There are no cat deaths in Season 4. However: Episode 5, around 1:03:38, there is a taxidermied bobcat on display in the house. It is only shown for a few seconds. Skipping to 1:03:46 will let you go past it without missing anything important.

Victor mentions finding mutilated animals including dogs when he is telling his story in episode 4. No dogs are shown though.

You see a bunny be tortured and killed using “mind powers” at the 1 hour 25 minute mark in episode 7. It’s pretty disturbing, I’d suggest skipping that bit.

Many instances of spiders coming out of bathtubs, clocks, etc. A table of rotting food shows flies and bugs.

Rabbit. Episode 7 - at around 1:25:00. Skip about a 60-70 seconds to avoid it. You will hear it and see it so don't just cover your eyes.

Nearly every episode has flashbacks to El's childhood locked in the lab, with physical violence shown in detail and implications of heavy emotional abuse. No mention or implication of any sexual abuse.

The gore is pretty serious in this season, especially considering this show is only rated TV-14.

Two different characters are choked by supernatural elements wrapping around their necks, causing them to audibly struggling to breathe. One has lingering scars on his neck from the choking for the rest of the episode.

Ep1 - About 1:10:00, Chrissy appears to have an absent seizure. SPOILER Later we understand these happen when Lord Vecna possesses people, so they happen frequently throughout the show.

Every time there is a death, usually follows with eye mutilation.

Cops are framed as the level-headed citizens of town, the only people not actively hunting teens and trying to keep the peace.

Ep6 - 59 min mark - a warden at El's upbringing hospital is electrocuted as punishment. Then Ep7 - 24 min mark - an electroshock collar is put on a child. It is EXTREMELY triggering the second time.

The characters visit Pennhurst asylum in Ep4. Additionally, El's childhood is shown almost every episode, and she grew up in a hospital/lab.

One character discusses his daughter dying from cancer, which is accompanied by a flashback depicting the event.

No one is in canon Autistic, but the series can be incredibly hard for Autistic viewers (it was for myself) because most of the characters are perceived as "weird", and they face a huge amount of bullying for it, particularly 11. Ex. Ep1, El does a class presentation and is bullied for being asocial/essentially having a developmental delay. BIG WARNING: El's upbringing is also strongly reminiscent of ABA abuse, and in Ep7 about 24 min mark an electroshock collar is put on a child, as the JRC does to Autistic kids. Multiple Autistic-coded characters are characterized as school shooters and one has a very triggering manifesto related to the autistic experience. END OF BIG WARNING. Robin is also coded as autistic in this season and is treated poorly by other characters (mentions specifically she has trouble with social cues, had a developmental delay, has dyspraxia). In Ep 6 about 50min mark Hopper calls a man and his son "slow" to start a fight.

Yes, Ep3 about 00:07:00 - they're having family dinner and honestly use the same sound effects as Lord Vecna, just quieter.

In the cold open of the season, it seems to compare 11 to being a mentally ill school shooter. (My own interpretation, but it felt glaring). In Ep3 and 4, a person accused of killing their family is misdiagnosed schizophrenic and placed in an asylum.

A character is locked in a very small closet and the metal closet is heated as a form of torture.

Every episode has them. Just avoid this show if you struggle because the whole thing is full of flashing lights

At the very end of the show, we see childbirth from the point of view of the child. It is not graphic and is partly obscured, but the sounds of labor can be heard.

Episodes 1 and 2: El isn't technically disabled, but she's academically and socially delayed due to her upbringing. She's repeatedly bullied for it by classmates.

The prison scenes were shot in a Lithuanian jail that aided in the Holocaust. This is not shown nor understood in the show, but is something to keep in mind if you do not want to support shows that do things like this.

There are brief flashbacks to a sex scene from season one in the season finale. Additionally, many characters discuss wanting to have sex, but other than the flashback, none is shown.

there is an extended scene where someone has a paranormally-aided flashback to a car crash they caused, and it is very triggering. you do not see the action of crashing, but you do see the wreck burning for an extended period of time
