I don't know exactly what episode, but a character does leave his team for a period of time, without saying anything to a few of their teammates, and one of them calls this character and somewhat confronts him for leaving without a goodbye.

SEASON 2 SPOILERS

sexual violence is a main theme of the show. several main characters are sexual abusers and multiple characters who are victims are intimidated or stalked. the worst of the stalking happens in season 2

season 2 is really distressing because homelander spends it stalking rebecca butcher, living in her house, intimidating her, and lording it over her that she's powerless to stop him

S2E2 (28:30 - 30:20) rebecca begs for Vought to help her get away and is refused (very distressing)
(35:00) homelander intimidates rebecca

S2E3 (7:15) homelander intimidates rebecca

(Spoilers) Homelander intimidates Becca and makes her feel unsafe in her own home; pretty much every scene in which he’s at her house is tense and upsetting. In season 3, there are flashbacks to a main character’s childhood where he and his younger brother were abused by their father.

As season 3 progresses, there is increased focus on how a main character has become verbally and physically violent like his abusive father, to the point of saying and doing things exactly the same way his father did them. Another character who speaks about how his father thought he was a disappointment goes on to call his son the same thing as they fight.

this show is horrible about animal death. a lot of the Deep's sea creature friends die gratuitously in horrible ways just to traumatize him

season 1 episode 4 (skip from 47:00 - 48:30) a dolphin dies

in S1E5 (43:45) there's brief news footage of the dead dolphin

S1E7 (35:30 - 36:45), the Deep tries to rescue a lobster from a grocery store but the clerk stabs it before he can

S2E3 (skip from 37:00 - 40:45) a whale dies
(42:00 - 44:35) the dead whale is shown again when the Seven show up and insult deep and then leave to follow the Boys

S2E5 (32:00) dead horse shown briefly

Season 3 episode 3, the deep eats a live octopus. I’m not sure how graphic it was as I forwarded it myself but judging from others comments, definitely one to skip through. When homelander brings the silver platter out skip around 1 min 30 seconds (can’t say for sure as again I didn’t watch it but that’s how much I skipped when I saw the octopus and it was fine)

Homelander’s basically a giant bully that gets away with whatever he wants because he’s WAY more powerful than anyone else. If someone stands up to him or does something he doesn’t like, he viciously beats them up if not, brutally killing them

sexual violence is a main theme of the show. several main characters are sexual abusers and characters who are victims are intimidated and stalked

i might have missed some but these are the big ones + the borderline cases

season 1 episode 1
22:00 - 24:30 Deep coerces Starlight into sex
32:00 Translucent is invisible in the women's restroom and spying on them while naked

s1e2
37:00 - 38:00 Starlight stops an attempted rape and kicks the shit out of the guys
41:00, a shapeshifter tricks someone into sex blindfolded in order to blackmail him
42:00 homelander watches someone breastfeed through a wall
48:30 the boys put a bomb in transluscent's rectum

s1e3 Popclaw has consensual sex with her landlord but then crushes his head and his distress is very visible

s1e4 Frenchie is talking to a girl in a cafe and she grabs him by the crotch threateningly and painfully, but it's played for laughs

episode 5 Maeve gets drunk and kisses her ex girlfriend against her will but stops immediately

episode 5, 45 minutes in when starlight goes onstage she describes her sexual assault

S1E6, 30 minutes in, Butcher talks about homelander assaulting his wife

S1E7
- the Deep is assaulted by a fangirl graphically onscreen (25 minutes in)
- homelander accuses starlight of faking her rape accusation
- we see survaillance footage of Butcher's wife before and after her assault in a flashback. she gets pregnant and "dies" in childbirth 40 minutes in (the scene is very graphic)

season 2 is really distressing because homelander spends it stalking rebecca butcher, living in her house, intimidating her, and lording it over her that she's powerless to stop him

S2E2 (28:30 - 30:20) rebecca begs for Vought to help her get away and is refused (very distressing)
(35:00) homelander intimidates rebecca
(42:30) Stormfront makes a victim-blaming joke about Starlight's rape

S2E3 (7:15) homelander intimidates rebecca
(16:30) butcher makes a joke about assaulting hughie

To my knowledge there are two explicit rape scenes. One involving the Deep being assaulted by a fan and one involving Doppelganger tricking a man into sex under false pretences for blackmailing purposes while the man is wearing a blindfold

There are many more examples of sexual assault in the show although it's not always as explicitly shown.

season 1 episode 2 hughie punches a wall repeatedly and draws blood (18:00)

episode 6 the super-strength woman breaks Mesmer's wrist when he tries to read her mind (there are visions of her snapping people's necks)

episode 7 (this one is extremely bad), when Hugie goes to confront A-Train he distracts him while Kimiko sneaks up on him and breaks his leg (about 20 minutes in

episode 8, 15 minutes in, Kimiko flees the SWAT guys and breaks several of their bones before she's caught

season 2 episode 1 at 30:00 we see someone's mutilated arm

S2 E3 (51:00 - 53:00) Stormfront crushes Kenji's hands and then snaps his neck while calling him slurs (this one is extremely bad)

In S2 E5 (17:30 - 18:30) Kimiko walks into the shop and then rips someone's face off, stabs, breaks bones, it was bad enough that I couldn't watch it

A few minutes from the end the last episode of season 3, when homelander is in a crowd of his supporters, a protestor is called a variation of the r slur. mute & turn off captions from 57:22-57:24 and you won't see/hear it. the dialogue isn't important so you won't miss anything. (SPOILERS)


if you wanna be extra safe and skip it, a protestor calls homelander a fascist and throws a can at his kid, so homelander lasers the guy's head off and everyone cheers.

