[SPOILER] Season 2 involves a child having recurring "nightmares" of a hooded figure, but there is actually someone there. The woman who raised him constantly tries to convince him it's a dream.

Season 1: Religious abuse is a major topic. For example, young Cora is made to blame herself for her sister's chronic illness because she is a "sinner" who accepted chocolate as a gift. There's also emotional and verbal abuse. Season 2: A boy is raised in a cult that contains abuse, though it is unclear how much he is exposed to as a victim or witness. Vague discussion about Ambrose's mother being abusive and neglectful toward him when he was young.

^ The person who said that is mistaken. No Ped in season one. The incident they're talking about is when two sisters are talking about the only man they know, their father (Since they're highly religious and boys aren't allowed, they are curious about male parts) It is not implied at any point that the Father is abusing them sexually or in any way displaying any form of ped. They mention the incident like they saw him on the way to the shower or something similar. It may as well have not been mentioned, as there's no point to them saying that as far as the story goes.

Some people may not consider it excessive, but with an abundance of caution, I'll put this here. There is quite a bit of blood, a gory stabbing, mutilation of the inner arm, a close up on someone being shot in the head, and a loud crunch of someone's sternum and/or ribs being broken.

It is unspecified exactly what kills one character in episode 7, and could easily be interpreted as an overdose due to this characters disabilities causing her to have a lower tolerance.

I disagree with the other voters who said yes because of Marin. She was very affectionate with her best friend and they kissed sometimes but that's because the best friend was gay. Marin was uncomfortable with it -- because she WASN'T gay.
