It's at least one whole arc but kind of the theme of the whole show in a broad, vague sense, because the alien is trying to keep the fact he's an alien a secret. Can't say without spoiling a great unfolding of important mystery-shrouded events, but it's definitely a big part of s1 e10 specifically.

In s2 e1 the alien very unenthusiastically acts like he's spanking a kid he has ill will toward throughout the show. The kid isn't in pain but it may be icky for some to watch regardless.

D'Arcy frequently mentions using pills, multiple characters talk about taking drugs. One is unknowingly slipped sleeping pills. Harry takes a mouthful of sleeping pills and passes out in a scene played for comedy. In an art gallery scene 2 characters use acid

The octopus that is sentient and telepathic is attacked and killed the dog that Harry was keeping in the cabin. The dog has the octopus in his jaws and shakes it violently, but there is no blood/gore. The octopus then dies in Harry's arms. It is played for dark humor, but it could definitely be traumatic. As the octopus is dying, he telepathically tells Harry to eat him with butter sauce, which Harry later does.

The main character, Harry, has a pet octopus (who he can talk with) who is killed by a dog he kidnapped and was holding hostage. The dog seems completely happy to be there, but he grabs and shakes the octopus to near death. Then the octopus dies in Harry's arms after a tearful conversation. Very unrealistic because of the talking, but it may be upsetting to someone who adores octopi or beings like them.

During a panel when people are speaking about their experiences with aliens, one man talks about being abducted by aliens, strapped to a cold table, and having a long metal rod inserted - - - then he breaks down and shows severe emotional de-stress.
the main character then jokingly says "he was going to say Asshole."


Later in the same episode at 38 minutes when Darcy and... I forget her name are playing pool. They mention Asta missing and her friend callously mentions that maybe she's in the back of a car, pounding and kicking and screaming. It triggered my partner when we were watching so figured I'd mention.

The entire premise of the first episode is they being in the alien to investigate the death of the town doctor, who was cut several times in the throat with a scalpel. They rehash this in later episodes as well.

It is worth noting, some scenes where the alien's genetic cloaking are failing leave the eyes different sizes and colors and may make some with eye aversions feel icky.

Several characters are "abducted" but it is never for sexual purposes. There's actually kind of a "reverse" kidnapping in one episode where he finds kids unconscious in his basement because they touched something that blasted them agaisnt the wall, and he has to put them safely back home so he doesn't look suspicious.

S1 Ep. 9 at 38 minutes when Darcy and... I forget her name are playing pool. They mention Asta missing and her friend callously mentions that maybe she's in the back of a car, pounding and kicking and screaming. It triggered my partner when we were watching so figured I'd mention.

There is an episode where people who grew up together/dated throughout their school years and planned to marry end up kissing while one is married. The other is drunk and they initiate it and then they immediately regret it and so far (2 seasons) it has not been pursued any further.

At the beginning of an episode, a pregnant woman is seen on a bus with her husband. She floats, it flashes, and she is no longer pregnant. May be triggering to some who have lost their baby.

Season 2 Episode 1-2 so far is sex implied and max's parents dirty talk/ make out while dirty talking through out the episodes. There is one scene where she is dressed in lingerie and they have
BDSM sex, no nudity, but it is graphic, short scene atleast. Season 2 is far more sexual than the first one. I have not finished the second season yet because it is so uncomfortable.

A large portion in the second half of season 2 deals with Harry’s coming to terms with almost dying as Asta struggles with what she did to save him. A lot of discussion around death, taking a life, and how to cope with existential dread.
