S1E1: a character tells a woman that she would be unsafe working at a bar because the bar patrons would assault her. In a later scene, he tells the woman that if one of the bar patrons tried to assault her he would not do anything about it. In another scene, someone makes a reference to child prostitution. A brief scene shows a man having sex with a sex worker: it is unclear if she is a child (18:15). S1E3: a character forces themselves onto a woman and attempts to rape her after she resists. S1E6: a man attempts to rape a sex worker but is killed, allowing her to escape. At the end of season 2, it is implied that a character was raped in prison. S2E1: at the end of the episode, a woman is abducted to be raped in retaliation for the actions of her brothers. She is beaten, partially undressed and fondled, then rescued. S2E2: this episode starts with the sexual violence implied at the end of the previous episode with mildly graphic groping, attempted undressing, and kissing. S2E3: a woman is blackmailed into sex and raped. S2E5: a woman is blackmailed into sex. S2E6: a woman is raped on screen by a soldier during a derby race (about 34 minutes). The soldier killed shortly after. S2E7: attempted rape. In season 3, it is revealed that a main character was sexually abused as a child. The character getting revenge for his abuse becomes a major plot point in the season. The abuser is frequently shown interacting with children, though actual abuse is never depicted. S3E5: rape is briefly shown on-screen as a flashback, when a main character engages consensual sex. A male character is erotically asphyxied unwillingly. He is also raped by being coerced into sex.
