Throughout the first season, abusive relationships are a theme. The depictions of domestic violence vary in intensity throughout the seasons and occur in most episodes. Rape is discussed and depicted in detail. One woman grapples with the emotional implications of raising a son who was conceived when she was raped. This conflict is revealed in S1E3, partially through flashbacks to the rape itself.
