In episode two of season two, a dog is killed offscreen. There are no whining noises, just the sound of continuous barking cutting off and a thump that is presumably the body falling. The body is not shown.

Drummerwitchakookoo
Todd’s landlord in the pilot is implied to regularly use drugs in addition to making and selling them. Amanda is shown smoking weed in early episodes—it’s implied she does this to help ease her pararibulitis. In season two, Tina references a “ten to fifteen year dark period In which she experimented with some pretty heavy drugs.” She also eats a weed gummy.

Some of the pararibulitis attacks look enough like seizures that you may want to avoid it if it’s an anxiety trigger for you.

A character also has a seizure in season two after panicking and pushing his power to its limits.

in the beginning of season 1 a character gets kidnapped and is held down on a bed while being interrogated. when they stop responding to the questions they are electrocuted (it is very brief and not show for more than a few seconds)
in the beginning of season 2 a character is captured by blackwing and put through a series of tests when they fail they get electrocuted or a colored goo is shot at them (usually in the face) other characters are held in rooms by blackwing under uncomfortable circumstances but there is nothing graphic or extreme
i am usually very sensitive to these things but no instance was very disturbing for me

there’s no autism specific abuse but all of the characters who get abused for their ‘powers’ ie biological differences from the rest of humanity, are autistic coded/have a lot of autistic traits so it could potentially be triggering

No one kills themselves, but there's a brief moment near the end of the second season where a man is talking about how he made a lot of mistakes while he's holding a gun to his temple. He ends up moving the gun away a few seconds later and not doing anything though.

Big yes. One character is a serial killer who kills in any way she can, it's often very violent and graphic. Multiple violent bloody fight scenes throughout the series. I try to cover my eyes whenever this is going to happen but have still seen quite a lot.
