There are so many good episodes of The Defenders, but which ones really stand out? Do you like "Ashes, Ashes" the best, or is "Royal Dragon" your favorite episode of The Defenders? Even though there will be no The Defenders season 2 on Netflix, the episodes we do have are great. To determine once and for all what the best episodes of The Defenders are, let's rank every The Defenders episode from best to worst.

The Defenders on Netflix was a limited miniseries that brought together four Marvel Cinematic Universe characters: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, who each had their own series as well. The Defenders, which premiered for streaming on July 31, 2017, is set a few months after the second season of Daredevil and one month after the events of season one of Iron Fist.

 

Vote up your favorite episodes of The Defenders, and downvote any bad episodes that you really didn't enjoy, despite how much you love the series as a whole. It can be painful to put one The Defenders episode over the other when there are so many good ones, which is why you can vote on however many episodes you like.
