[spoilers bc i cant explain this without using names]

any case that includes dahlia in one way or another has implied gaslighting. phoenix is gaslit by both dahlia and iris, and while dahlia is portrayed as a villian, iris is not. its also implied that dahlia was gaslighting another past boyfriend but considering he is a grown adult (in his 20s) and she was 14 and that age gap is never adressed as wrong, i hesitate to say she was the manipulative one there

Not exactly, but a character uses over-the-counter cold medication, and multiple cases involve poisoning.

A character enters a relationship with another while stealing someone else's identity; nothing is shown on screen nor is it implied that the two characters had sex, but this may make some viewers uncomfortable.

There is a scene where a character runs into a fire to attempt to save another character who is on the other side (not in the fire). They are not explicitly shown/said to be burnt - they end up going to the hospital but that is because the fire was on a high bridge which fell apart as they ran on it.

Nothing is directly confirmed, but in case 2, Larry is present at the home of a married woman. Knowing Larry's tendencies, this situation can be seen as suspicious, but his admiration appears to be one-sided and it doesn't seem like there is anything between them.

Aside from the the usual witness ‘breakdowns’ the PTSD of a character is triggered by an earthquake, while not seen during the event he is met soon after, still visibly shaken.

Not explicitly stated to be autism, but a developmentally-disabled man in case 4 is manipulated into doing bad things and is falsely imprisoned. It's not specified if he has any kind of disorder but the way this character is handled could be upsetting for people that have been taken advantage of due to their neurodivergency.

Not specifically "man in a dress," but a muscular character in case 3 displays effeminate mannerisms and sometimes refers to himself as a mademoiselle. Other characters respond to him with derision and disgust.

In Case 4, the defendant was in a relationship with a 14 year old girl when he was 20. Said defendant is portrayed as developmentally stunted, and the 14 year old is portrayed as having faked her feelings in the relationship in order to use him as a tool to get back at her rich father. The defendant still clearly has feelings for the girl, calling her his "teen angel." Your character for the case is canonically disturbed by this.
