Description

In season one, a male character is a rape survivor. S1E1: early in the episode a pastor is revealed to have raped and killed numerous young boys. Also early in the episode, the main character views a website which displays a violent rape on-screen. This clip is roughly 10 seconds long. This is not relevant to the overarching plot but, although brief, may be disturbing to some viewers. The character Rita is also a survivor of an abusive domestic relationship. S1E3: several main characters joke about a sex move that amounts to assault (riding a woman like a bronco while she is trying to buck the man off). It is presented as legitimate. Season 5: the main villains are a group of serial rapists (there are flashbacks in almost every episode). There is a description of a rape by their first victim and while the police is investigating, there is a board with pictures of the victims and frames of the videos. S5E3: a character is introduced as a survivor of rape. The impacts of this trauma are made clear in the way she reacts when faced with large groups of men or when she is touched. S5E9: the police finds DVDs that contain recordings of all the women the group raped, and they show parts of those images, as well as a lot of screaming by the victims, in almost every following episode of the season.
