Infinity's Nana poisons her to keep her sick, and did the same to her daughter aka Infinity's mother. She also infantilizes and gaslights her consistently.

Peyton becomes addicted to alcohol in college. He manages to quit, and from then on makes many comments about how many days it's been since his last drink.

In episode 6 a possum is said to have been run over and is picked up by one of the characters. Said character takes it home, takes out all its guts, and mashes them together. The description itself is pretty nasty and the guts are shown beside the dead body. This isn’t focused on for too long and really the whole thing is like 10 seconds long, but it’s pretty unnecessarily gory.

It depends on what you understand by kid; if it's someone who's still in school, then yes, if it's a child, then no.
He looks like an adult anyway.

In the first episode, after [SPOILER] River dies, Payton is shown to go home and wash the blood off. Nothing graphic is shown, as this is mostly to depict his dissociative state.

River also mentions it as one of the many treatments he tried for his depression, but this is in a dream sequence so it may just be Payton assuming.

Quite a few-two cases involve comatose patients, and the other has the patient fully conscious and aware with nothing attached to them

In the final episode of season 2, Astrid is pregnant and goes to an abortion clinic; it's heavily implied that she goes through with it.

A character says something that is percieved as a homophobic slur and people reprehend her for that. It is a recurring theme during a couple episodes.

Yes, in the pilot. First they show how they tried to kill themselves a year before and then they actually do it, but it is not directly shown.


(You hear a gunshot and see the person that was standing in front of them with blood on them)

Astrid's mother makes a comment that her husband is in love with their daughter. This is neither confirmed nor believably denied. Nothing comes of it, but it may color someone's perception of their interactions.
