At the end of Episode 6, a Pomeranian is strapped to a parachute and thrown off a balcony to test the parachute. The dog is unharmed and is in the following episode.

In the second episode a dog and a raccoon are put in a tree trunk together presumably to fight. The dog comes out covered in blood but unharmed, insinuating it killed the raccoon.

The bear gets shot in the party scene near the end of the first episode. It’s pretty fake looking but does happen. A raccoon is also killed in the second episode, and a doe is shown being shot (again, it looks very fake).

Dead bear in first episode, several dead birds, a crocodile that is brutally stabbed, etc. This show has just lots of dead animals.

In season 2, two characters eat some sort of psychedelic plant. This is shown as a positive experience. There is also copious consumption of alcohol, including while a character is pregnant. The same character, also while pregnant, takes what is essentially cocaine to stay awake.

S01E09 contains very graphic torture scenes. Peter decides to have everyone at court tortured to discover who is plotting against him. It shows terrified people awaiting their turn to be tortured as well as graphic depictions of the torture itself. Several of the main characters are among the victims but they're OK afterward. Like most of the other horrors in this show, it's played as dark humour, but could still be very upsetting.

There’s shaving that’s alluded/implied to happen to during episode 3, but you don’t see it. However Orlo is told to shave the mans beard and enters Catherine’s room after with blood all over his face

To add more detail, the scene in episode 4 where the priest burns himself alive is not overly graphic or prolonged. We see him light his robes on fire and he makes a couple of pained sounds but the camera focuses mostly on the onlookers' faces.

There are soldiers shown to be missing legs and arms, as well as multiple decapitated heads. The act is not shown on screen, but it is gruesome.

S02EP08 - someone falls out of a window while having sex. Time stamp is 49:40-50:10 It is not too graphic, the person lays on grass, and the only blood seen is a few streaks from their mouth

EPISODE 2 Decapitated heads of dead Swedish enemies are placed around on silver trays on the formal dinning table during dinner service. Then (at around the 41 minute mark) the emperor pulls the eyeballs out of one of them. Then everyone stands and does the same, including empress Catherine.

A regular plot point is the emperor sleeping with his best friends wife. The friend is aware but is clearly regularly distressed by this.

Though no parents die on screen, the dead body of the emperor's mother, preserved in a glass case, is shown several times. This is played as dark humor. His father, also dead, is mentioned frequently, but his death itself is never brought up.

There’s a particularly graphic vomit scene in episode 5 around 13:50 until 14:20.

Near the end of episode 1, a character comes close to cutting their wrists, but is stopped before going through with it.

No one is explicitly mentioned to have a mental illness, but most characters have at least one moment when they behave violently

in episode 2, a character up put in a fairly small box and dropped into a body of water. the character is released before any damage is done, but it may be upsetting to some viewers.

So much sexual content. Just so much. Of every kind. In every episode. In most of the scenes in every episode.

Catherine is penetrated (fingers) by a clergymen in the first episode. This is mentioned throughout the season and she seems traumatized by it. In another scene, a man starts to have sex with a corpse.
