‘The Exchange’ Episode 4: Recap And Ending, Explained: Did Farida And Jude Reconcile Their Previous Bond?

In the previous episode of “The Exchange,” Farida and Munira invested in Al’Rae’s stocks, and as Munira expected, the prices went up, and they doubled their investment. Despite their differences, the duo becomes close to each other, but Farida fails to understand Jude’s preferences, and their relationship eventually fails. Jude had been suffering from her mother’s divorce and wanted Farida to always be by her side. Even though Farida had been struggling with her work and personal life, Jude was still a child. In the fourth episode, Farida repeated the same irresponsible behavior with Jude, as Farida spent her entire time in the office and failed to pay attention to Jude’s assignments and school environment. Farida’s mother informed them that family is more important than school, and Jude was able to focus on her because Adib supported her with the schoolwork. Jude desperately needed a father figure in her life, and Adib had been trying his best to fulfill his duties as a grandfather. Despite everything, Farida decided to go to work without having a proper conversation with Jude. Back at the workplace, Munira and Farida were tasked with a new mission: to short-sell the National Cement Company since it was currently on the verge of bankruptcy. Their loss might create a huge profit for the bank, and it might bring more benefits for the team.

A Tremendous Win For The Ladies 

Farida had been excellent with her research, and she knew that the National Cement Company had acquired large capital and that their plans would certainly fail. They needed to find more measures to succeed in their plans. Farida had planned to keep these concerns away from Amir and Saud, but in the end, Munira coerced her into sharing the report. Soon, Farida realized that Munira had been trying to save her father since he was a board member of the Cement Company. This would massively affect her father’s position and cause financial problems for Munira’s family. Both the ladies started fighting over this issue again, as Farida knew that she couldn’t rely on Munira since she had been using Farida’s information to save her father. Well, their relationship had certainly progressed since their meeting at the auction; they quickly put the past behind them and started to visualize more in their interview with the popular reporter Mohamed Rashed. But Munira had other plans, and throughout the whole interview, she insulted Farida based on her looks, and Farida didn’t leave any chance to belittle her in the same manner. They had this chance to prove themselves to the world, but the duo wasted this opportunity as well.

Both the ladies failed to understand that they paved the way for other women and that their efforts and responses really mattered in the industry. Eventually, nothing worked out, but Mohamed Rashed was quite understanding and praised them for their work. Munira’s father was trying to secure a position for himself as the board president, and now Munira was entangled in a tough situation since she had to choose between her work and her family. Munira had no choice but to rely on Saud for the same, but Munira had to choose her work over her father’s. The next day, Munira and Farida were delighted to have their interview in the paper, but Farida noticed that Saud had made Mohamed Rashed publish an article on the failing stocks of the National Cement Company to divert Farida and Munira’s spotlight from the news. But Munira refused to believe her and continued to trust Saud. Now, Farida had to carry out the final stage, and she had one last chance to extract information from Khalifa. He handled the accounts of Bank Al-Kout. It was an easy take for Farida, as Khalifa had accidentally revealed that he would be selling the shares that belonged to the National Cement Company.

Meanwhile, Munira’s father was elected president. Things eventually worked out in the end, as Munira had been worried about her father’s position, but he is a powerful man, and just like Saud’s prediction, Munira’s father conquered his rightful place in the company. Munira and Saud certainly had a relationship with each other, and they managed to keep it a huge secret from the entire company. At the same time, things quickly went downhill for Farida because Jude had been secretly relying on Omar, and he often picked her up from school. Jude didn’t utter a single word about her father’s arrival at the school, and so Farida was freaking out. At some point, Farida had to understand that Jude was going through a tough phase in her life and that this was her only chance to ensure that her daughter led a happy and peaceful life. Farida was worried about Omar’s parenting tactics because he could easily manipulate Jude into hating Farida, and this might ruin their relationship. Even though Farida applied for the job for her daughter’s sake, in the end, she began to delve into her world of stocks and money, neglecting her daughter in the process.
