In Ghost Story, Childs was sent to ask Karrin Murphy if she trusted the Ragged Lady. Murphy negotiates for Northerly Island by Burnham Harbor for her answer. Murphy said she doesn't drop her guard around her but warns Childs that she considers the Ragged Lady to be one of hers and should anything happen to her that it means war: "we segue directly into OK Corral".[1] Later at the meeting, Murphy told everyone present that she held his proxy, Felicia wasn't pleased.[2]
