S6E14 a woman is obviously afraid of her boyfriend and at some points in the episode he purposely intimidates her

S8E8 a man is verbally abusive to his girlfriend and sometimes physically intimidates her, she's obviously afraid of him.

Overall there isn't any graphic or violent depictions of abuse in the series but there are some episodes with couples that have obviously unhealthy dynamics and sometimes couples will threaten each other or one person (usually a woman) will be obviously afraid of their partner.

S2 E20: A man is often seen drinking from a flask that he seems to carry everywhere, and not in the context of socialising. Towards the end, we learn part of what he has to deal with emotionally. In the end, we're told that he's died of advanced cirrhosis of the liver.

Usually this show is pretty good about not doing too many things with animals but this episode (S2, Fearful Symmetry) features zoo animals that are in some distress. And a gorilla capable of sign language that is very clearly sad and scared. Without spoiling, it does not end well for the animals we meet.

If it's a small consolation, the show does not minimize or dismiss their poor circumstances, most of the plot revolves around it in fact.

Perhaps more like an animal friend... In S2 E18, a gorilla (who speaks in sign language a few times) to whom a woman is extremely attached dies, and the woman wails by its dead body. It's easy to see in most scenes that the gorilla is an actor in a gorilla suit, but still.

S3E4 there's a glimpse of attempted sexual assault in the opening scene and later briefly mentioned. It's later revealed it might have actually been consensual.

S4E20 it's not shown on screen but we're told a man who can shape shift changes his appearance then sleeps with women by pretending to be their husband or crush, aka r*pe by deception.

Depends on whether or not you consider FBI folks to be cops. The FBI are consistently competent, if sceptical, however all the police in the show are incompetent at best and several times (including the pilot episode) they’re actively involved in the deaths. The CIA are there occasionally, and are not looked on positively.

Arguable as to whether it’s a slur, but the episode title is “Genderbender”. Similarly, in the episode they use the word “transvestite” and talk in an outdated way (but typical of the time of production) about trans people, one man laughing about his brief hookup being a woman who “looked like a man”.

S3 E7: A man has tried to kill himself - due to his family having been killed in a fire - just before the episode starts, and we're told that it was his third attempt. He's been failing because a supernatural entity won't let him die. Soon after, we see him jump into a huge pot of boiling water; again, it doesn't kill him, but it leaves him badly burned. Later on, another man points a gun at his own temple and pulls the trigger - because his son and wife have been murdered - but the gun doesn't fire.

S1E9, a character jumps out of a window to his death.

S2E14, a character survives a suicide attempt

S3E4, a character commits suicide at the end of the episode

S3E7, a character attempts in the opening scenes of the episode but survives. Dialogue establishes that he has attempted multiple times before.

S3E17 deals with a fugitive with the ability to influence people's decisions. It is stated that he has used this to drive people to suicide a number of times. One of his victims self-immolates on screen, other suicide victims are shown but the act itself is not.

S4E5 culminates in a mass suicide with a lot of similarities to the real-life events at Jonestown.

S4E23, a police officer shoots himself about halfway through the episode. Additionally two dead people discovered earlier in the episode are determined to have died in a murder/suicide incident.

S5E6, a woman apparently takes her own life towards the start of the episode. Her death is not shown on screen but her body is, and a police photo of her wrist is displayed later on in the episode. At the end of the episode it is determined not to be a suicide.

S5E8, a woman deliberately electrocutes herself about 2/3 of the way through the episode. Later one of the main characters appears to shoot herself, but this is revealed to be an illusion.

S5E10, multiple suicides throughout the episode.

S2E12: A spoken narrative states that a pregnant woman tried to self-abort, but was stopped. The attempt is not shown on screen. S4E2: Not an abortion per-se but a newborn baby is buried alive at the start of the episode. Their remains are shown on screen later. S6E7 deals with multiple cases of apparent self-abortion

no, but one of the main characters, Dana Scully, is given reproductive trauma during multiple arcs. In s4e14 there is a mention of women's ova being taken from them against their will, this is being brought up again in s5e6-7 with added themes of adoption, failed adoption and death of a child. s8e13 talks about infertility and has a failed IVF attempt.

No, but s1e14 portrays very outdated views on gender and sexuality and the way the topic is presented can be read in a very harmful way. People who can "change ther gender/sex"(again, outdated views) are presented to be sexual predators.

A man laughs about his brief hookup being a “woman who looked like a man”. Similarly, Scully describes her as “a transvestite” and says “‘she’ may have been a ‘he’,” although neither of her comments are played off as jokes.

The episode is about voodoo, and a lot of misrepresentation of both the religion and black people.

s6e19 tells a story set in the 1940s via flashbacks and characters use the ne-word a lot, even outside of the flashbacks it is used a few times.

S2 E11 takes place at a "recovery facility" (stupid name for it) that takes (badly) care of people with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. We see some of the caregivers talking disrespectfully to and about patients and being rough, indifferent or insolent towards them. General physical deterioration and dementia are mentioned, but thankfully, no more specific symptoms are mentioned. Throughout most of the episode, the patients that we follow function just fine, because they're being treated with a special drug (fictional), but in the end, the treatment stops, and we see a few of them "put out", i.e. saying nothing, having unexpressive faces and doing very little. All of them are elderly. I actually don't think we see any patients whom we know to have Parkinson's. I'm extremely sensitive to Parkinson's depictions, since my father has it, and I made it through the episode okay. There are no scenes in which a patient overtly can't remember something, doesn't recognise someone or fumbles while trying to perform a task - they're "just" unresponsive. One of the patients is an artist, and while he's doing well because of the drug, we see him painting amazingly - a big mural worthy of any artist - but when he's back to being sick, we see him making a very simple drawing on a piece of paper. --- S2 E24: An autopsy shows that a woman had Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease and would've died from it within a few months if what killed her hadn't killed her. We're later told that 27 people had the disease.

Technically it’s a bus. The driver loses control, and a man ends up dead.

Many episodes feature an autopsy scene, though the amount of gore shown is limited. Blood is a common occurrence. In addition, S3E4 features a CG animation of a decomposing body.

S4E2 is a particularly gruesome episode with a lot of blood and graphic violence.

S4E6 contains a scene with someone cutting and beginning to remove his own face.

S4E12 shows someone decapitated in a road accident. His body and severed head are shown in separate scenes.

S5E17, deals with a flesh-eating contageon.
