Book 2: Earth
Ozai didn't officially appear during this arc, but he was described as being severally ill from Azula when Zuko came back for her assistance.
Book 3: Fire
His official appearance is when he called upon a meeting in the Boiling rock prison. He didn't say anything, much of what needed to be said from his loyal messenger and metaphorical Niece, Mai. During the meeting, exposed Toph and he zaps her in the eyes. After that he was about to leave when Bat exposes Aang as well. But oddly he didn't do anything.
Ozai appears later explaining the plan to his soldiers. When he was found by Hougen, he refuses to fight, saying it wouldn't make a difference when the eclipse occurs. While he waited in his palace for the Avatar, he never got the chance to see him face to face because Hougen assassinates him before Aang arrives.
