Exile (1) - S3-E1

Other mistake: Early in the episode, Clark uses his heat vision to blow up a police car. In the shot where we see the policewoman diving for cover, there is a front view of the car as it is exploding. The license plate on the front of the car IS a Metropolis plate, however, as the plate falls off, the white placard that auto companies and dealerships place in the license plate frames on new vehicles before they are registered and which are removed once plates are installed is visible. (00:07:10)

Perry - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Perry and Clark arrive at the intersection to wait for the bus. They walk out into the intersecting road, and the bus arrives, positioned in the middle of the road, since they are standing in the right lane. Perry and Clark say their goodbyes, and a new shot of the bus from behind, shows the bus is in the right lane only as it starts up from the stop.

Jinx - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: Just before the final play of the game starts there is a shot of the scoreboard. The scoreboard reads 4th and 10 (yards) with 10 seconds to go. The announcer then says it is 4th and 1 with 10 seconds to go.

Lexmas - S5-E9

Factual error: In the 5th season episode "Lexmas," Chloe says she needs Clark to deliver the Daily Planet's Toys For Tots contribution because of a Teamsters' Strike. However, the Toys For Tots program is run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, and collection and distribution is handled by Marines and Reserves. The Teamsters have nothing to do with it.

Hothead - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, Clark, Chloe, and Pete walk past Lana and Whitney. In the following exchange between Lana and Whitney, two cheerleaders suddenly appear behind them. They're gone again as Lana walks away. (00:06:20)


Crimson - S6-E13

Other mistake: Lex picks up a chisel and stabs Clark in the side. It bounces off and out of Lex's hand. The last couple inches are bent and twisted. Chisels are made from extremely tough steel. But no matter how hard Clark is, Lex is not strong enough to exert the force necessary to bend the chisel itself.

Crusade - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: Kristin Kreuk's body double in the shower scene is noticeable. She is slightly larger and differently shaped.

Zod - S6-E1

Visible crew/equipment: Martha and Lionel are in the barn when everything starts to fall apart. The camera shot changes from them to a boat falling from the rafters. As it falls there is a visible production crewmember hiding next to the window, holding a hay bale. (00:28:15)

Vortex (2) - S2-E1

Audio problem: When Lex talks to Clark, Clark clicks his flashlight on, and you hear the click signifying he has turned it on. But in the next shot, the flashlight is now off, without another click sound heard to signify that the flashlight was turned off.

Craving - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: As Chloe enters Clark's house, Clark is putting a blue shirt on. When she first starts to talk to Clark, with the camera on Clark's right, he is buttoning the top button. When the shot switches to behind Chloe, the upper part of his shirt is open.

Hothead - S1-E3

Plot hole: Why does the principal leave so calmly when Coach Walt starts a fire in his office? He doesn't even bother to call 911, he just walks out to his car and tries to drive away. (00:17:10)


Crush - S1-E19

Other mistake: When Justin launches the chainsaw towards Chloe, Clark steps in and it breaks upon hitting his chest. However, there is no damage at all done to his clothes. There should have been at least a tear in his shirt. He's not wearing Super-Plaid.


Zod - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene between Martha and Clark near the end of the episode, the cut on Martha's forehead switches from above her right eyebrow to her left, and then back again. (00:37:40)

Krypto - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Chloe pulls up to Clark's house there are patches of snow everywhere. While Clark hears the dog crash through the fence the fields are visible through the screen door and there is no snow on the ground at all.

Kinetic - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: If you watch Clark splitting wood in slow-mo, the wood actually splits before he touches it. (00:07:35)

X-Ray - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Tina's grip on Lana's necklace changes as she stands over Lana's body. (00:37:30)


Cure - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Clark and Knox fight, Knox smashes his blue container with his weapon. Shortly after this, there is a shot where he is looking in horror at what he'd done and behind him, Chloe is struggling with her ankle cuffs. She appears to be wearing shoes in this frame, whereas before and after, she is barefoot.

Zod - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: While Clark and Zod/Lex are fighting in the field, the blood on Clark's right cheek changes throughout the scene, from disappearing, to smudging, to thick blots. (00:30:00)

Exposed - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Clark first enters the club, the stripper on stage is taking her top off, then in the next shots of her, she still has her top on.

Slumber - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Clark and Lana are on the small pier by the lake, it alternates from sunny to shady between shots during the scene.
