Slumber - S3-E4

Corrected entry: In this episode Clark keeps having dreams of this girl who moved in Lana's old house, and is in a coma. In one of the dream sequences Clark says he doesn't have powers in the dreams. Yet in a previous dream he's with Lex at his mansion, and Lex takes a Japanese Katana and attacks Clark with it, but Clark blocks the sword with his arm and the sword blade shatters. If he doesn't have any powers in the dreams then shouldn't he have been hurt?

Correction: Clark says, "I have no power," meaning that he doesn't have the power to stop the Traveller, not as a reference to his abilities (which remain available to him in the dreams). He's saying that Sara is the one who must stop him. Even though Clark is eventually able to destroy the Traveller with his heat vision, he wouldn't have been able to do that until Sara stood up to him in the end.


Magnetic - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Lana is in jail, Clark tells her "Sheriff Adams knows you didn't steal the car and Lex has a lawyer working on the other charges." The police got involved after Lex called them because she stole the till from the Talon. Since Lex is the owner of the Talon, wouldn't it be a lot simpler for Lex to just drop the charges rather than have a lawyer "work on" them?


Correction: The only people who can typically issue or drop charges for criminal offenses are district attorneys. Even if a person who is wronged lawfully doesn't want to press charges, it's ultimately up to the DA whether or not charges are actually filed.


Prodigal - S2-E15

Corrected entry: At the beginning, Lucas holds another man in front of him to stop a hail of bullets. A human body won't stop most gunfire, certainly not from the submachine guns the thugs were using.



Correction: The fact that bullets have been lodged in the body of gunshot victims in real life goes to show this is not a mistake. Given also that bullets going through a human body would be deflected or slowed to the point it won't penetrate another body further prove this is not a mistake. The character just got lucky, but it's not improbable.


Crisis - S3-E16

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, Lionel Luther pulls the top of the gun back on his gun to chamber a bullet. But he accidentally has his finger squeezing the trigger, causing the gun to slide into place more quickly than intended. I'm not a gun expert, but I think if there was a bullet in the chamber at the time, it would have been fired.

Correction: The pistol Lex has is one that is usually called an "Automatic", but more correctly an "auto feed" or "semi-automatic." Unlike a revolver, in a semi-automatic pistol, the firing pin and the hammer are separate pieces. If someone has their finger holding the trigger down, while pulling back the slide to insert a round, the round, firing pin and hammer all move together, and there is no impact to set off the primer on the round. Sort of a safety feature. Not a very smart thing for Lex to do, because he would either have to pull the hammer back manually, or pull back the slide, eject the round, and insert a new one.

Visage - S2-E11

Corrected entry: Tina Greer disguised as Whitney walks down the hallway dressed in marine corps dress blues. His rank was a private first class, yet he had a blood stripe going down his pant legs. You do not receive the blood stripe until you reach corporal. Also the medals were wrong and some missing (i.e. combat action). The marine that comes to the house later and is killed by Tina Greer, had medals that were wrong as well.

Correction: Being Tina, she doesn't know everything there is know about the military. It's not really a character mistake, either, since it's in character with her brash nature of only caring about Lana and nothing else.


Shimmer - S1-E10

Corrected entry: Seth is using a cream made of green (i.e., kryptonite) roses to make himself invisible. At the beginning of the episode, Clark is in the locker room and feels ill from the kryptonite rose cream that Seth is wearing as he beats up the kid who picked on Amy. For the rest of the episode Clark does not feel the effects even though Seth is close enough to him at least two other times in the show. Once after Seth trashes Victoria's room and runs past Lex and Clark and again when Seth tries to drown Victoria in the tub.

Correction: Both of those times he passed by him either very quickly or not close enough for any reaction to occur.


Arrival - S5-E1

Corrected entry: Jor-El tells Clark that he has to return to the Fortress by sundown or face the consequences. Later, Lex tells Chloe that they're in the Yukon, implying that the Fortress of Solitude is in the Arctic. Since the events of this episode take place in the summer, Clark should have had plenty of time to help out in Smallville - the Arctic enjoys permanent daylight during the summer.

