@heartofacloud or I just wouldn't want to know when there is another suicide on a show where people are willing to die in order te prevent being discovered, because it negates the element of surprise for me. I can still enjoy the episode, but that is just how I interpreted the tw.

@justmike personally, I got used to Angelica's suicide since it's shown so often so it doesn't shock me anymore, hence not personally needing a tw for it. and if a tw will spoil your story, it's not a very well written story.

@Baltimore I'm sorry if you feel I miss the point, but I have explained my opinion on the subject enough and besides that, as you mentioned, users are allowed to tw episodes when they feel they are required.

@justmike Sadly I feel like you miss the point a bit. The user who posted the tw did so on their own account, to help some people out to be PREPARED for it, that doesn't mean that there should or should'nt be tw's on every episode, just that it is not their job to do so, it is just a kind gesture. I get what you mean, the show itself is triggering, but just because nobody cared to trigger the whole thing, doesn't mean that users aren't allowed to tw one episode specifically. That's just what I meant, that tw has a right to be there but often isn't, and that it isn't a spoiler in any way, especially since you've so nicely pointed out that this show tackles these subjects almost every episode. Then it can't be a spoiler if it happens in every episode, right?

@Baltimore Let me first state that I am in no way trying to diminish trigger warnings and suicide, nor am I trying to disrespect anyone's opinion. But I do feel there is some overlap with trigger warnings and spoilers in this case. This show deals with a lot of heavy subjects and it has shown suicide (and suicidal intentions) before (SHOW SPOILER ). I just think it's odd why this episode should get a suicide trigger warning and (for instance) the episode 'Polyphony' not?

@justmike a trigger warning doesn't count as a spoiler, it's simply human decency. Even if the whole show should be tagged with a tw, and in some places even is, that doesn't mean that a specifical episode with it as its subject doesn't need one.

@heartofacloud not in my opinion, seems a bit like a spoiler for something that this show has done before and probably will do again. It's obviously your choice if you want to warn people, but I feel like it should be a warning for the show in general, not just this episode.

@justmike shouldn't people know if another happens?

@heartofacloud wasn't the first scene of the show a suicide?
