'Supergirl' Season 5 Episode 19: Bring back Mon-El, say fans who just can't see Kara and William working out
Fans are just irritated with William Dey's presence on 'Supergirl'
Just the presence of the hapless William Dey (Staz Nair) on 'Supergirl' is enough to get on the fragile nerves of fans. They have been slamming his presence on the show, especially for his lack of chemistry with Kara (Melissa Benoist), and are insistent that showrunners are just desperately trying to force the couple to happen. You can't disagree entirely with fans, because there really isn't much to the couple.
There have been hints of romance throughout the season, but it has been so half-heartedly done that you begin to wonder whether the creators and the actor's hearts were really in it. It has none of the tension of "Karamel" (Mon-El and Kara), that somehow managed to reduce us to tears with each dialogue. Of course, Supercorp fans will wish otherwise.
At the end of the previous episode, we saw William being kidnapped by Eve Tessmacher. In this episode, he got shot and fans still don't care. Some of them are just disappointed that he hasn't been killed off yet. Kara arrived in time to save him and cauterized the wound, so we're guessing that we'll see more of him in the next season. However, do we need to? For quite some time, Kara has been doing pretty well for herself without a love interest.
And if we are not bringing back Mon-El, why force this romance down our throats? William and Kara have barely even spent time together. There was at least a full story woven around Kara and Mon-El. Well, here are some of the best fan reactions to this episode. Some firmly maintain that Supercorp (Kara and Lena) should be canon, but would willingly settle for Mon-El too.
"#Supercorp its the best history that @TheCWSupergirl have The romantic undertones are more strong and solid than this William boy nonsense romance do us a favor If Lena and Kara are not gonna be Endgame Bring Mon-el back. Bc #Karamel makes more sense than William," wrote a fan. Another fan noted that Kara just looks uncomfortable around William. "At this point in #Supergirl all it looks like is William likes Kara while Kara legitimately looks disgusted and uncomfortable around him all the time, its unrequited affection because she doesn't like him back. Kara is in love with Lena and just hasn't had that breakthrough yet."
"Wrap up Lex, Leviathan and William Dey in the first few episodes of season 6 pretty please and than never bring them back on #Supergirl Thank you @TheCWSupergirl
@SupergirlStaff @jessicaqueller," wrote another fan. "I like the fact they totally forgot William," tweeted a fan. What's going to William Dey next season? Are you one of the few fans who actually care?
