In Turn Coat, Billy and Georgia take in Harry Dresden when he's in trouble. They double-team the Naagloshii when he attacked two of the Alphas.[2] Later, Georgia sits vigil at the hospital taking turns with Billy in the room with Andi Macklin. Will makes sure she is comfortable and warm before he talks to Dresden.[6] On Demonreach, Billy and Georgia double-team Madeline Raith, saving Dresden from having his life force sucked out of him. Unfortunately, both of them ended up succumbing to the toxins in Madeline's blood, and therefore they were taken out of the fight for the remainder of the battle on Demonreach. Dresden had a guard of Wee Folk from the Za-Lord's Guard stand watch on them. They were okay once it wore off.[12] At the end, Dresden brings Waldo Butters to play their role-playing games, filling in for Kirby who was killed by the Shagnasty, the Skinwalker.