Correction: Jor-El has been to Earth in the past, but he only visited Kansas. He wasn't there for long, but he was there long enough to know how long it takes for a day to pass. Saying that Clark had until sundown means he has at most 24 hours.


Extinction - S3-E3

Corrected entry: When the bad guy shoots at Clark with the kryptonite bullet, he is facing the other way, then hears the shot, turns around and tries to catch the bullet. This couldn't have happened because a bullet from that kind of rifle is faster than the speed of sound. So the bullet would have hit him in the back before the sound could reach his ears.

Correction: The bullet is made of nothing but kryptonite. Besides the fact that you wouldn't be able to shoot it out of that gun without heavy modifications (which may not even be possible), being kryptonite means there is no way we could know how it would act if it were fired out of a gun. One can't presume to know the capabilities of a fictional substance unless it's directly stated in the fiction, which it isn't.


Phoenix (2) - S3-E2

Corrected entry: While Clark is inside the semi-truck being delivered to Morgan Edge and Lionel Luthor he manages to remove the kryponite apparently duct taped to his chest. This cannot be possible since he even a small piece of kryptonite (Lana's necklace) was enough for him to trip and fall from several feet away! Imagine a larger chunk like the one they strapped to his chest. He should have been severely weakened by it and the radiation should go through anything in that truck besides lead and the tape used to secure the rock on Clark's chest is not made of lead. His ability to not only have the strength to rip the taped rock off his chest but to then launch it to the far side of the truck should not be possible in view of the nearly immobilizing effects kryptonite has on Clark.

Correction: Seeing all of the times that Clark has been exposed to kryptonite on Smallville, I've made a simple observation. Kryptonite does not take away all of Clark's strength. Rather, it makes him about 1/4 to 1/2 as strong as a normal person of his build. He is still able to perform some physical things, like throwing a rock (which can be seen in the Season 1 Episode 3, Hothead, when he chucks several kryptonite stones at a glass window and breaks it with the impact). There's no accurate way of measuring the pain that he endures from kryptonite, but his physical strength is somewhere along those lines. Therefore, although it would, of course, be painful, he still has enough strength (possibly after getting used to the pain) to be able to pull off the duct tape and throw the kryptonite away from him.


Show generally

Corrected entry: Season 9, episode 1 "Saviour": When Lois goes back to the train car she meets up with Davis Bloom. After learning she has been missing for three weeks she asks what day it is and he replies it's Friday the 25th. Lois also picks up a newspaper and the date reads Friday the 25th. The train accident happened the night before, the date should read Thursday the 24th.


Correction: When Lois goes back to the train car she meets up with "John Corben". Davis Bloom was already dead by this point in the show.

Nemesis - S6-E19

Corrected entry: Lana opens Lex's briefcase with two shots from a semi-automatic pistol at point-blank range, yet the glass table underneath the briefcase is completely undamaged.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Correction: How is this a mistake? The bullets hit their mark and flew off somewhere else. Since we don't see them after they're fired, there's no reason to assume that they hit the table.


Obsession - S3-E14

Corrected entry: Clark and Alicia are in the basement of the school, as part of the plan to trick Alicia, and, as they go to leave, Alicia picks up her bag with Clark right next to her. A few minutes later we find out that Alicia has a kryptonite rock in her bag. She takes it out of her bag to get away from Clark. Clark felt no effects from the rock before that even though he was in such close proximity, and surely a bag would not be enough to protect his from feeling the effects.

Correction: Being obsessed with him, she would also likely know that lead blocks the effects of the kryptonite. She could have kept it in a lead casing and would only have used it just in case. Otherwise she would have been hurting him for no reason.


Redux - S2-E6

Corrected entry: Chrissy is the leader of Spirit Week and is trying to organise it. We see her kiss her boyfriend Troy, and suck the life out of him a few days before Spirit Week. However, Chloe pulls up the file on Troy, and it says his date of death is June 20, 2002. This is highly unlikely, as Spirit Week is put on in the days leading up to homecoming, and homecoming is usually in late September or October.

