Does Torres Have a New Love Interest on Chicago P.D.?

We learned even more about the rookie in Season 10, Episode 4's "Dónde Vives." 

Welcome Chicago Med's Hannah Asher and Chicago P.D.'s Dante Torres | NBC's One Chicago

After Halstead resigned from the Intelligence Unit and left Chicago P.D., the team tried their best to adjust to his absence in Season 10, Episode 4's "Dónde Vives." And part of that meant ushering in their newest full-time team member, Dante Torres ( Benjamin Levy Aguilar ).

The entire October 12th episode revolved around Torres as he led a murder investigation in his childhood neighborhood. We learned even more about the rookie cop, including the fact that he frequently helps his neighbors (who don't trust the police) while he's off the clock. But we also got a small glimpse into his love life, and who can resist a little romance? Below, everything we learned about Torres and the girl next door.

Who is Torres' friend, Mia, on Chicago P.D.?

Fans meet Mia (Sharlene Cruz) during Season 10, Episode 4. She's a childhood friend-turned love interest for Torres, but she becomes embroiled in the Intelligence Unit's latest case when her brother, Kiko, is suspected of murder. Torres and the rest of the team suspect that Kiko was involved in the killing of Torres' neighbor, Provi.

Torres and Mia clearly have a connection, and he uses that to his advantage and tries to get information about her brother—who's on the run—while they're on a date. But it all goes wrong when Mia ends up beaten by a gang member and discovers that Torres was using her for his investigation. Even though she feels betrayed, she eventually gives up information about Kiko when Torres promises he'll do his best to keep him safe.

Will Mia and Torres end up together?

While it's clear to fans that Mia and Torres have chemistry after just one episode, right now a relationship between the two seems highly unlikely. Though Torres was able to arrest and get information out of Kiko without incident, Kiko still ends up sentenced to 20 years in prison for felony murder.  Mia was unimpressed, to say the least, leaving Torres to feel helpless—and characteristically silent. "Dónde Vives" showed that the rookie will have a difficult time balancing being a good cop while also protecting his community. Or as Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) put it, "It ain't easy working a case in your hood. I've been there, it can shake you up."

"Twenty years for not even pulling the trigger? That's your help?" Mia said to Torres. "Nothing to say, you're not even gonna tell me I'm wrong? You're just gonna stay silent?"

With those parting words, it's hard to see a future for the two. But it is Chicago P.D., and there's always room for the unexpected.

Watch Chicago P.D. on NBC Wednesdays at 10/9c and the next day on Peacock.
