- For anyone who has experienced sensory overload, especially those on the autism spectrum, the scenes that detail this are quite scary, especially with what Christian does to himself.
- Ray King witnessing the Accountant's Roaring Rampage of Revenge on the Gambino gang and suddenly feeling the former's gun behind his head. Fortunately for him, the Accountant sees he's a good man and spares his life.
- Dana being alone against two killers sent for her. Fortunately, she's able to defend herself long enough for the Accountant to get rid of them, but if he hadn't shown up in time...
- Francis Silverberg being horrifically tortured by the Gambino gang after his release from prison. It's no wonder Christian went the way he did upon finding out what the Gambinos did to his friend.
- Braxton's Affably Evil shtick is very unsettling, given that it's hard to figure out if the friendly demeanor is authentic enough (meaning he's a friendly guy with no problems hurting/killing people in cold blood) or a front (meaning it's entirely a means for him to manipulate his victims).
- Braxton and his men invading Chilton's home and forcing him to kill himself via insulin overdose. And while Braxton wasn't serious about the threat to rape Chilton's wife and apologized immediately for that comment, he still would have killed her along with Chilton had Chilton not done as demanded.
- Relatively minor compared to the above, Medina being blackmailed by her prospective boss into tracking down somebody within a month, bonus for said boss having obtained records of her criminal history that were supposedly sealed away. Even if this was a Secret Test of Character given she never really had a choice in the matter if she wanted to avoid prison.
