The Smallville Knockout Count

by Neal Bailey

Reviewing the "Smallville" series as I did for many years, I and the cohorts I watched the show with noticed a funny thing... there were a lot of repetitive and somewhat strange elements in the show. Someone was always getting knocked out, someone was always going from happy-go-lucky to terminally homicidal, and there were a lot of good people getting arrested. Also, Clark wasn't very careful with his secret.

Now I know, it's a TV show... that's not the point here. The point is, when you analyze the show, as a reviewer tends to do, you see things outside of the spell that the cast, the score, and cinematography, your basic mise en scene, is allowed to weave, dumbing you down. And besides, it's just funny to see who has the most brain damage.

So, I instituted this totally documented KO Count... enjoy!

Note: A knockout can be several different kinds of lost consciousness... exhaustion, conks on the head, evil flowers, Clark love taps, it's all relative, subjective, and my stinking verdict... sorry if you disagree. :) A loss of consciousness is a loss of consciousness.

  • Ian Randall died three times, once falling off a dam, once killing another version of himself, and once being punched by a super-powered Eric Summers (209, 309)

Aaaaand, the QUADRUPLE whammy: 3
  • Chloe (Died in a dream sequence, then got better in 612, died to save Lois in 701, SPLORT-ed by Doomsday in an imaginary scene in 816, and co-stabbed in 909 by a Kryptonian ninja)

Aaaaand, the OCTUPLE whammy: 1
  • Lex Luthor (Died from a gunshot wound, briefly, 509. Died as a result of Lance's serum, then got better, 517. "Died" to become the vessel of General Zod, 522. Died before being resuccitated by Green Arrow's serum, 607. Died in Jimmy's Noir fantasy, 620. Died as a result of a gunshot between the eyes. Chloe made him better, 712. Lex also blew up, in 814. Lex Luthor's clone, with all of his memories, dies of being poorly made in 1001 (it's also implied that many defective clones are also killed)).

Aaaaand, the MULTI-whammy: 12
  • Lana Lang saw her own death in bed in "Hourglass". Lana Lang also died in "Crisis" when shot by Adam Knight. Through miraculous time travel, she survived. Lana later died to become a Vampire in "Thirst", only to be brought back to life. Finally, she died in "Reckoning", only to be ressurected. How? You guessed it. Through miraculous time travel. Furthermore, in "Void", she died once off camera (we know) and once on camera (we know) to see her parents, though it is assumed she had done it multiple times and developed a dependence. To be kind, I'll call that three deaths. Then, to be thorough, we saw her die in "Lexmas", in Lex's hallucination/coma. And in "Labyrinth", in Clark's hallucination, she literally bought the farm. But wait! Lana's not done dying yet! In 620, Noir, she died in Jimmy's fantasy world. But she ain't done croaking for drama yet! In 622, she flat out exploded, stealing Chloe's riff! In 715, Lana is placed into an IRREVOCABLE COMA! This may be the last one, folks.

Lana Secrets and Lies:
These are the times when Lana has kept a secret or told a lie, despite her absolute, violent, vehement stance against secrets and lies from Clark and others.