Correction: Schools don't all follow the same schedules. While schools in nearby areas would have similar schedules, it's not unreasonable to think that one school's Homecoming is months away from another school's Homecoming that's on the other side of the country.


Obsession - S3-E14

Corrected entry: Earlier in the episode Lana is looking through Adam's journal which contains entries through at least the end of January. However, when Clark is taking Alicia home after their date, there are Christmas lights up due to filming during the holidays.

Correction: Some people don't take their decorations down right away. I have neighbors whom leave theirs up until February.


Velocity - S3-E13

Corrected entry: After Clark speeds past Pete, Clark stops in front of Pete's car causing Pete to slam on his brakes. After they argue about why Pete is street racing Pete gets in the car and leaves but there are no skid marks on the road from him slamming on his brakes.

Correction: Skid marks don't happen all the time.


Forever - S4-E21

Corrected entry: When the students become wax their eyes move indicating that they are aware of their surroundings. However, that would mean the Chloe and Lana would have to be unconscious when they were turned into wax and taken from the school, to the fake school, without knowing what had happened.

Correction: They would only be able to see if their eyes were open at the moment that they were frozen. Since we don't see these moments, there's no way to tell.


Redux - S2-E6

Corrected entry: Clark is supposed to hide his powers from everyone. When the other swimmer in the final race starts to drown Clark uses his super speed to get him off of the bottom of the pool. Everyone who was in the pool area had their eyes on the drowning kid so somebody should have seen Clark just appear at his side.

Correction: People would care more about him getting saved than who was saving him, so, no, they wouldn't have noticed Clark. He likely went slow enough as to not draw too much attention, yet of course still fast enough to save the one drowning.


Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Lionel calls his company Lexcorp, however in subsequent episodes it is renamed to LuthorCorp.

Correction: Lionel's company is LutherCorp. Lex's company is LexCorp.


Kinetic - S1-E13

Corrected entry: Chloe discovers that the thieves are using kryptonite tattoos to accelerate their metabolism to hyperspeed, allowing them to reach through the space between atoms in solid objects. That's fine, but this acceleration wouldn't be consciously controlled. The thieves might be able to move through any solid objects, but they certainly wouldn't be able to pick anything up or wear clothes just because they wanted to. The metabolism shift would only affect their living cells, not adjacent nonliving ones.



Correction: Chloe doesn't "discover" this, she theorizes. Obviously, she was mistaken.

JC Fernandez

Show generally

Corrected entry: In season 9 when Callum Blue is added to play Zod, it is quite obvious that he has a British accent. How could an Alien General have a British accent?


Correction: What kind of accent is he supposed to have? American? Australian?


Reckoning - S5-E12

Corrected entry: After Clark fails to prevent the death of Lana he is emotionally devastated and in a highly distraught state wanting only to be close to her as Jonathan pulls Clark away. Given Clark's emotional state and superior strength he would have been able to easily resist this action.

Correction: This simply means that he really did not want to resist. No mistake here.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Pariah - S4-E12

Corrected entry: In the begining of the episode pariah Lana is taking a shower. They show you she turned on the cold water, but when she's attacked, steam is practically running out of the shower and the mirror is fogged. Now, if she is taking a cold shower, how is this possible?

Correction: Some time has passed, and she could have turned on the hot water off camera.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Hereafter - S3-E12

Corrected entry: Clark looks up an old newspaper article on the Internet, citing some of the information to Chloe. Subsequently, and to Clark's surprise, Chloe reveals some additional information she has dug up elsewhere. However, that very same information was also included in the newspaper article he was reading.

Correction: Where's the mistake? Clark begins reading it, and then Chloe reveals some information to him that he has not yet read in the article.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Shimmer - S1-E10

Corrected entry: Clark realizes that Amy stole Lex's watch when he sees her wearing it. He and Lex then search Amy's room with her mother and find the watch. Amy wears the watch as a token of her obsession and would not take it off lightly, even if she had returned home and left again.

