Red - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: After the credit card company calls the Kent's to confirm purchases made the night before, we see Jonathan holding a mug by the rim. They then notice the music coming from Clark's barn and go to investigate. Cut to a different and now Jonathan is holding the mug by its ear.

Crush - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Clark goes to Kwan's house the set of pathway lights on the left, the side where Justin pulled only one out, is gone. Earlier the lights ran down both sides of the driveway.

Obsession - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: The field trip is supposed to be on the 39th floor, as stated by Clark and the sign next to the elevator. The view outside the large windows as Lionel is talking shows that they are no more than 5 stories up.

Cool - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: At the party, Chloe's hands jump from extended to the fire to clutched in front of her as Sean approaches. (00:01:25)


Zod - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When Zod/Lex pierces Lana's hand, he pierces it at the same level as Lana's head. But in the camera angle immediately following, Lana's head slide downs the wall and draws level with her hand. (00:20:05)

Solitude - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: Chloe is sneaking around inside the warehouse that Lex is using to hide the space ship. After she is found by a security guard she turns back around to look in where the ship is. When she does a shot from her POV shows the fan blades spinning faster then they were in the shot before and after when we are looking at Chloe through the fan.

Lineage - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Jonathan runs up to Lex, while he is unconscious, the first shot of Lex has his arm bent but not near his face. The shot switches to look down on Lex and now he is laying with his hand considerably closer than the previous shot.

Vortex (2) - S2-E1

Plot hole: When Nixon and Jonathan are trapped in the crypt after the landslide, Nixon says he can't breathe, and Jonathan says this is because the landslide cut off the air supply. However, we can see beams of sunlight shining in. So, unless the ceiling of the crypt is made of airtight glass, that landslide didn't cut off the entire air supply.

Exodus (2) - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: When Clark is fighting with Dr. Walden, twice Dr. Walden sends Clark flying, with his powers. Both times, when Clark hits the ground, he becomes quite buried into the soft dirt, not entirely, but relatively sunken into it. However when it will cut to the next shot, Clark is lying on the dirt without being buried into it at all. This is obviously due to switches between actor and stunt double.

Crusade - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jason starts knocking on Lana's door, the clasp from the door chain is all the way to the left. The camera cuts to Lana in bed. When it cuts back to the door, the clasp is now all the way to the right.

Reckoning - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: Clark and Martha show up at the barn. The interior rear view mirror is missing when looking out from inside the car, but it is there when looking in the car from outside.

Phantom - S6-E22

Continuity mistake: When Clark hacks into Phillipe's police report, there is a photo of Phillipe facing sideways. In the next shot the photo has changed, so that now he is facing forward. (02:21:10)

Spirit - S4-E18

Audio problem: As the band is playing right before Clark and Lois enter the prom, the drums are not synced with the music.

Spirit - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: As Clark/Dawn goes to hit Chloe, at first the camera is behind Clark and he swings as if he is going to slap her face. The next shot, as the camera is to their side, Clark's swing changes so that he shoves her across the room.

Spirit - S4-E18

Plot hole: Clark is possessed by Dawn. Jonathan shows up and he has a chunk of kryptonite. Jonathan hides the kryptonite behind his back and Clark's body does not feel it until Jonathan takes the kryptonite out from behind his back. What, is Jonathon made of lead or something?

Truth - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: As Lana says "I was thinking the same thing but we don't seem to be very good at it." there is a camera change as she says "but". Before the change she only has the red cup on the tray but after the change, even though she didn't pick it up, she has a red and a yellow cup on the tray. The other cup was on the table and jumps to the tray between shots.

Truth - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Chloe crashes through the bridge rails her windshield is dotted with raindrops. Just a few seconds later the blue truck hits her car from behind and now her windshield is dry.

Velocity - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: After Dante says "...if you want to turn that tortoise into a hare just give me a call." he walks off and the shot follows him as he walks all the way over to a black car and starts to work on it. The shot returns to Clark and Pete and Dante is shown walking away again on the left side of the screen.

Visage - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Clark picks up Lex's cue stick, the balls on the table are spread out in an arch consisting of 4 balls. The shot switches to a low level shot looking at Lex and the balls at Lex's end, where the arch should be, are no longer forming an arch.

Ryan - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Nell meets up with Lana to talk to her about moving to Metropolis. We see Lana going up to Nell while riding a horse. She then stops and is about to dismount when they cut to another angle but now Lana is dismounting yet again.

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.
