The New Directions face off against the Warblers at Glee Sectionals this year, but Blaine (Darren Criss) just might be performing with the Warblers — at least if the boys of Dalton have anything to say about it!

Sebastian (Grant Gustin) and the Warblers return to Glee for Season 4, Episode 7: “Dynamic Duets,” and they are determined to convince Blaine that he’s better off transferring back to his old school. But while new Warbler Hunter (Nolan Gerard Funk) and his crew make a compelling case, are they able to win Blaine over in the end?

Not a chance! An on-set photo proves that Blaine is still dressed in the New Directions performance outfit for Sectionals. No Warbler blazers for him. There’s even video footage of him performing onstage with the New Ds during the competition.

But what about after Sectionals are over? For a while, we were concerned that Blaine might decide to transfer a couple of episodes down the line. However, Glee creator Ryan Murphy has tweeted evidence that suggests Blaine will be sticking around Lima for quite a while.

Ryan tweeted a photo that very clearly shows Blaine sitting in Sue’s office during Glee’s Season 4 Christmas episode, and he’s also told fans on Twitter that Blaine will feature heavily in Season 4, Episode 11, which will focus around a Sadie Hawkins Dance at McKinley High

Long story short: There’s no need to fear. Blaine Anderson isn’t going anywhere!
