Jason, a sibling of two of the main characters, is shown in flashbacks to be high due to his addiction with drugs. He has some relapses through the show but is mostly sober bar the flashbacks. Additionally, further down the line in the show one of the main characters is shown to have a pill addiction.

Not really, but there’s an explosion that makes a character to go blind in 1x02. Aria is burned for a few seconds in 6x18 but is sent to a hospital and gets better.

A cuts Aria's hair while she's asleep, while it's not shown on screen, Aria wakes up and chunks of her hair are on the pillow. This happened in Season 5 I think

Dentist appointments are vaguely mentioned in some episodes, but as far as I remember, no details about tooth damage are discussed in this context. Human teeth are shown (removed post-mortem, no obvious signs of trauma) in 3x02.

Many of the characters that die in the first and second arcs (seasons 1 through 6) are high-school aged. A horror story is told in which a young girl (pre-teen) stabs her twin sister A young boy in a mental institution is said to have overdoses on pills, we later find out his death was faked. A high school girl is murdered and found in her girlfriends back yard, her body is seen being taken by police in a bodybag. She is said to have had her throat crushed with a pipe. A high school girl is knocked off a sound stage and hits her head severely; killing her in the process. A teen girl is buried alive after having her head by a shovel.

The theme of being kidnapped plays a role throughout the series when trying to solve a missing person's case of a teenage girl. In season 5 the protagonists are kidnapped and tortured, this plays a role until the end of the series. One child gets kidnapped but not harmed when a character takes it away to a nearby place to scare another character.

Although not supernatural in nature several characters have visions of a character believed to be dead; other characters hallucinate deceased characters at one point.

A torture device set up by the villain has characters sit at a device with images of their friends and switches, they get told that they must choose one of the friends to be electrocuted or they all will be. It later emerges that this was about the psychological aspect of the torture and none of them were actually electrocuted. In season 7 upon finding a basement of files; the characters discover that when having her sister institutionalised, one character authorised electro-shock therapy to be used on her. Although it is never explicitly stated or shown it is implied that the character suffered due to this. The main villain of the show spent almost the entirety of her life in a mental institution; it is implied that she was forced to undergo electro-therapy While exploring a sanitarium; the characters find electro-shock therapy devices.

A character in season 6/7 thinks she’s seeing ghosts and goes to a mental institution. The main villain makes one of the girls think she’s gone crazy after seeing a dead loved one in the woods during the end of season 3.

A cop abuses his power over a woman and enters sexual relations with her in exchange to stopping an investigation against her daughter. A teacher knowingly enters a romantic & sexual relationship with his student when she is underage. This is discussed as generally negative but with no lasting consequences. They are portrayed as a good couple. Attempted rape in season 1, another character intervenes. In Season 7 there are two instances of somebody being tricked into sex by their partner's twin (under the assumption that that person is their partner)

One character knowingly enters a relationship with their cousin (first believed to be their half-brother) but strongly denies any sexual relations happening. The cousin was not aware that they are related, it is implied that he was sexually attracted to the other person.

Throughout the show there are several ableist remarks, like referring to a psychiatric clinic as "the looney bin", mentions of "driving the short bus", saneist language like "crazy"/"sick" when meaning "evil"/"harmful"/"bad", etc.

One character is introduced via childhood videos and a name, leading everyone to believe the character is male which leads to everyone adressing them as such. Later on the character is revealed to be a transgender woman. Her former name/deadname and he/him pronouns are still often used when discussing the past, she herself does this. In general the character is accepted and not misgendered with malicious intent, the only character described as explicitly transphobic does not address the gender of this person.

Nothing sad actually happens at the end, it's a happy ending. However, like all shows, when they come to an end it is naturally sad.

There are two instances of minor car-crashes in which headlights are seen approaching the side-window, both instances involve the driver being taken to hospital however they have no injuries. A mid-season finale ends with the image of a pickup having apparently veered off the road, glass and luggage can be seen lying on the road and the driver and passenger can be seen to be unconscious. The passenger succumbs to her injuries a few episodes later. One episode contains a scene where a car crashes through the front porch and living room of a characters home, no-one is injured or killed and it is implied that the driver bailed out prior to the crash. An intoxicated character crashes his car into the rear of another, no injuries or deaths. A characters mother is involved in a moderate car crash (not seen on screen) the villain sends another character a text message with the image off the totalled car as a threat. The son mentions that his mother felt like she was being ran off the road and it is heavily implied that this was the case. A character disappears from town and subsequently police arrive at his family's home with his wrecked motorcycle.

This is a theme throughout the show. Characters are seen being buried, one is seen struggling to get out (we can see their hand). Characters describe what they imagine it to feel like.
