Description

The show is a crime procedural and, as a result, goes into detail regarding incidents of sexual violence (and pedophilia) on many occasions. One plotline involves a main character who must repeatedly confront a man who once molested him, along with many other pre-pubescent boys. S2E12: one of the main characters is revealed to have been molested by his football coach, who was a father figure to him for a time, during his childhood. The man who hurt him has also hurt many other young boys. He has to confront this man later in the episode. This topic is handled relatively sensitively. S8E18: the same man has to confront the man who sexually abused him. He has to shake the hand of this man at one point. The details surrounding his sexual abuse are discussed, but there are no graphic descriptions of the act itself. Once again, the topic is handled relatively sensitively. Several episodes features serial rapists, who sometimes seeks to impregnate their victims. One of them kills herself because she is pregnant. Another episode involves a woman who was raped and becomes a serial killer (narrative of victim blaming).
