Suspect - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When there is a flashback of the shooting, the police officer is heard to fire 3 shots, yet in each other flashbacks it's 2 shots and there are only 2 wounds in the victim.

Smallville mistake picture

Rogue - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: In "Rogue," just after Jonathan has been arrested, Clark walks into the house and punches a wooden beam. If you look closely, you can see the crack in it where it has already been broken. (00:26:35)

Duplicity - S2-E3

Audio problem: After Pete confronts Clark about the missing space ship in his tool shed, Pete walks away and Clark tries to explain. We hear Pete say "wait 'til Chloe hears about this..." as he was getting into the car however, his lips were not moving.

Metamorphosis - S1-E2

Factual error: When the bug kid crashes his car, he's driving a VW Beetle, which has the motor in the rear, therefore would not have shut off in a head on collision.

Lexmas - S5-E9

Plot hole: Lex is shot in Granville, yet is taken to Smallville Medical Center. It looked like he was in a downtown area, and it's unreasonable to assume that there wasn't a closer hospital in Granville to which he should have been taken.


Spirit - S4-E18

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 the attack should have caused fatal injuries to Chloe. There's not even a cut or bruise or anything.


Whisper - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Clark is faced with Nathan Dean at the Auto Wrecking lot, Nathan says "In a minute, neither one of you will care," (regarding Pete Ross' whereabouts). The next shot is of the blue car that Pete is trapped in with the windows blown out. Then the shot goes back to Clark and Nathan, and the cars fall onto Nathan. Clark is then listening for Pete and when we see a shot of the blue car being crushed, this time we see the windows being smashed.

Blue - S7-E8

Revealing mistake: When Clark has the Kryptonite and uses it against Zor-El in the fortress, Zor-El climbs upon a flat surface or hard ice for support. As he gets onto the surface, it shakes like a soft prop. (00:30:20)

Commencement - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: As the helicopter that Lana is in dodges the falling meteors in mid-air, the camera shot focuses in on the cockpit. If you watch Lana's position as she first starts to appear she is semi-transparent and the frame of the window behind her is visible through her body.

Velocity - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Jonathan comes home from the hospital the length of rolled up sleeve on Jonathan's left arm changes between shots. As Jonathan says "Low sodium turkey?" the sleeve is down to just about touch the watch he is wearing. When the camera jumps to Jonathan's left side, as Martha turns around, the sleeve is now several inches higher and further from his watch than it was before. Jonathan does nothing to his sleeve between shots.

Red - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: At the bar, the agent looking for Jessie calls the barkeeper. He then proceeds to fold a piece of paper and puts down the pen which he was holding onto the bar. Cut to a different angle (as he takes out a photo of Jessie from his coat) but now the paper is unfolded and he is holding the pen in his hand again.

Redux - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Clark arrives late for school in Lex's car, he is stopped by principal Reynolds who tells him that he should have been there four minutes ago and points at his watch with his right hand. Cut to a different angle but now he is pointing at Clark with his right hand.

Krypto - S4-E14

Factual error: Clark huddles over Krypto to protect him from the blast of the exploding van. He does not cover Krypto's head before the blast of fire hits them yet Krypto shows no sign of damage. At the very least the fire should have singed his fur.

Krypto - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: Before Clark throws the two bad guys against the side of the barn there is no snow falling at this point. When the shot switches to Krypto saving Hercules you can see that now it is snowing rather heavily. This is far too fast to happen naturally.

Velocity - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In Pete's rearview mirror there is only a couple of hundred feet between Jason's car, which is in the process of crashing at the time, and the bridge. In the next shot of Jason's car almost a mile away from the bridge. Drastically different distances.

Magnetic - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: Seth fires at Clark and Clark dives behind a ride car to dodge the bullets. As Clark stands up he brushes the impacted bullets off of his shoulder. Seth says "Looks like I'm not the only one with special powers." before he turns to use his powers to pick up a ride car that is behind him. As Seth starts to get the car in the air, in the background you can see Clark is only just standing up and brushing his shoulder off again.

Red - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: While Clark is talking to the agent that he has pinned to the wall, with the billiard table, the balls near the gun change their positions between shots.

Devoted - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: As Lois and Clark talk about her leaving, Clark turns to talk to her. Before he turns around the shoulder protector is between his hand and his shoulder and the red side is facing out. In the next shot, even though he made no motion to alter the position, it is now fully on his shoulder with the black side facing out.

Fever - S2-E16

Audio problem: After the DCA shows Clark and Jonathan the metallic key, Clark says, "We need to think about mom," but his lips are not moving.

Fever - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Martha is in the kitchen and starts having a coughing fit from the toxin, she drops the pitcher of lemonade. The pitcher lands on its side and breaks, but in the next shot, the broken base is positioned upright, sitting level on the floor, the jagged broken edges waiting to impale Martha.
