And now for the last and longest list of all - Clark himself getting saved by another person. Thanks to tariel22 for the idea. There are probably more mini saves with someone tossing away a random chunk of kryptonite that I don't count. Generally, the saves I've included are the resolution to the story's crisis so occur about 2/3rds of the way through the episode. The crisis is the low point for the protagonist, so in Smallville many episodes will have someone getting the upper hand on Clark. Then he gets saved (or saves himself which is often the case), then he goes and confronts the big bad in the climax. The Pilot is a classic example of a fantastic crisis leading to a powerful climax.
Less frequently, Clark is saved as part of the climax itself. This is usually a less effective storytelling approach because the protagonist is put into the passenger seat. It works best in a Clark gone bad situation or when the person who saves Clark is in fact the protagonist of the episode (for example, Lex in Memoria).
I'd appreciate comments and corrections, particularly if I've overlooked an episode. Thanks!