00:31:45 - 00:32:50


Correction: This is your opinion on a character decision. We do not know why she took it off, but she did.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Noir - S6-E20

Corrected entry: No city in Kansas ever had elevated railways, not even in 1940.


Correction: Metropolis is a fictional city, so if the writers say it had elevated railways, then it did.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

X-Ray - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Lana says the theme of her mother's prom was Saturday Night Fever, but she was in the class of 1977 and the movie didn't come out until December of that year.

Correction: So? People often know about movies many months before they come out.

Recruit - S4-E13

Corrected entry: While Clark and Geoff are driving through Metropolis, they drive past a TD Waterhouse bank, TD standing for Toronto Dominion and only available in Canada. Filming of Smallville takes place in Vancouver, Canada. Simple geography error.

Correction: Metropolis is a FICTIONAL city. They can have branches of whatever banks they want. Also, TD is an international bank, they do business in many countries besides Canada.

Suspect - S2-E13

Corrected entry: The sheriff says that Jonathan has a blood alcohol content of 2.0. Since 1.0 is lethal, 2.0 is unimaginable. He should have said .20.

Correction: Yes he should have said .20, which makes it a character mistake.

Metamorphosis - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Clark goes to Lana's house to give her back the meteor rock necklace. As he is starting to put the necklace on the door knob. Lana calls for Whitney and you hear the "whoosh" of Clark using his super-speed to get away from the door. Kryptonite weakens Clark's powers so he should not have been able to speed away with the exposed necklace right in front of him.

Correction: He took a few normal steps back to get out of range and then he super speeds off.

Lineage - S2-E7

Corrected entry: Clark brings Pete along when he retrieves the DNA sample taken from him so that he can use his DNA to replace his. However, Pete is African American in origin and it would show in his DNA when they try to analyze it. Using Pete as a substitute DNA donor would cause further alarm because Clark is white but the DNA sample which was supposedly taken from him would result in someone of African American in origin.

Correction: There are no reliable DNA markers that can determine someone's skin color. It can give a probability of a person's origin being from a certain geographical region but it doesn't tell you if someone is black or white.

Tempest (1) - S1-E21

Corrected entry: As Jonathan reads the paper on the plant closing there is a nice up close shot of the front page. It reads "Management Problems Sited". That should be Cited, not sited.

Correction: "Dewey Defeats Truman." Newspaper headlines can have errors in them. It happens. Jay Leno has a whole bit devoted to it.

Spell - S4-E8

Corrected entry: After Chloe, Lana and Lois vanish from Clark's barn you can see Clark's chest with blood streaking down. The problem is the wounds are too far apart to have been made by Chloe's hand.

Correction: They were made by magic, since it is magic that he is vulnerable to.

Nocturne - S2-E5

Corrected entry: No matter how strong Byron is, there is no way he could keep the helicopter down, unless he is very, very heavy. He would just pull himself towards the helicopter because there is nothing holding him to the ground.

Correction: It is an established superhero convention that characters with super strength possess a level of inertia proportional to their strength. It allows them to stay firmly planted while pushing or pulling.

Nicodemus - S1-E15

Corrected entry: Clark takes Lana to the top of a windmill, and they can see Metropolis in the distance. Kansas is a completely landlocked state, and Metropolis is established as a coastal city.

Correction: No, in the Smallville universe, Metropolis is a city in Kansas that is roughly three hours drive from Smallville.

Solitude - S5-E8

Corrected entry: When Professor Milton Fine/Brainiac tries to stab Clark with the crystal while they are fighting in the Fortress of Solitude, Brainiac is holding the crystal in his left hand. But when we next see the crystal after Brainiac is impaled, the crystal is in his right hand.

Correction: Milton Fine possesses super speed. He could change which hand holds the crystal faster than someone could see. It is also screen long enough for him to do it make the transfer at normal speed.

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Clark (again in his imagined football game) begins to run down field, he knocks 4 defensive players out of his way. These are numbers 82, 72,66, and 55. When he has run many yards, not only does 82 jump and miss him again (from the front) but he jumps over the same 4 players, in the same order they were lined up before, to land in the endzone.


