"Damages" fans around the world -- including Kelly Ripa -- have become invested in the relationship between Patty Hewes and Ellen Parsons.

"The chemistry between you and Rose Byrne is my favorite," Ripa told series star Glenn Close on "Live! With Kelly" (weekdays on ABC). "And you may be my favorite on-screen couple."

Fans have long speculated about the "subtext" between Ellen (Byrne) and Patty (Close), even Close. "I get that. I kept thinking, 'What do the writers have in mind?'" she said.

When HuffPost TV hit the "Damages" set for the series finale, Close said she never incorporated any of the perceived subtext and said she thinks it's just "wishful thinking."

"I think there's something seductive about Patty and she just seduces people and she'll lead people on," Close told The Huffington Post. "I think that can come across as pure seduction."

"Damages" kicks off its final season DirecTV's Audience Network on Wed., July 11 at 9 p.m. ET.
