William Dey (Dean Buscher/The CW)

William Dey (Staz Nair) is hated by all 'Supergirl' fans. That's the long and short of it. No matter what the poor guy does, fans are just irritated with him and think the writers are trying to force a romance between him and Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist).

Lately, in the show, Dey has been trying to help out with Leviathan and bring down Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer). In a genius move, he decided to walk down a dark and mysterious alleyway in the latest episode and get himself kidnapped by Eve Tessmacher. *Groan*. Fans are really not wasting tears over it, least of all the Supercorp fans. Fans really don't want to see Kara go and rush to rescue him. 

"Please don't make supergirl /kara rescuing William a romantic thing or whatever... We don't need it," a fan tweeted. "I’m just worried they are going to have Kara save William next week and kiss him. Surly they know better than to end the season with that kind of awful scene. Riots will breakout and no one will watch season 6 for sure," wrote another fan.

"IF THEY MAKE KARA SAVE WILLIAM AND MAKE IT LOOK ROMANTIC I WILL THROW HANDS!!!" a fan wrote.

"Oh no!! Eve has captured William!! Kara is going to freak when she finds out!!" wrote a fan. Fans are exasperated that William decided to follow Eve, because the woman is capable of killing people easily. "William are you seriously following Eve. She can literally kill you with her own hand," wrote a fan.

"I won't be upset if William turns up dead," a hopeful fan wrote. "'I'm actually cool with William dying," tweeted another.

"William how stupid are you,' wrote another irritated fan. "William omg after eve... KILL HIM EVE KILL HIM KILL HIM KILL HIM PLS," a fan tweeted. Well, these hopes and dreams won't come true, because we saw William alive in the promo for the finale.

"William is just so unecessary. He really is not needed on the show," a fan wrote.

Will William Dey be collateral damage in the fight between Kara, Lex and Leviathan? Even if he is, fans really won't shed tears over it.
