S1E1-3: a woman has continual uncomfortable sex that she does not desire but "consents" to as she is his wife/feels she must. This occurs multiple times over the course of the first three episodes until he, during intercourse, passes away. S1E1: throughout the episode, a woman is being raped by her husband. It is not forceable, but she has no opportunity to say no because of her situation and is clearly not interested in sex. She comments later that is bad enough when it happens and she has warning, but now she gets no warning. She takes baths after each rape and comments to others how she does not want it. S1E2: forced sex between a husband and his wife. S1E3: a wife mentions that her late husband only saw "girls" as suitable for breeding (it is unclear whether this means he cheated on her with minors or whether she is referring to her experiences within their marriage). Either way this comment is delivered in an emotional manner and may be upsetting for viewers. S1E4: a widow returns to the room where she and her husband used to sleep and when she touches the bed, she has flashbacks to the uncomfortable sex they continually had throughout the first three episodes.