Correction: It was a fantasy. He can imagine jumping the same players again if he wants to.

Reckoning - S5-E12

Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the episode Clark makes a diamond by squeezing a piece of coal with his super-strength and the diamond emerges as a beautifully cut and faceted gem. Diamonds have long been considered to be one of the hardest properties on earth and even with super-strength, could not be honed to this degree by bare hands alone.

Correction: We can pretty much throw out most of the laws of physics, if they say he can make a diamond, then he can do it, either that or every single thing he does has to be considered a mistake, since none if it is actually possible.


Crusade - S4-E1

Corrected entry: When Lana is in the shower, you can see steam billowing up around her just as she turns it on. Water can't get that hot, that fast.

Correction: For some time now there has been available "point of use" water heaters, also called "tankless water heaters". If these are installed near the shower you will get hot water immediately.


Jinx - S4-E7

Corrected entry: As Clark speeds away to save Chloe, he is in the middle of a play in the championship football game. One of the other team's defenders is in the air in front of him and is going to sack Clark. Clark goes into super speed, runs to the room where Mxyzptlk has Chloe, knocks the knife out of his hand, pushes him away from Chloe, snaps the links on Chloe's cuffs, runs back out to the field to finish the game with nobody, not even the defender directly in front of his face, realizing he was gone. 1.) In order for Clark to do all the stuff he did and get back, with no one noticing, he would have to run faster than the speed of light. At that speed he would have been noticed as he broke the speed barrier several times over. 2.) The wind turbulence from his body cutting through the air that fast would also have been noticed. The wind from a car going by at 30+ mph is easily felt. Clark's speed could have easily sucked everyone off the field in his wake. 3.) Smacking Mxyzptlk's hand and then shoving his chest at that speed would have caused Mxyzptlk to suffer substantial injuries (broke wrist/hand, broken ribs) none of which he shows later on with Lex.

Correction: I disagree with this even being here. This series is fiction and you could say this statement in every episode in the series. This is not a plot hole. This is what you call fiction. We all know someone could never do the things Clark does.

Truth - S3-E18

Corrected entry: Chloe's car goes from tan when she's driving it down the road, to red when it's hanging off the bridge.


Correction: I've watched the scene several times in a row. The car is red the whole time, never tan.

Obscura - S1-E20

Corrected entry: Chloe has been put in a coffin and buried underground. However the ground above her is covered in grass. Chloe was not buried for no more than even a day. There should not be grass over her grave, and there is no signs of it being freshly dug.

Correction: It is possible to pull up the grass and its roots with the topsoil and replace it after a hole has been dug. Usually its done to keep your yard from looking bad until new grass can grow. In this case it was done to hide the grave.

Phixius Premium member

Leech - S1-E12

Corrected entry: In this episode, as Clark and his parents are first discussing his new weaknesses, the school bus stops directly in front of his farm. In every other episode, Clark, Pete, and Chloe have to walk together quite a distance to reach the bus stop where they all get on.



Correction: Not true- in the pilot you can see the bus stop outside Clark's house, then drive off.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: In the Pilot, Clark's spaceship has an almost shell-like appearance - it looks layered. Thereafter, it is smooth, almost shaped like a rounded arrow head.

00:27:45 - 00:33:00

Correction: The ship is designed so that the outer part we see in the pilot protects Clark in space from assorted dangers, then falls away due to friction in Earth's atmosphere (this can be seen on the DVD opening titles before the menus), which leaves the sturdier inner part intact for crash landing.

Truth - S3-E18

Corrected entry: Chloe records Lionel's incriminating statement and then says to him, "I have your entire confession recorded on my voice mail, and the only person that has the password is me. So if I were you, I would reconsider my father's employment situation." But Chloe's statement doesn't quite make sense. If she's the only one who can access that voice mail, then the fastest way for Lionel to prevent it from getting out would not be to indulge her, but rather to kill her as soon as possible. Chloe would only gain control over Lionel with this information if she somehow had it rigged to automatically be released unless she input the password on a regular basis, or something like that. Even Lionel doesn't acknowledge the stupdity of her statement - he says that he doesn't respond to blackmail, and offers her a completely different deal.


