Hereafter - S3-E12

Plot hole: During Clark's rescuing Lana from the fire in the basement, Clark wakes Lana just before he is grabbed by the coach.

She has Clark's ability of super speed which she uses to get over to Loder's car.

Velocity - S3-E13

Plot hole: When Clark confronts Jason Dante and tells him the race is off, one of Dante's thug friends picks up the krptonite/nitrous oxide booster tank and only then does Clark start feeling the effects of the kryptonite.

Hereafter - S3-E12

Plot hole: Outside the school, as Clark is talking to Jordan, there is a lot of people in the surrounding area. Clark looks up and sees the coach standing in the street and the car slams on its brakes to avoid hitting him, this causes the tires to screech thus drawing attention to the incident. Clark realizes that the coach is about to be hit by the car and uses his super speed to save him. Yet nobody seems to wonder how he suddenly appeared next to the coach just in the nick of time.
