Not the traditional sense of stalking, but many characters are able to be viewed by Dirk Strider, thanks to his influence over the narrative, during otherwise private scenes. This is Meat exclusive.

Jane and Jake's son Tavros Crocker, in the Candy epilogue, is mentioned to be treated like a butler rather than a son by Jane. Tavros is shown to be quite nervous, shy and withdrawn, likely because of his home environment.

Two versions of the character Vriska Serket, who is associated with spiders, appear in the Candy route. One of them appears only briefly in the Meat route.

In the Candy route, John asks 5 year old Tavros if his Uncle Gamzee ever bad touched him, and Tavros says no. Tavros goes on to say that he can see why John asked, since that seems like something that would happen to him. Tavros is abused by his guardians, but the abuse isn't pedophilic.

Jake is very much implied to have been raped by Jane after getting drunk in the Candy epilogue. In fact, one chapter ends with them about to have sex again, with the last line saying "this time, there is no doubt that he didn't say no".

It is implied that a character was coerced into sex/raped after being found already-drunk. Nothing is written explicitly, but it is certain that the characters have sex and it is later considered rape.

Candy has themes of xenophobia (mostly from Jane), albeit in a literal sense against actual aliens, but with very realistic language.

Many of the characters who die are LGBT, but none of them are killed because of that.

It's generally somewhat ambiguous, but both of the routes have a grim tone and neither of the endings are explicitly happy. A few of the individual characters get somewhat happy endings, though.
