Season 1 - the hotel manager gaslights a guest, but he's a very difficult and unreasonable guest so this might not be triggering
Season 2 - a man gaslights his partner about cheating (though she says to another character she kinda knows and isn't a victim), he also intensely gaslights his "friend" about hitting on his wife

Yes, several time in a single scene, in relation to the Greek mythology story of Hades and Persephone. The scene involves Bert, Dominic, Albie and Portia. The scene opens with an aerial shot of a ancient Sicilian theater, from around 27:00 to 29:00.

It kinda depends on your perspective... the manager coerces an employee to have sex with him by bribing him with drugs and the ability to choose his shifts in the future. They then have sex with some of it shown on screen, while they're both on drugs. The employee did consent and seems enthusiastic, but he was also bribed/coerced, so I'm not sure.

Not exactly but a pregnant woman’s water breaks in S1E1 and you do see it splash on the ground and wet her clothes. Also, in the finale someone is shown purposefully defecating somewhere that’s not a toilet.

S1 - lots of police show up in a hotel to investigate an accidental murder. You briefly see them engaging very pleasantly with the white man who did the murder. I think the class/race dynamics behind this good treatment are implied but others might not.

A teenage boy character is mocked for “stimming” in the first episode. Whether the character is actually autistic (they use “Aspergers”) is briefly “debated” by his mom and sister in a later episode… I’ll say that he could certainly be read as autistic. His sister is verbally abusive to him (beyond typical sibling rivalry) and his mom infantilizes him.

A major character in season 1 mentions many times her diagnoses, including Morgellon’s, panic attacks, and Highly Sensitive Person.

However, these symptoms are rarely depicted onscreen, with the exception of prescription benzodiazepines.
