The protagonist hints at an abusive/unstable upbringing. Later in the series, there are a few short flashbacks to her childhood. Her mother promotes disordered eating and smashes mirrors.

Yes, the female protagonist's mother is at a later point shown to have been extremely controlling of her behaviour. Gaslighting is not explicitly shown, but implied.

In S2E6, Alan’s neighbor tells Nadia that she killed his fish. Due to plot reasons, this is partially true, but we also see the fish being alive and well immediately after.

Nothing bad happens to her cat Oatmeal! At all. I was hesitant even though all the answers here said no. But I assure you nothing bad happens to the cat or the fish. :)

YES! S2E3 there is a scene where Nadia is inspecting her arms. From 16 minutes onwards (as soon as she shatters the mirror), skip to 16:50 to avoid. [SPOILERS] Nadia scratches herself and then examines her arms when she notices she has insect like bites on her skin, picks at her skin and then eventually pulls out a feathery bug from under it.

Yes, the female protagonist gets her hair cut at a few points in the series, as well as mentions of it. However, the cutting is never shown, the show cuts away to after it is done. The tools of the person cutting (scissors and a mirror) are shown, as well as the hair that was cut off.

In several versions of the protagonist's death, she (trips and) falls to her death. Sometimes bones can be heard cracking, especially when she breaks her neck. This mostly occurs when she falls down the stairs.

I'm not sure if it counts, but just to be sure: In season 1 ep 7, at the end of the episode Nadia throws up with a piece of a shattered mirror which ends up graphically shows her choking on it, puking out blood and it splattering on everything around her. Aside from that I don't remember any scenes lile that worth noting.

Season 2, Episode 1. There's a scene with the main character in a bathroom. I thought it might have been safe, but there is a very rapid gag-to-v*m moment. It is quick and is only audio, to my knowledge, and wasn't TOO triggering for me, but it's there. Once you see a tear slide down the character's face, skip ahead about 10 seconds and you should be clear.

SEASON 2 has a mental institution scene. S2E3 features Nadia/Nora being admitted to a psychiatric hospital, Nadia does not want to be there and asks to leave. Later Nadia wears a straitjacket and is in a white padded room. A doctor asks her questions about her hallucinations. A few minutes later in the episode, Nadia escapes from the institution.

The protagonist doesn't engage in self harm in the cutting sense but both she and another person trapped in time quickly display other self-destructive behaviours like crossing roads without any care etc.
Also, several characters are indirectly hurting themselves by violent, destructive behaviour against objects, endangering themselves.

Due to the nature of the premise, both Nadia and Alan die many times in the time loop of season 1.

It isn't revealed until season 2 that Alan likes both women and men, but he doesn't die in that season.
