Nick lived in Pike Creek, Delaware, and was married to a woman named [[Sarah]]. Together, they had a son named Teddy. One night, Sarah and the baby were murdered by the demon [[Abraxas]] as they slept while Nick was out, drinking at the Elk's Lodge.<ref name="fourteen07">[[14.07 Unhuman Nature]]</ref> After their deaths the grief-stricken Nick still resided in the house, and kept some objects that were connected to Sarah and his son.<ref name="five01">[[5.01 Sympathy for the Devil]]</ref>
[[Lucifer]] chooses to use Nick as a so-called "Plan B" [[vessel]] when [[Sam]] refused to consent to him.<ref name="five01" /><ref name="five03">[[5.03 Free to Be You and Me]]</ref> However, because he isn't the "true" vessel, over time Nick’s body slowly became more and more degraded. The longer he continued to be occupied by Lucifer the more his body burned out, due to his [[meatsuit]]'s inability to contain Lucifer's essence. [[Castiel]] tells Sam that Nick would be drinking gallons of [[demon blood]] in order to continue to host Lucifer.<ref name="five21">[[5.21 Two Minutes to Midnight]]</ref> Nick is dispossessed when Lucifer gains consent from Sam, his body left behind in a an apartment in Detroit.<ref name="five22">[[5.22 Swan Song]]</ref>

When Nick survived Lucifer's death, Sam theorized it was because the archangel blade was designed to kill the possessing [[archangel]] while leaving the vessel unharmed. Nick takes up residence in a makeshift bedroom in the dungeon of [[the Bunker]] 's dungeon to recuperate from his ordeal.<ref name="fourteen01" /> His subsequent aggressiveness and Lucifer-like mannerisms when angered caused Castiel to believe that Lucifer did more damage to Nick's psyche than had been previously realized.<ref name="fourteen02">[[14.02 Gods and Monsters]]</ref>
After learning that nothing had been done in the decade since his wife and son's murders, Nick becomes determined to find the truth about happened to his family, going as far as becoming a budding [[serial killer]]. He targets people with special knowledge of the murders such as his former neighbor [[Arty Nielson]], a local priest, and [[Frank Kellogg]]. Nick also gets the urge to kill innocent people, developing quite a taste for the act. He eventually discovers that the demon [[Abraxas]], whom Lucifer knew personally, possessed Kellogg that night and used his [[meatsuit]] to kill Nick's family with a hammer.<ref name="fourteen02" /><ref name="fourteen07" />

===[[12.13 Family Feud]]===
A few years after Lucifer abandoned Nick's body as a vessel, [[Crowley]] revealed that he and his demons find him and found Nick's body following his dispossession. They have his body repaired and improved to act as a suitable permanent [[vessel]] for [[Lucifer]]. After Crowley corrupts [[Rowena]]'s [[spell]] to send Lucifer back to [[the Cage]], he is instead sent into Nick's unconscious body where Lucifer is restrained with chainsmade from the same material used to construct the Cage. Due to Crowley's improvements upon Nick's body, he shows no signs of degrading from the possession like he did previously or like Lucifer's other vessels aside from [[Castiel]] and [[President Jefferson Rooney]].
===[[12.15 Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell]]===
===[[12.23 All Along the Watchtower]]===
After inspecting the surveillance photos [[Sam]] had taken from [[Dr. Hess]] from the [[British Men of Letters]], Sam confirms to [[Dean]] and [[Mary]] that Lucifer is back and that he returned to , having recognized his old vessel.
===[[13.23 Let the Good Times Roll]]===
===[[14.17 Game Night]]===
:''"He loved you. You know that? He did. I felt it. He loved you so much and you broke his heart. Of course, I'm talking about the old you. The "you" with the soul. Yeah. Kermit the Prophet told me about your sitch. What's it like not having a soul? Must be relaxing."''
Nick makes his way to [[Donatello Redfield]]'s house and ties him to a table, where he injects him with an unknown substance. He has Donatello leave a voicemail with a [[bible]] reference in Dean's cellphone and waits at the house for the Winchesters' arrival. He tells Dean and Mary that he injected Donatello with thallium and he only has roughly 24 hours before he dies. After Nick shows them the live stream footage, Dean takes him back to the Bunker.
