Murphy is a flawed and irreverent woman who just happens to be blind and is the only “witness” to the murder of her drug-dealing friend, Tyson. When the police dismiss her story, she sets out with her dog, Pretzel, to find the killer while also managing her colorful dating life and the job she hates at Breaking Blind — the guide-dog school owned by her overprotective parents.

The dog does NOT die though you think she does at first (implied). What actually happens is a spoiler for the plot but the dog is eventually found safe and sound by the owner.

There should be a way to report the inaccurate votes. This show is IN The Dark. It is NOT the series called Dark. They are VERY different genres.

I don't think people saying yes have the right show. I believe they're talking about the series "dark", not "in the dark"

S2Ep2 around 18 mins and 30ish seconds, there's a dead rat in a locker. Very brief scene, but if you want to avoid seeing it, don't look when they're going to the lockers

There are multiple times throughout this series when characters are tied up/restrained. Most notably in the final episode of S4.

There are three scenes that could be potentially triggering.
1 - A character mentions she has been raped in the past when confessing to a priest she doesn't know who her son's father is.
2 - A character falsely accuses someone of rape, and makes up a triggering story to sell it.
3 - A little girl is nearly raped in season 3, before someone stops it and a fight ensues.

There's an implication of such, nothing direct- but a person is tied up in a burning building

(Spoilers: she didn't, but the audience and characters aren't sure for a few episodes)

It is unknown to be incestuous at first, but it's later revealed to be of that nature.

Later, in the second season, the incestuous relationship is shown once more, but it's revealed to be a dream.

You see the person getting hit from the driver's perspective and then from a side view. It's generally bloodless but still graphic to imply they would of died from the event.

An urban legend is told about someone who drowns (and it is theorized that the season 03 will touch the subject in more detail). Also on one occasion a character believes that a person has drowned but was only relaxed in the lake.