  • In Lucy, she lied about the stone being stolen, lied that she did not care for the stone.
  • In Facade, she lied to Lex about why she needed the books.
  • In Crusade, she didn't tell Jason about her memory loss, a lie of omission.
  • In Gone, she was holding back telling Clark about Jason, a lie, until Lois told him.
  • In Magnetic, she lied to Clark about where her boyfriend was. She was being controlled, but note that when Clark is manipulated and he lies, she holds him accountable.
  • In Tempest, she lets Whitney think he's still the only one she cares about.
  • In Thirst, she "forgets" to tell Clark she's enrolled in college as a passive aggressive way to avoid telling him that she doesn't want to go to the same college.
  • In Splinter, she doesn't tell Clark about the alien ship, and lies to him about doing her homework when she was actually plotting the ship's trajectory. She also declines to tell him that she's working with Lex to figure the ship out.
  • In Splinter, Lana tells Clark that there could NEVER be anything between her and Lex. Not "isn't", "could never be." Lo and behold, they're lovers by the end of the season. Lie!
  • In Fanatic, she told Clark she was no longer researching the meteor shower, but went ahead and did it anyway before rubbing it in his face.
  • In Lockdown, she told Clark she came over to study when really, she just wanted to have sex.
  • In Lockdown, she told Clark she was done studying the crash, but still had schematics in her backpack, which Clark finds.
  • In Lockdown, she told kidnappers she knew where the Fine ship was. She was lying. She didn't know. (Still counts!)
  • In Reckoning, she said that whatever Clark told her, it would be okay. Instead, she went and whined about it to Lois and Lex. That means she lied.
  • In Tomb, she went to Lex for help with Chloe without telling Clark about it. That's a secret.
  • In Hypnotic, she told Clark she had to go home because it was getting late. Immediately. Instead, she went to see Lex and collude about the ship.
  • In Void, Lana pretends that all is well when she is really addicted to a drug. That's a secret.
  • In Fragile, she explicitly and vehemently, to the point of browbeating Chloe, insists that nothing is going on between herself and Lex. She then leaps on him, making out after he kisses her. Lie.
  • In Fade, Chloe reveals that Lana has asked her to explicitly lie to Clark about having a relationship with Lex. She later confirms this herself.
  • In Oracle, she lies three times. First, she tells Lois she's getting coffee for Chloe. It's for Lex. Then, she remains silent when Lois asks her what her capacity is with Lex, which is girlfriend, a lie of omission. Then, thirdly, she tells Lois flat out that she's not Lex's girlfriend, a direct, explicit lie.
  • In Vessel, Lana told Lex Luthor that Clark Kent was planning on killing him. This isn't the case. Clark was considering how to stop Lex, and Lana overheard parts of the conversation and assumed. This is a lie from ignorance, like if I said, "Steve hates Superman" because I heard him speaking critically of the Smallville finale.
  • In Zod, she tells Zod she wants to be his mistress. She then tries to stab him. SECRETS! LIES!
  • In Sneeze, Lana doesn't tell Lex that Clark knew he was going to be occupied by Zod before he was occupied by Zod. That's a lie of ommision.
  • In Sneeze, Clark asks Lana if she knows about any plots against Lex's life. Lana doesn't tell him of the plot she knew about from personal experience. Lie of omission.
  • In Sneeze, Lana tells Lex that he can trust her. Despite the obvious character evidence to the contrary, she snoops through his things, does things to jeopardize his life, and just generally acts untrustworthy for the whole episode. Liar.
  • In Wither, she tells Chloe she stopped by to drop off stuff she forgot. She instead really came just to talk, and lied at first. LIAR!
  • In Wither, Lana finds she has a late library book. In other words, she told the library she'd return the book on time, and that was a LIE! SECRETS! LIES!
  • In Arrow, Lana has a meeting with Lionel behind Lex's back (or so she thinks) and pretends to work with Lionel. She's actually working with Lex. But that's a SECRET.
  • In Arrow, Lana tells Lex that she lied to him about knowing that the sigil from the premiere can be used as a weapon. LIAR!
  • In Arrow, Lana tells Lionel that she'll work with him to take th sigil from Lex. LIAR!
  • In Fallout, Lana steals Lex's limo. She tells him it's to go for ice cream. She instead secretly meets with a man who has the arbitrary plot device that can destroy the world against Lex's wishes. SECRETS! LIES!
  • In Fallout, Lex is going to tell Lana if he would have chosen the box or her. Technically, this is Lex's lie, but by passive aggressively indicating he should not respond by saying, "I guess we'll never know!", she created Lex's secret for the both of them. SECRETS!
  • In Rage, Lana goes to see Chloe about Lex's programs without informing Lex, going behind his back. Secret.
  • In Rage, Lana faints in front of Chloe, who asks her if something is wrong. Lana asks her not to tell anyone about the fainting. Secret.
  • In Rage, Clark visits Lana, asking her if something is wrong. She says, "It's nothing. I'm fine." Really, she's upset that she's pregnant. Lie.
  • In Rage, Clark asks Lana, "What did Lex do?" She replies, "He didn't do anything!" He got her pregnant, which is why she's upset. Lie.
  • In Rage, Lana tells Clark that her sadness has nothing to do with him, despite vehemently in the past swearing that he's the reason she's so distraught and turned to Lex, all the while flaunting how "happy" she is.
  • In Rage, Lane finds out she is pregnant and keeps it secret from most everyone.
  • In Rage, Lana tells the doctor she's only been unconscious three times recently. As our own knockout count shows, that's a lie.
  • In Static, Lana tells Chloe that she's talking to Lex's security goons when she's talking to Lex's kidnapper. She also keeps her pregnancy secret for most of this episode from Lex, and continues to hide it from everyone else but Chloe.
  • In Hydro, a large focal point of the plot is the fact that Lana still has feelings for Clark, something she doesn't tell Lex until he sees it in the paper. SECRET!
  • In Crimson, she admits to hiding her pregnancy from the public because she's afraid of what they'll think. SECRET!
  • In Crimson, Lana hides her engagement party from Clark Kent, even inviting Chloe and Ma Kent. SECRET!
  • In Trespass, Lana told Lex that she was afraid of the paparazzi and it caused her to panic. She was really being stalked, and had evidence, and thus endangered her own life and her unborn child. LIE!
  • In Trespass, Lana indicated that she was okay with Chloe not telling her Clark's secret. LIE!
  • In Trespass, Lana then tried to break into Chloe's computer to find out Clark's secret. In SECRET!

