s16e12, "The Porcelain Maiden" - at approximately 17:34 a man being questioned by Murdoch gets sick (having just been shown a photo of something which upsets him) -- he ducks out of frame so there is audio but no visual... HOWEVER, at about 20:44 we *do* see the remains. It looks pretty fake, but it is stepped in, talked about briefly, and interacted with (though never up close) for the rest of the scene (about 22:08) ... quite the escalation from a show that's been relatively emoto-free for 16 years

Specifically, S3E3 deals with the murder of a trans man in the 1890s, and as a result of a lack of awareness and acceptance the victim is constantly misgendered. If this is a trigger, avoid S3E3
