Redux - S2-E6

Duplicity - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After Pete confronts Clark about the missing space ship in his tool shed, Pete gets into his car and we see Clark put his right hand on the door of Pete's car. Cut to a different angle as Pete drives away but now Clark's hand is no longer on the door.

Phoenix

Crusade - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: While Martha reads to Jonathan, as he is in a coma, the light on his hands change. In the shot from the right side of Jonathan's bed his hands have only a normal level of light like from a small table lamp. The shot changes to look at Jonathan from the doctor's point of view and suddenly Jonathan's hands are very brightly lit like from a spotlight. No one changed or turned on any other lights between shots.

Heat - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Pete arrives when Lana was interviewing Clark for a video that she would send to Whitney. Lana then asks Pete: 'want to give it a shot?' We then see Lana holding the view finder of the camera with her left thumb and index finger while the rest of her fingers in outstretched. Cut to a different angle (as we see Pete) but now the rest of her fingers are no longer outstretched.

Asylum - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: After Clark gets his powers back the cut on his cheek heals and leaves only blood on his cheek. While still at the power generator he goes to wipe this blood off of his face with the back of his hand only in the shot just before you see his hand go to wipe, a second before his hand actually appears on screen, the blood that was on his cheek is now gone as if it was already cleaned.

Perry - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: As the telephone pole crashes falls on Perry's car the sky is bright blue with very widely spread clouds. Clark takes less than two seconds to get Perry out of the car and as he runs away from the car, with Perry in his arms, the sky now has many more clouds than before.

Obsession - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Alicia confronts Lana in the Talon, when Alicia says, "you're definitely not smarter" Alicia has the knife right on Lana's cheek. When the camera switches to behind Lana, as Alicia says, "You don't have my abilities" the knife is not on her cheek.

Gone - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: As Lana saves Lois from Trent, as Lana first starts to spray the pepper spray/mace the camera is behind Trent and the mace is coming out in a mist. The camera jumps to behind Lana and now the mace is firing in a steady stream.

Cyborg - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: Victor is up in Clark's barn loft using his laptop to read an article about his 'death'. In some scenes the laptop is turned toward Victor, while in one scene, as he says he expected to see angels when he woke up, the laptop is now turned at an angle so that the camera can be seen on the screen.

Resurrection - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: Garret is shot in the chest and the bullet is shown as hitting on the right side. Then, in the special effects shots as time is stopped and Garret is in mid-fall, his bullet wound is now on the left side of his chest.

Insurgence - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When Lana is meeting with the Small's over coffee at the Talon and Mr. Small gets more coffee for himself and is wife, he picks up his cup and his wife's. Then when he comes back he puts down the coffee for himself and Lana.

Dichotic - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: After Clark catches Chloe, he runs back on top of the bridge and we see Ian with both his hands on the railing of the dam. But in the next shot it is his arms which are on the railing, then his hands once again, in the next shot.

Red - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Clark gives his "I understand you, dad" speech at the table, he puts his left hand on his mom's right shoulder. She then holds Clark's hand with her right hand. Clark then walks across the table and as they cut to a wider angle Martha Kent's right hand is suddenly on the table.

Nicodemus - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: As Pete demands Chloe's keys he raises the gun on her. As he does you can hear the sound of the hammer being pulled back on the revolver. In the shot of the gun, as Chloe gives him the keys, the hammer is not pulled back.

Hourglass - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: As Harry goes into the pond the second time the pylons are connected now with yellow crime scene tape when the camera is out over the water looking at Harry on the walkway. As the camera is in the water, watching Harry fall in, the pylons are gone, even though they should be in the shot, and are connected by a wire instead of crime scene tape.

Asylum - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: As Clark stands outside the room where Lex has just got his shock treatment the blood on his cheek is back even though his cheek wound was healed and he wiped any residual blood off in the previous scene at the power generator.

Skinwalker - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: After Kyla dies the scene goes to the construction site as Martha and Lionel get out of a SUV. As Martha gets out you can see the camera and film crew reflected in the window of the SUV.

Noir - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, we see that the clock reads 2 o'clock. Jimmy then takes Chloe into the back room to his set-up movie date. A little into the scene, they then hear a gunshot. When they rush out, the clock now reads 4:15. However Chloe and Jimmy were not in the back room for this long. At 4:15 they find Lana shot, and call 911. Then after the credits, we return to the scene, but now the police have arrived. But now the clock reads 2:15. There is no way the police would have taken so long, that the clock would have jumped all the way around from 4:15 to 2:15, therefore the continuity on this clock is mixed up.
