Rookie officer Dante Torres’ (Benjamin Levy Aguilar) neighbors might not respect the badge, however his actions on the finish of the most recent Chicago P.D. episode ought to imply he and his mom don’t have to fret about shifting instantly… hopefully.
Throughout Intelligence’s investigation into the homicide of a lady Torres thought of to be like a second mom, he crossed paths with a avenue seller — who was then ready for him when he bought dwelling after the case was wrapped. He warned Torres it was time to maneuver, however the officer as an alternative took off his jacket, badge, and gun and punched the seller, repeatedly. Then, he walked away.
Aguilar breaks down that ending and teases what’s subsequent for Torres.
I used to be considering that Torres and his mother had been going to have to maneuver, however then Torres reacted like he did. So is it secure for them to remain there, a minimum of for now?
Benjamin Levy Aguilar: I don’t suppose it’s secure essentially. There’s positively danger, however there’s additionally a respect that individuals need to him, particularly now in a approach. Somebody that may rise up like that to that sort of world deserves some respect. There’s positively additionally a danger as a result of there might be repercussions, and I’m certain that that may be a feeling that Torres has. So I believe he’s gonna be further alert, possibly extra paranoid, however on the identical time, there’s one thing that bought sparked in him at that second that may in a approach blind him. In a approach, it was type of blind rage combined with blind religion and combined with braveness and combined with so many various issues that make him a really harmful individual.
Talking of repercussions, is that one thing that’s gonna come up at work? Is somebody in Intelligence gonna discover out what occurred?
I hope that — I don’t know. The reality is, I don’t know the way he’s gonna deal with it or in the event that they’re gonna discover out and in the event that they do, how he’s gonna deal with it.
Torres and Mia left issues in a extremely tough place. He instructed her he’d defend her brother, however now her brother is in jail for 20 years.
Yeah, I do know, and it’s so loopy how the system works and what’s honest and what isn’t honest, however on the finish of the day, he was part of that homicide. And I believe that from what I felt in that second, there was a metamorphosis and a change of priorities in him saying like, “I can’t ever please everybody and I’m not making an attempt to please everybody. I’m making an attempt to do the appropriate factor.” However it harm him as a result of it was somebody he loves a lot. So I believe we’re gonna need to see the way it unfolds as a result of there’s additionally a second of his that was type of like, “That hurts me a lot clearly, however you’ll by no means perceive what I’m making an attempt to do and that what I’m making an attempt to do is bigger than you or me.” I believe he’s gonna need to stroll that path alone.
What’s subsequent for Torres after this episode? Is it principally simply him studying the ropes of Intelligence, or are we gonna see extra of his private life?
For now, from what I do know, there’s been moments of studying the ropes of Intelligence and likewise contributing in instances and stuff. I can’t wait to learn one other Torres-focused episode and see the place they take it. However based mostly on what I’ve seen in Season 9 Episode 18 and Season 10 Episode 4, I’ve a superb feeling that it’s gonna be actually deep and thrilling.
