I heard a guy say in a movie, “I’d follow you wherever you ran off to.”

Is “to” necessary here?

Yes. You can put it either at the end or before 'wherever'.

I would say yes, although many don't see dangling preps as correct.

Sorry, just to be clear, Does it mean it is correct to say the same sentence without “to,” as in “I’ll follow you wherever you run off?”

Sorry, as a side note, I am asking you guys this because in the following sentence(a), you don’t need ‘to.’

(a) I’ll follow you wherever you go.

(b) I’ll follow you wherever you run off to.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
