We’re planning to linger in the Delena honeymoon period for as long as possible in Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries. How long might that be? Well, we’re at least looking good through Episode 2. Check out the tantalizing tweet TVD director Joshua Butler just shared, featuring Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) in a passionate embrace!

“That magic moment after a kiss when you decide that one is not enough. #DirectorPride #TVD 5x02,” tweeted Joshua, along with this steamy photo of Ian and Nina. In the fuzzy close-up, the actors’ eyes have fluttered shut and their faces are mere inches apart. Be still our beating hearts!

We’re glad to know we will be getting some quality Delena makeout time. Now that Elena is off at Whitmore College and the couple is trying the whole long distance thing, we were worried all of their interaction would happen over the phone (a la the Season 5 promo). As much as we enjoy Delena’s witty banter, we want some steamy scenes, too.

Okay, we might be getting ahead of ourselves considering Joshua mentioning the scene called for just one kiss, but we can dream! We saw the snapshot this close-up was cropped from before, when Joshua tweeted it in August, but there were no details on what was happening in the scene. We may be fishing for clues here, but it certainly sounds like Delena can’t keep their hands (or lips) off each other. That’s enough scene set-up for us!

Catch the Season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, October 3, 2013, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
