain drugs are administered to patients to “keep them calm”, that can be triggering to some

Yes in epsiode 7 while Threadson and Lana are in his basement. It's very graphic.

Frequently. Several times during the season people are strapped or chained to a bed.

For all degrading and offensive language used towards the patients (quite accurate for the time in many asylums), I don’t recall the R-word specifically being used

SERIES 2 !! (made with the help of emetophobia warnings tumblr). ep1 — SAFE-ISH! 30 minutes and 46 seconds in, kit eats some food, and spits it back out. Slight g*g sound, however he DOES NOT actually v*. Shouldn’t be too triggering. // ep2 — SAFE! (However 32 minutes and 56 seconds in, a boy is getting an exorcism begins to foam at the mouth. It’s also shown again at 34 minutes. There’s no triggering audio, and I personally did not find it triggering at all.) // ep3 — SAFE! (lana’s girlfriend says she’s going to be sick 1.40 minutes in, but isn’t) // ep4 — UNSAFE! 24 minutes and 54 seconds in, Lana is given therapy to “cure” her. She is shown indecent images of naked women, and is made to v* at the sight of them. Very graphic visual and audio. I found it best to mute and look away. It’s safe to unmute and watch at 26 minutes and 6 seconds, but at 28 minutes and 29 seconds she v* again. The scene ends at 28 minutes and 40 seconds, and is completely safe from that point on. // ep5 — SAFE! // ep6 — SAFE! (15 minutes in they are in a tuberculosis ward, there is coughing but no one v* so don’t get worked up about that. It’s not very triggering I just thought I’d let you know because I was a bit nervous.) // ep7 — SAFE! (mention of v* though. when a man comes into judy’s apartment around 24 minutes in, he mentions she smells of v*- however, you don’t see anything). // ep8 — UNSAFE! 18 minutes in, Lana v* into a bowl. Slight visual/ does have audio. She stops v* at 18 minutes and 15 seconds, however she does keep the bowl in her hands. You can’t actually see the contents of the bowl though. If you want to skip the whole scene, it ends at 19 minutes, and all you miss is kit being in the bed behind the curtain. // ep9, 8, 11 & 12 — SAFE! // ep13 — SAFE-ISH! 18 minutes and 15 seconds in, sister Jude is shown getting a “detox” through a time lapse. In the time lapse she is shown holding her stomach, coughing and g*gging. I didn’t find it too triggering as I don’t think she actually v*, the time lapse ends at 18 minutes and 34 seconds. The rest of the episode is safe.

No, the cops are portrayed as very useless in this show with the characters having to be the ones to seek justice. There's also no unlawful acts by the police that are glorified.

It’s not intense, but there’s a lot of scenes of intense breathing, and an abundance of sobbing and occasionally the monstrous creatures make gurgling and labored breathing noises.

Lots since there are patients in the Asylum with mental and physical issues. Most of the language or behaviour is by the nuns.

There is a whole part of the show with an Ann Frank character who claims the Dr in the Asylum is a N**i who did and continues to do Nazi-related experiments on subjects. A character (presumably semite) who tries to take down the N**i gets murdered.

Racism: a character is bullied/beat up for being in a mixed-race relationship, and it's implied that their marriage isn't legally recognized. Homophobia: a character is committed into the hospital due to being in a lesbian relationship, and at least one episode depicts conversion therapy.

Yes, but most of the time where it’s FULL nudity it’s not sexual. Two female characters are nude, one shown full body from the back, in hydrotherapy scene. Nudity is shown during alien abduction and male nudity is shown when doctor “examines” (looks more like torture) a character, both examples blurr front nudity

Part of the show's premise is around a major serial killer that was involved in very gorey killings.
