Truth - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: Lex whispers into his father's ear something about keeping secrets. At first the view is of him less than an inch away from his ear. In the next shot he's at least six inches away.


Redux - S2-E6

Other mistake: Krissy's mutant aging reduces her to dust and ash within seconds. Oddly enough, it takes her non-mutant clothing with her. (00:36:45)


Shimmer - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: As Clark first walks up to Whitney in study hall, Clark's arm changes from bent to straight at his side. (00:29:00)


Jitters - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, as the mother tucks the blanket up to the child's neck, she changes from both hands on the infant to one hand on the crib. (00:01:55)


Dichotic - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Ian is dragging Lana towards the dam, his double can be seen in the background dragging Chloe. The double is on Chloe's right side pushing her. Cut to a close up as Chloe says "Ian you need help" but now the double is behind Chloe and is pulling her.

Facade - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When the mirror falls on Lana and shatters on her, you can see that there are bleeding cuts on the left side of her face. However, for the rest of the episode, there are no cuts on the left side of the face (where they should be) but there are cuts on the right side of her face.

Talisman - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: When Clark sees that Jeremiah is in the loft, Clark stands up and closes the book he was reading as he says "What are you doing here?". The very next shot from behind Clark shows that the book is back to being open.

Whisper - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Martha asks Clark to come out after he gets glasses. In the shot showing all three of them, Clark comes into view on the left side of the screen and is turned toward his parents. The very next shot shows he is just walking through the door of the optometrist and turned away from his parents as he closes the door.

Devoted - S4-E4

Plot hole: In order for Clark to push Jason out of the way of the already fired shotgun blast Clark would have to be moving much faster than the shot. Hitting Jason at this speed would have caused Jason some serious injuries. When Jason is with Lana at the Talon he has no damage from the shove.

Perry - S3-E5

Factual error: Perry uses a simple black rope to tie himself to the railing by his ankle. This is not a bungee cord of any kind. He falls and is stopped, jerked to a stop actually, with both his weight and the weight of Clark pulling on his ankle. This would cause a very serious sprain if not an actual broken ankle yet Perry shows no signs of being injured when he and Clark walk to the bus.

Bound - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: As Clark says "Eve Andrews was wearing two earrings when she died," during the line there is a camera change. Before the change Lionel has both arms on the table, but after the change he has one arm up examining the earring.

Lineage - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: As Jonathan and Martha drive away in the truck, we see Rachel for the very first time and she has both her hands in her coat pockets. Cut to a close up but now her hands are outside the coat pockets.

Cool - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Sean is in the nurses office, having his temperature taken, the light on his left side is on. After the nurse wants to retake the temperature the light is now off.

Delete - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Molly first starts flipping through the disks for Lex, she has a ring on her left ring finger. After Lex talks about just getting back Molly is shown still flipping through the disks only now the ring is gone.

Skinwalker - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Joseph, Kyla and Clark are at the Talon, in the scene after Joseph is bailed out of jail. Martha comes in and walks over to the three of them. The next shot has her stopped next to Clark, with no forward movement to indicate she is still walking to him. In the shot after that she is still walking up to Clark.

Hug - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Kyle first confronts Rickman in his office and challenges him to a handshake, Rickman looks away. In the next shot on Kyle, Rickman is looking at him again. (00:13:20)


Phantom - S6-E22

Continuity mistake: Shortly after their cell phone conversation, Lionel see Lana and gets out of his car. In one of the shots of Lionel, his car has disappeared from behind him.

Lockdown - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: Lex's aide is shot in the back as he makes a run for the door. When he goes down he slides head first almost all the way to the door. A few moments later, just as Flynn shoots out the security camera, in the security monitor image Lex's aide is now in a different position.

Krypto - S4-E14

Revealing mistake: As Krypto presses the button to open Hercules' cage you can hear the button beep as if it has been pressed but the green light is still on. Earlier the beep which means the button worked also turns off the green light.

Asylum - S3-E9

Audio problem: When Lex gets outside and makes a run for the gate you hear the sound of Lex running on a gravel or small stone covered walkway. However, several time we are shown his feet and he is actually running on a regular concrete walkway.

Rush - S2-E14

Chloe: Can you fly?
Clark: I'm an alien, not a cartoon.

Trivia: Clark always wears blue and red clothes (or at least one of these colors). No surprise that when he got his Superman costume, he chose those same colors.
