Carmen is later introduced as an assistant principal. She is served as a substitute teacher for Walt's chemistry class and informs them they are going to watch a video regarding carbon. ("...and the Bag's in the River")

Carmen entered Walt's class to inform him that his brother-in-law, Hank Schrader is visiting him. After she leaves, Hank comments on her buttocks to Walt that it's comparable to an onion. ("Crazy Handful of Nothin'")

After the Wayfarer Flight 515 disaster, Carmen calls a school assembly for students to discuss their feelings. Walt fidgets while students discuss the devastation, at one point grumbling "Jesus H. Christ." Hearing this, Carmen encourages Walt to express himself. ("No Más")

A short time later, Carmen calls Walt into her office to discuss his erratic behavior. "I can't begin to understand what you're going through," she says, but then reminds him of their responsibilities as educators. Moments later, Walt awkwardly tries to kiss her. Carmen backs away. "What's wrong with you?" she shouts. Later that day, Carmen places Walt on indefinite leave. ("Green Light")
