Maybe you're reading too much into it? It's a fictional TV show designed to entertain. It's a great show! I love the mystery of it all. I don't think the show is any darker than it was. There had been violence and social upsets throughout the whole show. The reason it may seem more so to you this season is because you have gotten to know the characters and now they are being held against their will. It affects your emotions because you could maybe put yourself in their place and feel how they feel
