She is shown briefly during her daughter's Confirmation celebration when the Bishop of the Church is congratulating Rose. Celeste stands near them, admiring her daughter and talking with the Bishop.
When an uninvited Sergeant James Doakes greets Rose and begins to question her on the murders of Ricky Simmons and Kara Simmons, her father, rushes over to warn Doakes to step away from her. After a tense confrontation, Doakes announces to everyone present that Carlos murdered a cop and his wife. This confuses Rose as she knows nothing of her father's criminal activities. Carlos orders Celeste to take Rose away, and she immediately does to shield her daughter from the unpleasantness.
Later, Carlos attempts to kill Doakes, but he is unsuccessful. It is unknown what happens to Celeste following her husband's arrest.
