The pig scene from Black Mirror’s "National Anthem."
For those who don’t know, the Prime Minister was blackmailed into having [relations] with a pig on National television in order for terrorists to release a kidnapped princess.
Icing on the trash cake? She was released 30 minutes before he had sex with the pig and he had no idea.

The Peacock Family On 'The X-Files'
From Redditor u/roseripper:
That absolutely [wild] episode of The X-Files with the inbred family living on the farm with their deformed, amputee mother... [They] helped her give birth and buried the dead in the backyard.
From Redditor u/tenkadaiichi:
Jesus, thanks for making me remember the mother's scream and skittering back underneath the bed where she was being stored.
From Redditor u/evileen99:
My husband had never seen an episode of X Files. It comes on some station one afternoon, and he decides to watch. What episode do you suppose it was? "Home". I could never convince him that the whole show wasn't like [that], and to this day, he refuses to even be in the room if X Files is on.

From Redditor u/BilboMontague1:
[M*A*S*H] when the lady killed her baby so the enemy wouldn’t hear it and kill everyone on the bus. Hawkeye tried to convince himself it was a chicken in his mind but finally admitted it... as he was the one who told her to keep the baby quiet.
The finale of MASH, when the reveal about the chicken dropped. Seeing Hawkeye, who when I was a kid seemed the very epitome of the cool adult, so completely wrecked, was really crushing to me. https://t.co/kUcv5NWc50— Zack Stentz (@MuseZack) April 8, 2021

Ramsey Bolton setting his dogs on Walda and his baby brother. It was pretty just when that’s how he died as well, but man, that was ROUGH.

From Redditor u/bjornlelf:
In Heroes, when Sylar breaks into Claire’s home, overpowers her, cuts open her head and rubs his finger along her brain to take her power. All while she is immobilized on the coffee table and unable to die because of her healing ability.
