Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) is an interesting one because he straight up told Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) that he thinks its time for him to leave 51. Granted, he said it after a particularly heated exchange with Severide, who belittled him, but it's clear that Cruz is looking at his career from a macro perspective.

He's a valuable firefighter, and if he could easily be a lieutenant if given the chance. If Severide decides to stay at 51, however, it creates a lack of openings, so Cruz would have to look into other firehouses if he wanted to continue to move up the chain of command.

Things are better between Cruz and Severide, but the former is still worth keeping an eye on.
