Lionel Luthor: Empires are not brought down by outside forces - they are destroyed by weaknesses from within.
Lois is dressed in a Star Wars storm trooper uniform (from Star Wars episode IV) as she approaches Chloe, she says 'I can't see a thing in this helmet' as she takes off the helmet - the same as Luke Skywalker says when he first meets Leia in Star Wars episode IV. See more...

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Becker starts to chase Lucy there is a shot looking up the hill towards the lodge where she started skiing from. To Lucy's left you can see a fresh pair of ski tracks being made by whatever the camera is on. You can tell these are fresh tracks because there is fresh snow being kicked in the air because of them.
Continuity: As the computer says "Subject seeds exposed to radiation" there is a camera shot showing the temperature monitor in the lower right of the shot. In that shot the readout shows the temperature reading is close to 100% of maximum. Then, in the next shot as the scientist says ".absorption level: as expected" the temperature monitor is now close to 90% as we see it climb up to the 98% they were trying for.
Revealing: After everything with Dawn is over Clark goes back to the prom. Clark asks Lois if she wants to dance. Lois says "I'm not the one you want to dance with." and she nods to the door. The shot switches to show Lana walking in to the prom. When Lois makes her nod to the door Lana would have been completely out of sight. Lois nods before Lana even enters the room.
Plot hole: When Dawn enters Clark's body, she slaps Chloe in the face with the back of the hand, and Chloe goes flying. A few minutes later, we see Chloe get up and say that she's fine. Getting backhanded by Clark would make you very far from fine. First of all, Clark can knock someone out just by tapping them on the forehead, as seen in a previous episode. Second, Dawn has no idea of Clark's powers, so she would have used way more force than she actually needed to. The amount of force inflicted from Clark's hand should have completely broken Chloe's face. There's not even a cut or bruise or anything.
Continuity: Jason accesses Lex's computer and Lex catches him. After a discussion on an email Jason found Lex says "Burying ladies in the backyard isn't exactly a hobby of mine, Jason." Lex then just stands there staring at Jason. During their stare down the camera jumps back behind Lex and then back to behind Jason. During these camera changes the lighting on the left side of Lex's face changes. When the camera is behind Jason, Lex's left side is dark. When the cameras is behind Lex, Lex's left side is lit up.
Continuity: The raindrops on Clark's shirt disappear and reappear between shots. Clark's shirt is dry when he turns to Chloe and asks "I'm not normal?" but before and after this his shirt has raindrops on it. This happens again a few moments later as Lois starts to talk about "panicking in times of crisis", Clark turns towards Lois and his shirt is dry.
Continuity: Jason Teague arrives at the Kent farm. He fires a shot into the windshield of the Kent's truck. So we obviously know the gun is loaded. Later, inside the Kent's house, Jason still has Jonathan and Martha held hostage. After Jason mentions the symbols burned into the field Martha says she doesn't know what he is talking about. Jason gets upset and racks the shotgun but when he does no shotgun shell, used or unused, is ejected. Now Jason would have had to keep the gun loaded while moving Jonathan and Martha back to the house as he would have had no time to unload and reload his gun.
Continuity: The blood on Lana's face is different then how it was in the previous episode. While at the crater in Commencement she has two distinct lines of blood on her face. One on her left cheek is thick and the one on the right cheek goes down past her lips. While at the crater in this episode the left line is then while the right line is shorter. These two scenes should be identical since Arrival picks up right after Commencement.
