  • “Dima Labes” by Klay BBJ and Rayan (00:49:00): Khadijah goes undercover in Morocco.

The track continues as Khadijah describes her first kill in Afghanistan, and how she tracked a phone to a “secure location” in a man’s bum. The music plays as the group inquires about Marie’s past.
  • “Boys Wanna Be Her” by Peaches (01:55:00): Mace and Marie part ways after capturing Nick Fowler (Sebastian Stan). The 355 soundtrack song kicks in as the characters say goodbye and anticipate more action together. The music scores the final shot and end credits.