  • In Action we learn Lana has kidnapped Lionel and had him harmed grievously, then keeps it a SECRET from Clark.
  • In Lara, Lana asks Chloe to keep secret her new meteor freak rehab facility. Despite the fact that she already told Clark, making it irrelevant but nonetheless an assumed perpetrated SECRET!

  • In Siren, Lionel points out she said she will not rest until Lex is in jail. Lana says she has given up that quest to be with Clark, making her earlier statement a bold-faced LIE.

Dumbest uses of Kryptonite:
  • Blowing up Kryptonian spaceships
  • Powering cars
  • Tattoos
  • Sending telephone calls into the past
  • Plastic surgery
  • Love potion gatorade
  • Jelly
  • A serum which kills people, before bringing them back to life (Why not use a sedative?).
  • Green K perfume as an antidote for Red K lipstick.
  • Combination truth serum, sedative, and memory enhancer.
  • Kryptonite Stride gum.
  • The decorative Kryptonite watch band.
  • The Krypto-Death shower for Davis.
  • To counterfeit money.
  • Again as a memory enhancer/brain wave syncing catalyst (the first time wasn't apparently enough).
  • Causes super hypnosis.

He did WHAT with Kryptonite? And he's still alive?
  • 302: Had Kryptonite strapped to his chest in a moving van for about a half an hour.
  • 319: Dipped into a liquid VAT of Kryptonite, and instead of dying, his MEMORY is enhanced. Well, that and the room blows up.
  • 404: Drinks liquid K, just gets a tummy ache and a bloody nose.
  • 517: Injected with K serum, and DIES. Apparently, dying neutralized the Kryptonite (WHAT?)
  • 611: Stayed in a room exposed to Kryptonite for the entire time it took Chloe to get to Ollie's apartment, Ollie and the JL to suit up, and then find and rescue Clark, likely between a half an hour to three hours.
  • 618: Lay with a rock for what must have been several hours waiting for Martha to get home.
  • 619: Trapped himself in a cavern filled with K for a good solid 20 minutes, lifting boulders while doing so.
  • 706: Kara is given a Kryptonite IV drip, exposed to Kryptonite in handcuffs, and recalls things instead of dying.
  • 814: Made out with a being almost wholly made of Kryptonite energy.
  • 822: Had a dart filled with liquid K in his blood stream for some time.
  • 909: Had it pumped into his body somehow (through his hand) and had his memory synched with Lois for some time with no real ill effects (Yeah, seriously)
  • 1001: Despite having no powers because he's been shivved with Blue K, Clark survives a fifteen to thirty story fall without being liquified, and merely "teeters on the edge of death".
  • 1006: Despite having no powers because of Blue K, Clark somehow survives being buried alive and gutted, and despite no sun at all, regains his powers and springs from under the ground. Later, for some reason, Blue Kryptonite burns him but doesn't kill him (IE he still retains some form of invulnerability).
  • 1009: Under a Kryptonite based cage, Clark is in a building that is blown up, and, well, survives somehow (it's never explained).
  • 1021/22: Gets half an inch from gold K and doesn't lose his powers forever.

