See below for the exact times and descriptions of the 12 jump scares in Them, which has a jump scare rating of 3.0.

Jump Scare Rating: Them utilizes a wide range of horror tactics to tell its story. While the focus is largely on the narrative, there are also a fair amount of scary, tense and graphic scenes. In terms of jump scares, however, most episodes contain little to none of them, with the most noteworthy ones being within the first two episodes.

Synopsis: During The Great Migration, roughly 6 million African Americans moved away from the Jim Crow rural Southern United States. The story follows one such family in 1953. As they move into an all white neighborhood in California, they find themselves not only threatened by their neighbors trying to drive them out, but also malevolent otherworldly forces in their new home.
