Dante Torres (Benjamin Levy Aguilar) is still finding his footing on Chicago PD. He was brought in as a protege of Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), and has quickly proven himself to be a fearless and versatile member of the IU.

The character did run into some professional trouble in the episode “This Job”, though. He wound up on the wrong side of Det. Borkowski (Tom Lipinski), and was threatened was the termination of his job if he reported on any of the detective’s wrongdoing.

What’s next for Torres? Is his career with Chicago PD in jeopardy?

Borkowski rubbed Torres the wrong way from the start. He physically abused suspects in order to get evidence, and threw his badge around frivolously from the opening scene. Torres operates on a completely different level, and in between them both was Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), who is a decent man but is already aware of the high level of corruption that runs through the force.

Torres’s attempts to stay morally upright are squandered when Borkowski is able to bring in the home invasion suspects they spent the episode looking for. The rookie cop realizes that results are worthwhile, even if they are obtained through less-than-stellar means.

The end of the episode sees Torres and Ruzek discuss the fact that the former has become part of the “blue wall.” There’s a definite sense of defeat in Torres’s voice, and for a moment it seems as though the reason he wanted to become a cop has been lost.

Ruzek manages to instill him with confidence, however, and tells him that sometimes unpleasant interactions are necessary to getting the bad guy. Chicago PD has increasingly put more time into developing Torres as a character, so the chances of him packing up and leaving are slim.

It’s clear the writers want to set him up as the heir to Halstead, especially when it comes to morals, so we’re confident that the character will be able to swallow the defeat he took in “This Job” and pay it off down the line, when Borkowski inevitably crosses the line.
