Nikolai was a psychic and spoon bender in Lily Dale, New York.
When Sam and Dean stop at a restaurant in Lily Dale, a woman stops at their table and recognizes them as the brothers who went on a murder spree a few weeks back. Sam and Dean assure her they are not murderers, calming her. This prompts Nikolai to come and apology to Sam and Dean for his friend, telling them as a Russian he can easily spot the law and he knows they are there to investigate the recent deaths. Nikolai introduces himself to Sam and Dean, offering his services to help in any way as he is "highly intuitive." When Sam questions if he is Nikolai Lishin the spoon bender, Nikolai picks up Sam’s spoon, makes a hand motion over the spoon and grunts having bent the spoon. He invites Sam and Dean to his demonstration at the festival, offering to teach them how to harness the power of their minds, before he and his lady friend walk to their table.
Later at his home, Nikolai is sitting on the couch with a beer and he empties a bag of silverware onto the coffee table. He holds out his fingers and waves them, then picks up a fork, rubs it and forcibly bends it with his hands. It unbends, which concerns him. The lights begin to flicker, the electricity crackles, and voices can be heard murmuring. As Nikolai looks down at the coffee table, to his alarm all of the silverware is standing straight up. He stands up and takes a few steps away from the table. When he exhales, his breath is visible. He is lifted off the ground by an invisible force and hovers above the coffee table, before dropping down onto it, impaling himself with his silverware.