Fuzzy Math:
Clark said he would finish his training after he took care of all the escapees from the Phantom Zone. When Clark escaped from the Phantom Zone, we counted exactly 7 "points of light" in the sky. Through the episodes, 8 are now accounted for:
  1. Clark, a physical Kryptonian in the Zone, is alive and well on Earth.
  2. "Plant-Woman", a physical alien in the Zone, is killed by Clark.
  3. Raya, a physical Kryptonian in the Zone, is killed by Baern.
  4. Baern, a phantom alien in the Zone, inhabited Bow-Wow before being captured in Jor-El's crystal by Clark.
  5. "Batista/Bone-cruncher", a physical alien in the Zone, is killed by Martian Manhunter.
  6. "Dr. Hudson/dream-maker", a phantom alien in the Zone, inhabited Clark before being captured in Jor-El's crystal by Martian Manhunter.
  7. Titan, a physical alien in the Zone, is killed by Clark.
  8. Bizarro, a guy who rips off Clark's DNA.

This means that all of the Phantom Zone villains are accounted for, and Clark should be finishing his training. On beyond the 7 will be chronicled here as FUZZY MATH!

Girls Mature Faster Than Boys:
Times when Kara, though more mature than Clark, apparently, because she can fly, acts far more immature than her cousin:

  • Kara: Smashes people who touch her "stuff." Throws open elevator doors impetuously.
  • Fierce: Kara vandalizes a statue in order to gain popularity, and enters a beauty contest with vapid idiots. She also rips a car door off right in front of villains.
  • Cure: Kara calls Martian Manhunter his equivalent of a racial slur, then leaves in a huff when she doesn't get her way.
  • Lara: Kara seduces a guy for information, arousing him then leaving.
  • Lara: Kara steals a wallet, breaks into a facility unmindful of her powers, and gets caught and tortured for her stupidity.
  • Lara: Kara uses Jimmy's friendship to borrow his computer to hack the US mainframe.
  • Lara: Kara physically attacks Clark over a disagreement and bursts through a ceiling, causing property damage.
  • Blue: Kara almost lets the world's population of humans die because she instinctively trusts her dad, who she already knows to be clinically insane.
  • Hero: Kara moves in with Lex Luthor, a man she has known for only days, on a whim, despite people telling her that he's a tyrant.
  • Traveler: Instead of directly questioning people to find out her identity, Kara makes the emotionally and mentally immature decision to have her brain cut into by Lex Luthor.

Plot Devices of No Real Relevance but Much Seeming Import

Interesting inconsistencies and whatever is left over (my version of the Wall of Weird):

In the pilot (101), it is noted that there is a Scarecrow every year. What happened last year? There was no Scarecrow... at least that we know of.

Lana loses her job in a coffee bar early on in the series (103), then goes on to own a coffee bar, and Lex Luthor, the greatest business criminal mind of our time, considers her a good investment?

In Hourglass (106) Clark drops a glass in front of a blind woman, but fails to catch it with superspeed... density, or strategy?

Jonathan, you might be interested to know, is a fatalist. In 105, he suggests that no one can change the future... just wait until Lex nukes California!

With regards to the future... Clark sees the tombstones of all of his friends and family... does this mean that this continuity's Clark is immortal, or that all of his loved ones will die in his lifetime?

What in the world is up with Nell? She's talked about all the time, but we hardly ever see her...

Check episode 110 for what appears to be a brief but continuity inspiring cameo by the waitress tortured by Harry Bollston in Hourglass when Clark and Chloe sit down to speak right after the credits.

In 115 "Nicodemus", watch a cupboard behind Jonathan and Martha when he goes to get "frisky" with her a second time (in ten minutes, no less). It OPENS ON ITS OWN!

In 318, we see Smallville football players and cheerleaders during spring. The Smallville football season must go on INCREDIBLY LONG!

In 801, when Manhunter takes Clark into space, he's wearing one set of clothes. When they return, Clark is wearing another set! Meaning...

In 1006, Lex Luthor (as an aging clone) shaves his head, and drops a pair of clippers. Problem is, he has a smooth head, and the clippers would have just made his hair very short.

And that's it!
