There are embarrassing hugs and then there is this. Looking at it too long is so difficult because it has every component of an awkward hug that should be avoided. Insecure tackled it really well though, making sure we would analyze our hug etiquette before every new one.
There are times when you shouldn't be hugging and that has to include when the other person is kissing their significant other. Nick seems pretty happy about being included in this hug, but it is just strange to experience and definitely makes you reevaluate third wheeling in the future.
Jim and Pam had some of the most iconic romantic moments in the nine seasons of The Office. Their relationship was a wonderful journey to go in, but it did see some rough patches and this hug is one of them. Pam may have hugged Jim after she realized that they were worth fighting for, yet for a minute or so she just left him hanging.
The 100 Once Again
Here we have Monty and Echo hugging, but then if you look behind them you see Harper. Now, Harper hasn't exactly been at the center of most things this season on The 100 and this goodbye scene wasn't any different.
