** SPOILERS ** The mother of 2 main characters shows up to opening night (they've been hoping she would), but she freaks out and leaves without telling them she was there. We're shown that this is a pattern and that she has walked away from her kids many times before, which is a huge source of pain for at least one character.

There is a theme between Sugar and her mom where mom treats her kids terribly but Sugar is seen time and again seeking out a relationship with her. This is especially, painfully illustrated in episodes 6 and 10 of season 2.

There are some characters that have very physical tantrums including throwing and knocking things over when they get angry, might be triggering for someone recently out of an abusive situation. Also some really intense screaming and yelling and even a scene where someone threatens a co-worker with a knife

You see the main character’s verbal abuse in flashbacks, he later verbally abuses people to a lesser degree, but still.

Gaslighting refers to when a character is made to feel crazy by conflicting statements/being lied to repeatedly from someone else. This does not occur in the show. There is plenty of verbal abuse, shouting, threatening, and a laundry list of other problems. But “gaslighting” does not appear in the show.

In "Fishes" we get to see how Carmy and his siblings must have grown up - their mother is very mentally ill and an alcoholic, and she is very verbally abusive to them, even as adults

No, but it is a show about food, so you’ll see raw foods including raw meats. Nothing graphic at all though.

S2E10. Taking one for the team.


28:54-29:05 Audio, visual of her back but not of v* itself. Decent warning prior (she excuses herself for air).
37:02- 37:18 Quick cut to while fridge guy is working. This one caught me off guard. Audio and visual.
38:13-38:22 Audio no visual (except her back again), decent warning too but whole scene may make people uncomfortable. May just want to skip from 37:00-38:40 (though, unfortunately, important stuff happens in between these two.)

The main character, Carmy, repeatedly has dreams/daydreams of altered reality, such as a caged bear, a receipt printer talking to him, or things being set on fire. However, outside of a few scenes from his perspective which mostly occur in the first few episodes of season 1, the show has a firm foot in reality.

Extremely frequent raw meat in various stages of being butchered and cooked.

A few nastier cuts, an accidental stabbing (superficial wound to lower buttocks).

In episode 1, a gun is fired into the air to break up a fight between people in costumes in a line outside the restaurant. He afterwards waves the gun around while scolding the people who broke into a fight, but doesnt shoot it.
In episode 6, at approx. 10:50 there is a driveby shooting into the restaurant's window, one gunshot.
Later that episode, a character is frantically looking for his gun to break up another gang fight. He ends up finding it, puts it in his belt, but doesnt use it.
