Please let this be part of one of Glee's over-the-top dream sequences!

The Fox musical is bringing back Max Adler, who played McKinley High bully Dave Karofsky, for a major arc in the show's final season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Adler will appear in at least four of the show's final 13 episodes. However, the real head-scratcher is that when Karofsky returns, he may be romantically entangled with Blaine (Darren Criss) — a baffling report not only because Blaine and Kurt (Chris Colfer) ended Season 5 on a very good note, but also because Karofsky bullied Kurt relentlessly because of Kurt's sexuality during the show's second season.

In fact, it was largely because of the terrible treatment Kurt received from Karofsky and others at McKinley High that drove him to enroll at Dalton Academy, where he met his on-and-off love Blaine.

Glee's best and worst performances

It was eventually revealed that Karofsky bullied Kurt because of his struggle with his own homosexuality. In Season 3, he even tried to commit suicide after being outed at his new school, but his attempt failed. After heavily recurring in Glee's earlier seasons, Adler last appeared as part of a dream — or should we say nightmare — sequence last season.

He has recently been recurring on Switched at Birth.