A-Train murders his girlfriend by using his super speed to inject her with numerous heroin needles at once. A-Train also abuses compound V (a fictional drug that boosts super powers) throughout the show and ends up giving himself severe heart problems and almost dies of a heart attack because of this at one point.

Episode 4 of the first season features a plane crash with children on board. A little girl holds a Disney-looking plastic baby doll in her arms, and you just keep seeing this girl clutching her doll while the passengers beg for their lives. The child ultimately dies, and you can tell because there’s a heartbreaking closeup of the now ruined doll among the debris from the crash.

Season 1 Episode 1: In the opening scene when an armoured truck is being destroyed, a man gets out of the truck and v*s onto the ground. It is not graphic but still visible.

A young woman suddenly and audibly v*s into a toilet roughly 20 minutes in, however v* is not shown, you only see her knees under a toilet stall.

Season 1 episode 7: A man v*s into a trash can somewhere between 9 and 9:30 mins after running on a track. V* is visible for about a second and very audible.

Season 1 episode 8: A young woman is seen flirting drunkenly with a man at an event. She excuses herself and there is a sudden cut to her audibly V* into a toilet, however v* not shown.

Season 2 episode 6: During CCTV footage, a man is shown v* acid onto a bed. This is sudden and visible through grainy CCTV footage.

Characters are shown being trapped in a room in a hospital and one character decides to open the door. The acid v* man enters the room and v*s towards a man and then on himself. Look away for about 45 seconds to be safe. Graphic and unpleasant to watch.

It's not stated if the character is trans but a shapeshifter character with a female appearance seduces and convinces a man to have sex, only to turn into a male presenting appearance midway in order to blackmail him, playing on the "trap" trope.

During most silent discussion scenes audio is alot more sensitive and picks up breathing / mouth opening noises
Season 2 Episode 7 has an eating scene with lots of slurping

Gore sounds including head crushing and squelching throughout the entire show.
Subtitles also say things like "Sigh (Lip smack)" and such.

Body Dysmorphia Disorder is a body-image disorder characterized by persistant and intrusive preoccupations with an imagined or slight defect in one's appearance. This means that the afflicted person cannot stop thinking negatively about their appearance, or aspects of it. It has nothing to do with shapeshifting.

The Deep has serious body dysmorphia and depression because of his gills, and being assaulted in season 1 episode 7 makes it worse. In season 2 episode 2 he's given a drug that makes him hallucinate that his gills are talking to him, and they give him a long talk about how he has to learn to accept his body the way it is. His distress is very intense.

In S2E3 (44:00) Homelander calls him disgusting and tells him to cover up

Starlight is recovering from bulimia. it's rarely mentioned but she relapses briefly in season 1 episode 1, 30 minutes in, immediately after the lines "they're fucking laughing" "so what are you going to do about it?"

S1E2 40 minutes starlight's manager yells at her because people are mocking her eating disorder on social media

episode 4 in the mall scene butcher makes a passing joke about clothes for anorexics

no autistic character are abused however a variation of the r slur is used at the end of the last episode of season 3. there's nothing visible on screen so if you turn off captions and mute it from 57:22-57:24 you'll be safe and still know what happens. (SPOILERS)


if you wanna be extra safe and skip it, a protestor calls homelander a fascist and throws a can at his kid, so homelander lasers the guy's head off and everyone cheers.

Season 3 episode 2

Homelander talks to a girl on the roof of a tall building about to kill herself (and while she ultimately decides she doesn’t want to, Homelander forces her off the building and to her death anyway).

During the same scene, it’s revealed that Stormfront committed suicide by biting off her own tongue and choking on it

S02E05 - very intense, direct, sudden strobe after hard cut, around 6min mark, right after Homelander shuts trailer door, for about two minutes. There is no epilepsy warning before the show or any ease-in before scene, if not for a friend who saw it earlier and warned me it would give me seizure as there is no time for reaction and closing one/both eyes is not enough to block it - it is INTENSE.

To clarify, the death mentioned in the previous comment is a lie told by a character and the woman didn’t die, however you are still visually shown this death in a fake flashback as if it’s real and it’s not confirmed to be a lie until several episodes later.

A shapeshifter is sometimes unable to maintain their form and reverts to their base, masculine presenting form while still in feminine clothes. This is treated as a joke in some scenes.

In episode 1, Transparent is shown fully naked in the bathroom of the Vought building. While not frontal nudity, we also see The Deep’s nude butt up close. There is also a scene where Butcher and Hughie go into a bar/club and a nude couple is having sex in the air.

Gonna say no but Homelander seems to have an Oedipus complex thing happening with Stillwell in season one where he sees her as a mother figure and a romantic/sexual partner. In season 2 he finds a bottle of her breast milk and drinks it which is continuing to be a weird obsession with milk throughout the show. He is also jealous of her baby for a time, like an older sibling would be.
(SPOILERS)
He had Doppelganger morph into her after her death to enact fantasies with. Just definitely some weird pseudo-incest stuff happening that is worth a warning.

On the last episode of season 3, near the end, one of the main characters wakes up in a hospital, where he asks a doctor "how long have I got?", and the doctor replies "12 month, 18 if you are lucky"

On another episode, we see a child with cancer, where he gets a visit from a super hero, at the make-a-wish program. There is a "joke" about the child wanting to meet a different hero, and was told that he will come to visit the child in a few days, to which the doctor shake is head "no".