Sam is agitated to see Nick again, but he agrees to wait to kill him until after they save Donatello. After Dean beats him to a pulp, Nick says that he wants to talk with Jack. Upon entering the room, Nick taunts Jack about breaking Lucifer's heart and no longer having a soul. Jack angrily tells him that he has a soul, but Nick headbutts him, which brings Jack close to snapping. Out of fear, Nick agrees to show them where Donatello is.
After arriving at the warehouse, Dean heads inside with the antidote for thallium, while Sam waits in the car with Nick. Meanwhile, Jack examines the syringe Nick used on Donatello and senses that it was recently filled with angelic [[grace]]. While Mary calls Sam to explain what Jack found, Nick takes out a lock pick hidden beneath his skin. After Sam drags Nick out of the car, he explains that he injected Donatello with grace in order to contact Lucifer in [[the Empty]] and learn how to bring him back. Nick also explains that he was able to keep himself hidden and acquire the grace because of a group of demons who want Lucifer back as well. Nick removes his handcuffs and attacks Sam while the demons attack Dean in the warehouse. After a drawn-out fight, Nick strikes Sam's head repeatedly with a rock. Sam manages to honk the horn to alert Dean, but he starts succumbing to the head wound while Nick escapes.
[[File:CookedNick.png|thumb|right|350px|[[Jack]] cooks Nick from the inside out.]]
Nick steals a passing driver's truck and heads to a nearby abandoned cabin where he begins a ritual to bring Lucifer back using Jack's blood, which was smeared on his shirt when he headbutted him, mixed with his own blood. Nick burns the contents of the bowl in a salt ring and manages to summon Lucifer from the Empty. A fanatical Nick looks at the dead archangel in awe as he grants him permission to possess him again. However, casting the spell alerts Jack of Nick's location. Jack teleports himself and Mary to the cabin where he banishes Lucifer back to the Empty and closes the portal before he could possess Nick again. Jack, having had enough of Nick's tricks, uses his powers to break the bones in his hand to torture him. Jack slowly burns Nick from the inside out despite Mary's protests, prolonging his agony before he finally falls to the ground dead.
Jack then teleports to the warehouse to heal Sam and tell him, Dean, and Donatello that Nick is taken care of. Mary is visibly shaken by Jack's actions, but he says that Nick was a monster and that he deserved to die like that.
===[[14.18 Absence]]===
Looking for Jack, the Winchesters return to the cabin, where they find Nick's body and are horrified at what Jack did to him. Sam covers Nick's body with a blanket, but it is apparently otherwise left untouched at the cabin.
===[[15.13 Destiny's Child]]===
As [[Jack]]'s [[soul]] is restored, he remembers killing Nick amongst other things.
===[[15.19 Inherit the Earth]]===
When [[Lucifer]] is resurrected by [[God]], he returns in the form of Nick, although it appears that God gave Lucifer his own body in Nick's shape. Lucifer is subsequently killed by [[Michael]] with an [[archangel blade]] and blasts into ashes instead of leaving behind any form of remains as he did the first time including any blood on the blade.
* In [[14.12 Prophet and Loss]], its revealed that at least four different jurisdictions want to prosecute Nick for his crime spree. These presumably include Pike Creek, Delaware; Montauk, New York; and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Hibbing, Minnesota, may be another one, but Nick's crimes there only amounted to resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer. Another possibility is the location where Nick killed the demon that led him to Mary Winchester at the beginning of [[14.11 Damaged Goods]].
* In [[14.12 Prophet and Loss]], his full name can be seen on his hospital bracelet: Vaught, Nick. [[Nick Vaught]] is the name of a former PA and current writer's assistant and writer on ''Supernatural''. It has not been confirmed that this is Nick's real surname.
* In [[14.17 Game Night]], Nick states that he "carved up" and killed the cop from [[14.12 Prophet and Loss]]. However, he only brutally beat the man who was clearly still alive when Nick left him.
