Here we are in beautiful Ibiza, Spain.

Beautiful sand.

Beautiful waves.

My favorite shorts.

And my favorite girl who is about to get...

Oh, my God!


- Come on, give it to me.

- No! Stop! Come on!

- Mitch!

- This is great!

I'm serious.

Oh. Oh, my God.

That is so cute.

Honey, this is like...

Let me film for just

a couple minutes.

- It's like we're honeymooners.

- Oh, my God!




We're not married.

Katrina Harper...

You're my best friend

in the whole world.

Oh, my God.

Babe, stop it.

You're gonna make me...

If you get emotional,

you're gonna kill me.

I'm trying to get

through this, babe.

I love you, more than anything.

Will you marry me?

Oh, my God!

- Yes!

- Yeah?

Yes, Mitch Rapp.

I'll marry you.

Sorry, it's hard one-handed.

You like it?

It was my mom's ring.

I love it.

I love you.

- I'm still...

- Are you filming? Oh, my God!

Yeah, I'm still recording.

I'm trying to get this.

Come on, Mitch!

This is why I was filming now.

You see, now you get it.


I'm gonna get drinks.

- Okay.

- Yeah?

Don't be too long.

I won't, I won't.

I love you.

I'll be back.

Engagement drinks in

the water, people.


Oh. Thank you. Thank you.

Very sweet, thanks.

Babe, we're getting applause.

I love you.

Thank you.

Hola. Como estas?

What can I get you?

Um, can I just get

two drinks, please?

Dos bebidas, if that's right...

Um, I just got engaged,

so something special.

It can be anything, though.

Oh, you lucky guy.

Oh, can they be kinda

strong too? Is that cool?

Thank you, man.

Oh, whoa.

Maybe not that strong.









How are you tonight my brother?

I am ready to go on vacation.

Click encrypted link,

then download file.

We're gonna fucking set

your shit on fire, man!

Fuckin' burn,

motherfucker, burn!

To our brothers

across the globe...

Come join our fight against

American imperialism.

They will pay for the

murder of our families,

our friends, and all children.

Hold it, hold it, hold it.

What is in your heart brother?

I want to bathe my hands in

the blood of the infidels.

We are logging your

keystrokes. Answer quickly.

Who was taken in the

Year of Sorrow?

Khadijah and Abu Talib.

Who was with the Prophet

for the Isra and Mi'raj?

The Angel Gabriel.

All right, stop! Come on, man!

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Let him go, let him go.

Let him go, let him go!

Break it up. Let him go!

What the f*ck is your deal, man?

That's it. You're

done, Rapp. Get out.

He keeps doing this shit.

Get out!

Have a nice fucking day.

You were out of line.

Back to work. Keep moving.

Get outta there!

You're gonna get yourself killed,

you dumbass!

What's up with this guy?


Rapp, why I gotta

tell you again?

Sorry, Mr. Nazir. I didn't

realize it was past 10:00.

I'll try to keep it down.

Yeah, enough with the sports.

Copy that. All right.

Thanks, Mr. Nazir.

He's up again.

Will you come here?

Allah wills that I join the

struggle wherever I am called.



If it were up to me,

I would not have chosen you.

But others have

decided differently.

Whomsoever Allah guides

there is none to misguide.

What is the name of the sister

of the Prophet, peace be upon him.

Huzafa bint Al-Haarith.


She was not the

Prophet's sister.

She is honored as the sister of

the Prophet, peace be upon him...

...because both suckled from her

blood mother, Halimah al-Sa'diyah.

Why have you come?

To help Adnan al-Mansur

achieve his people's destiny.