Correction: Chloe's been doing the investigative reporting/snooping thing for a while now. It's very likely she's made preparations for if she were to disappear or die, like a sealed letter with her voice mail/computer passwords or people other than the authorities to come looking for her if she disappears. (As we see next season, when Lois does just that.) Lionel is smart enough to consider this possibility as well.

Captain Defenestrator Premium member

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When the meteor shower occurs, Lionel is signing the contract to buy the factory. However, it comes up in a later episode that Luthorcorp is only able to buy the factory once Johnathan talks the owner into it, after Lionel got him and Martha adoption papers for Clark, which of course they didn't need until after the meteor shower.


Correction: Pete's family owned the creamed corn factory that Luthorcorp turned into the fertilizer plant. The farmer that he was signing a deal with that day may have owned other land in Smallville that Lionel was there to purchase.

Sacred - S4-E15

Corrected entry: Lois comments to Clark that they need to meet up with their tour guide in Shanghai, because she will speak fluent Mandarin, which neither of them do. However, there is a specific and well-established Chinese dialect spoken in Shanghai, called Shanghainese, which is neither Mandarin nor Cantonese, and that should be the language that their tour guide would speak.


Correction: Firstly, Lana went to Shanghai with Clark, not Lois. Secondly, she isn't being specific when she says they'll need someone who speaks Mandarin - she simply means that they'll need someone who can understand the local dialect. Someone with little or no knowledge of China would never have heard of Shanghainese, so when talking about the language they'd call it Mandarin, the more well-known dialect.


Season 3 generally

Corrected entry: In the season 3 episode with Justin, the character who can see people's deaths, we are told he was born on the day of the meteor shower. This would make him 4-5 years younger than Clark and Lana (judging by their ages in the pilot), yet he is somehow in high school with them and getting the same homework. How can this be possible?


Correction: The kid had previously been home schooled so he could have easily been advanced for his age and there fore in a higher grade than most kids his age.

Hothead - S1-E3

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the episode, Whitney says that Coach Walt's next game will be his two hundredth win. Later, while talking to the principal, Walt says that he has "been leading this team to victory for twenty-five years." Two hundred wins in twenty-five years is only eight wins per year, not really an impressive record.

00:02:25 - 00:16:50


Correction: Eight wins per year would be a winning season every year for 25 years since most high schools only play 10 to 12 games per year. I think that's impressive.

X-Ray - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Clark's x-ray vision reveals that the cemetery is rather oddly set up. There are a dozen headstones visible but only four buried coffins, and three of them don't line up with any headstone. Two of the coffins contain complete skeletons, but the other two are either empty or lead. While the occupants could have decomposed entirely, they are directly next to the younger corpses; usually cemeteries fill in one area and then proceed to another, segregating graves by age.



Correction: Cemetaries SELL plots a section at the time, but they don't fill them till the people that buy them actually get around to dying so you will frequently have series of graves belonging to the same family that only have one or two graves "occupied" but may have headstones (with no death date) for some or all of the empty ones.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode entitled "Run, Season Four: Episode Five," Bart uses Kryptonite on Clark to make sure that he doesn't get followed. This would be impossible because earlier in the show Bart says that this is his very first trip to Smallville, therefore he shouldn't have known what Clark's weakness is.

Correction: Earlier in the episode, Bart stumbles upon a box containing the kryptonite in Clark's room. Bart opens it and notices Clark is weakening. When Bart asks him what's wrong, Clark tells him to close it because he's allergic to the rock.

Exile (1) - S3-E1

Corrected entry: When Rutger Hauer first comes into Clark's apartment, Clark is topless. However the shot changes and Clark is suddenly wearing a T-Shirt.

