Modern Love does have some low episodes, but there’s one that stands out from all of them. Anne Hathaway is a star and she deserves an Emmy.

If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that Anne Hathway has been a star from the very beginning. Each performance she proves just why she is a household name. Modern Love made it clear that she needs an Emmy after her performance.

The anthology series certainly has its highs and lows. There are some episodes that are a bit of a snoozefest, but the great episodes more than make up for that. Hathaway’s performance stands out from all the rest and makes this series worth watching. Even if you’re not going to sit through all eight episodes, you need to watch Hathaway’s episode.

More from Amazon Originals

Amazon Prime Video recently shared a clip from the episode. Hathaway’s Lexi is sitting in a diner with Quincy Tyler Bernstine’s Sylvia. After a comment about Lexi’s switch from guy to guy, Lexi decides it’s finally time to open up to someone about her mental illness. She’s bipolar and Sylvia is the first person she’s told.

In this one scene alone, we can feel the weight of the confession. Yet, you see the relief of her telling someone and that fear of being judged. There’s the look of shock but joy as Sylvia puts Lexi before her meeting, making it clear that Sylvia is a friend that Lexi needs and deserves right now.

Even without watching the entire episode, you’ll get a sense of what’s in store for Lexi throughout Modern Love Episode 3. Bipolar disorder has affected Lexi’s whole life but she’s never found someone she trusts enough to talk to about it. Instead, she’s been, what she describes as, the worst friend imaginable because she struggles to deal with the highs and lows of her illness.

“Take Me As I Am, Whoever I Am” is a powerful episode within itself. Hathaway’s performance is the entire episode. We laugh, we cry, and we want to see her happy. But it’s also easy to see it from the other side, the side that can’t quite deal with everything she’s going through.

Modern Love gives us a look at love in all its forms. We knew that there would be some standard rom-com episodes, but Episode 3 is a turning point. It makes it clear that it’s willing to stand out, and Hathaway gave one of her performances of her whole life. Can she please be acknowledged for that with an Emmy?
