* In the season one episode "Hourglass," Cassandra Carver can see the fate of those she touches. She sees a vision of Lex In a white suit standing in a field of flowers. It begins to rain blood and the field turns into a pile of corpses. After the vision ends, Cassandra dies and Lex never hears his fate. Later, In the season 4 episode "Scare," a fear gas causes Lex to see his worst fear, Which is almost identical to Cassandra's vision (which again, he never saw). Lex's greatest fear is tragically his fate. This detail was hard to notice unless you binged the show as the episodes aired 3 years apart.
* In ''Crisis'' after a very brief discussion about Einstein's relativity Lana asks Clark "There's still something I don't understand. How did you get from the hotline to the storage unit in a split second" Only for clark to reply "It took ME more than a few seconds" considering he was probably travelling at a very fast speed then anyone even briefly familiar with Eisenstein time dilation equation will know that to him it wasn't just a few seconds

* In ''Bound'', Lex met a woman at a party and have sex with her. The next morning, he briefly met the same woman but didn't recognize her. Why? She's wearing glasses.
* In the fifth season of ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', I hated how Cyborg didn't look a slight bit like his comicbook counterpart, but just recently, it occurred to me; the point was his comicbook look wasn't necessary since it would be too conspicuous for a giant robot guy walking around and the Cyntechnics guys did him a favor by making him look 100% human since this could've been easily fixed in the comics. No real reason is given for not fixing him in the comics, so it works here.

*** Ironically (and this falls under FridgeLogic) when Clark scans Victor the only normal limb Victor has left is his left arm - which he uses five seconds later to crash Clark into a wall.
* In "Bulletproof" towards the end, Clark, Ollie, and J'onn discuss brotherhood and how having each other as surrogate brothers makes them feel like they can accomplish anything. One second later, the scene changes to Tess, who has just discovered how Lex Luthor betrayed and manipulated her, chewing him out and saying goodbye to him. We later learn that Lex was in fact Tess's biological half-brother.

* In ''Masquerade'', when Desaad attempts to corrupt [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Chloe]] with the SevenDeadlySins, starting with lust. Why does he use an illusion of Clark instead of Oliver to seduce her despite her having long since grown up from her former crush? Because the opposite of lust, chastity, originally means ''monogamy'', not ''abstinence''.

* Lex [[spoiler: losing his memories of his time in Smallville]] makes a whole lot more sense when you thinkof comic book Lex's reasons for his grudge against Superman: None, or extremely petty. That's the whole point. Now that Lex [[spoiler: has no more memories]] he is closer to the comics then before. He's an angry, cynical, selfish bastard who hates Superman and pretty much everyone else, but he has no real reason anymore. Just like in the comics where he's an angry, cynical, selfish bastard who hates Superman and pretty much everyone else, but there he had no good reason.

* In ''Arrival'', Clark promises to resume his training before sunset in return of Chloe's life, and failed to do so. However, this promise is made at the North Pole, where sunrises and sundowns are six months apart, not Smallville.

** And? Clearly that isn't the case in this continuity. What is a tad odd is that Jay Garrick is another ID and Jay ''does'' exist in the Smallville 'verse.

** This was all pre-new 52. And during this time, Speedsters were protected from friction and physics by having the Speedforce create an aura around them that would negate all problems a speedster would encounter on earth. So basically it was their Deus [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeusExMachina Ex Machina]]

* How exactly did Alia manage to keep her powers? After Zod's Solar Tower was deactivated, the Kandorians were supposed to ''lose'' all of their powers, yet not only does she continue to use them, but keeps them after travelling back in time? This is ''never'' explained!

** ImprobableAimingSkills, he only shoots to wound. That doesn't explain how he avoids getting brought up on a ton of aggravated assault charges. . .
* In "Splinter" Why was Jonathan Kent talking to Lionel a man who tried to murder a friend of the family. Lionel tried to KILL Lex. He tried to KILL Chloe. He's gone to JAIL. People don't just TALK to people like that and allow them on their property.

* In ''Crossfire'', did Clark ''intentionally'' let the last bullet go past him and stop it an inch in front of Oliver's eye, simply to make a point? Given the furious look he gives Oliver for trying to get together with Lois, even though he ''knew'' Clark is pursuing her, it seriously comes across as Clark informing Oliver, "[[DoNotTauntCthulhu Do not test my patience]]".
** RuleOfCool. Also, his scowl is probably his default expression in season 9.

* In "Splinter" you're really not sure which of Clark's paranoid delusions were real, which were partially real, and which were completely fake. Such as the truck Clark flipped over.
* In both "Luthor" and "Kent" it shows a version of Clark if he was raised by Lionel Luthor called Clark Luthor. On Earth-2, his homeworld, he is revealed to be Ultraman. In the comics, Ultraman was leader of the Crime Syndicate, an evil version of the Justice League in the Anti-Matter Universe. So if Ultraman is on Earth-2, who's to say that the other members of the Crime Syndicate(Owlman, Johnny Quick, Superwoman, Power Ring, Atomica, White Martian) aren't there, and are not currently active ?

** So Lex does have a reason to hate Superman, he just doesn't know why.

** The series also goes out of its way to show that it's Clark's time in Smallville, the lessons he learned there and the influence of his parents, that truly makes him Superman. The ghost of Jonathan Kent even lampshades it in the finale: "Always carry Smallville with you." Clark's body may be in Metropolis, but his heart, always and forever, is in Smallville.
