Leech - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: When Clark gets hits by lightning whilst trying to save Eric, you can see that Eric is a stunt double.

Pilot - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the scene where Lex crashes into Clark, the close shot shows Lex driving, but the far shot shows an obvious stunt double behind the wheel.


Reckoning - S5-E12

Other mistake: When he takes Lana to the Fortress of Solitude, Clark squeezes a rock and when he opens his hand we see a perfectly cut diamond. Problem here is that in the real world, diamonds don't come out of the earth already cut and shaped. (00:04:20)

Scare - S4-E10

Factual error: When Lionel is leaving the prison, there is a bus unloading convicts as he walks past. No prison in the world would ever unload inmates and release an inmate in the same area at the same time.


Visage - S2-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Tina, disguised as Lana, throws Pete against the lockers, you can easily see that it's Pete's stunt double.


Red - S2-E4

Other mistake: The physics of what happens to the mallet after it hits the ring are completely unrealistic. No matter what the actual composition of red kryptonite contains, there is no way that it could reflect all of the force that was impacted upon it. Clark was also weakened by the green kryptonite. Jonathan's swing of the mallet and Clark's weakened strength would not have allowed him to keep his arm out after being struck by the mallet.


Kinetic - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When we first see the meteorite tattoos on Wade Mahaney, they are all green. When Clark sees Whitney's tattoo, it is plain black. It was also faded, which means it's not a fresh tattoo. Whenever Clark runs into the other guys, he feels the effects of the meteor rocks, but never when he is alone with Whitney.


Redux - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Chrissy kisses Troy in the beginning on the episode, it takes him a few minutes to age and die. Later in the episode, she kisses Russell and in a matter of seconds he is old and gray.


Season 7 generally

Continuity mistake: In "Persona" when Phantom Clark finds Lana on the balcony with her phone pressed against her ear, she lowers the phone down to her waist twice between shots.

Heat - S2-E2

Plot hole: When Clark uses his heat vision to heat the metal door handle to prevent Desiree from escaping, he only heats one handle. I know that things were happening fast, but it wouldn't have taken him that much more time to heat both handles, which he should have done since there is no way he could have known that she would have tried that particular handle.


Season 7 generally

Continuity mistake: In "Persona" when Lana comes in with her brown bag of groceries, she puts the vegetables and wine bottle on the counter. During the rest of the scene these items move their positions a few times.

Truth - S3-E18

Factual error: Clark lifts Chloe's car by the back. He is only holding on to the very back left portion of the car, yet while he's turning it, the car is completely horizontal. The front of the car would buckle since it weighs so much and isn't being handled by its center of gravity.


Season 8 generally

Plot hole: Though it fits the general plot of Davis always being first on scene, in the real world no on-duty paramedic drives the ambulance alone. There will always be a minimum of two EMTs per ambulance, one to drive and one to tend the patient. The only time a paramedic or other EMT will be alone is if they arrived on the scene in their own vehicle.
