Description

Worthy of Note: while there is technically no sexual assault or abuse, a setting element that frequently becomes plot critical is, among other things, a metaphor for sexual awakening and puberty. In the latter half of season 1, this plot element is brought up and while again, no actual sexual assault occurs or is even implied, there are a number of things that are clearly metaphors for it - and are directed, written and acted in ways that make it abundantly clear that this is symbolism is deliberate. There is also a great deal of explicit child abuse that is non-sexual throughout season 1, including physical assault, gaslighting, and emotional abuse/abduction to the situation with the aforementioned symbolic sexual abuse.