Correction: When Morgan Edge's goons come in, they shoot Clark. Clark reaches up, grabs them,and throws them. When he asks who sent them, Morgan Edge said he did. Edge comments on Clark's scar on his chest. Clark responds with an expletive about Jor-El. He then pulls on a green t-shirt. This was not an oversight. It was planned. Ironically, the symbol on the t shirt actually looks like an upside down Krypton symbol.

Hothead - S1-E3

Corrected entry: The Coach is setting all these fires off completely gutting various departments of the school. Does nobody investigate into these like police or fire accident investigators. When Clark gets his firing-heat-from-the-eye talent later on in season 2 the cops are all over him and those fires were relatively minor in comparison...

Correction: It's possible that the police did investigate the inexplicable fires the coach caused & couldn't find a reason, so they decided to keep a eye on the school for any other mysterious fires incase of acts of arson.

Truth - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Clark is about to put the needle in Chloe, he lifts his arm and brings it down hard. Clark has superhuman strength. He would have crushed Chloe's chest and smashed the concrete.

Correction: Clark is well aware of his strength, it is his oldest power and therefore the one he has most control over. Think of it this can crush a paper cup easily, but every time you pick one up, you don't, because you don't try to. Clark can hold back with his powers when he needs to, so he could stab a needle into Chloe hard enough to puncture her sternum and enter her heart and not crush her chest doing it.

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In this episode, Clark's ship is completely different to the one shown in later episodes.


Correction: The ship is designed so that the outer part we see in the pilot protects Clark in space from assorted dangers, then falls away due to friction in Earth's atmosphere (this can be seen on the DVD opening titles before the menus) & leaves the sturdier inner part intact for crash landing.

Leech - S1-E12

Corrected entry: When Clark realises Eric might have aweakness to Kryptonite he goes to get a meteor rock. His mum says "it's not like we have them lying around" so he goes to get the one off Lana's necklace. This would be fine except at the beginning of the episode and throughout most if not all the others it is well established that there are always meteor rocks lying around on the ground, in the water, in fact pretty much anywhere you look.

Correction: Kryptonite may be plentiful, but it is not exactly everywhere, especially not on the farm, and it usually only turns up when Clark and Co. don't want it to. Besides, at the time Clark couldn't find it easily because his powers were gone and the kryptonite wouldn't affect him, so it was just faster to get Lana's necklace.

Show generally

Corrected entry: From various dates, ages, and bits of information given, we know that, at least in the first episode, everyone (everyone being Clark, Chloe, Lana, Pete, etc) is 15 years old. Do the producers really expect us to believe that they're 15 years old? Clark's played by a 24 year old for one...


Correction: Yes. This practice is used all the time, and people are often surprised to find out that their favorite actors are older than they thought.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the Smallville T.V. Show, Clark knows he has a spaceship, however, in the old Superman Television show, "Lois And Clark: The Adventures Of Superman" Clark does not know that he had a spaceship and was shocked when he heard the news from his parents.

Correction: Any continuity errors between different shows shouldn't be regarded.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: Throughout Season 1 the ages/years in school of Clark, Lana, Pete, and Chloe are inconsistent. Supposedly they're all the same age and freshmen, as Pete states in the pilot episode the football team always chooses a freshman guy to be the Scarecrow, which would make them either 14 or 15. However, they're all seen driving (or refer to driving) at least once, which would make them 16, and Sophomores.

MoonFaery Premium member

Correction: It is possible for some of them to be driving at age fifteen. Kansas allows fifteen year olds to have a Farm License, which allows them to use farm equipment and drive to and from school. There are some other possibilities as well, such as a Restricted License, read about them at Kansas' Department of Revenue website:

Charles Fraser

Slumber - S3-E4

Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the episode, Pete informs Clark that he missed a Science exam that counts for 50% of his grade. Pete tells Clark that "he flunked." Near the end of the episode, Lana asks Clark what he is doing and Clark tells her he is studying for his make-up "History" exam.

Correction: When Pete tells Clark about flunking his test, Clark was in a deep sleep. He was dreaming. Later in the episode when Lana brings him his homework, she tells him that the teacher is going to let him make up his test as long as he has a note from his parents.
