We're in the home stretch, Defenders fans. Luke Cage is coming in less than a month, and after that amazing first trailer, we can't wait to see Power Man's gritty, grounded new series. Now, we have all of the episode titles for the first season, courtesy of showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker, and they just make us even more excited to see the show:

Here's the full list of episode titles, which were revealed over the course of six weeks over the showrunner's Twitter:

8. Blowin' Up the Spot

9. Dwyck

10. Take It Personal

Closing quote

The episode titles aren't necessarily revealing in regards to plot, since they're all named after Gang Starr songs (although they're probably still related to the plots in some way). But they are reflective of the show's distinctive reliance on music to set the tone and build this version of Harlem. The creative minds behind the show have been open about the fact that hip-hop culture's influence is keenly felt in the show, and judging from the first teasers, it seems to add a whole new dimension to the show.

To finish it off, Coker shared a couple of bad-ass behind-the-scenes photos with star Mike Colter:
