In Season 2 Episode 11 (Holly), Offred sees a black wolf several times, but it does not attack her and no harm comes to it despite Offred having a shotgun with her in some of the scenes.

In one episode a handmaiden known as Ofglen gets fed up and managed to steal a car at a market place, she drives around in circles while other handmaiden's cheer for her. Guards try to stop her and Ofglen drives over the head of a guard lying down and his head is squashed; it is shown in full detail and is quite gory

A character is taken away after mouthing off. She is later returned with her eye bandaged; another character explains her eye has been removed. She is seen in multiple episodes with a scarred and missing eye.

Season 2 Episode 13 Serena and a number of wives propose an amendment to the council that girls be taught to read the Bible and Serena reads from the Bible to make her point, resulting in one of her fingers being cut off. Although the actual mutilation is not shown.

There is a suicide by overdose near the end of season 3. We see her dying and the funeral, but not the body.

In season one a woman is hanged as punishment for being in a relationship with another woman. The other woman is spared but watches the hanging happen. It is shown in its entirety on screen.

Two characters are executed by having them jump into a pool with restraints and heavy weights. You see them drown in full detail.
