Very bad jumpscares in S1E3 (in police station setting, visions seen by the main policewoman) and S1E4 (whilst policewoman is driving in car and looking in her rear view mirror). These are extremely scary and upsetting. Caution needed. All show graphic hanging.

S1 E3 is probably the first very bad incident, though there are instances before and after this. Minutes later in the same episode, a body is shown with physical evidence of suicide
