Muchos gracias to Judy Yam, CW TV Publicist, for tweeting this new TVD still. This pic of Damon and Elena hugging breathes new life into our Delena obsession.

Fans and followers are speculating the hug is more about comfort than sex (check out Elena’s super sad expression!) — but we can’t help but notice the oversized shirt she’s wearing. Totally not hers!

What do you guys think is going on here? Oh, January 27th, you can’t come soon enough.
