Nick: If I help you... can you bring back my family?

Lucifer: I'm sorry. I can't. But I can give you the next best thing. God did this to you, Nick. And I can give you justice. Peace.
Nick: How do I know you're telling the truth?
Lucifer: Because, contrary to popular belief, I don't lie. I don't need to. What I need... is you. Nick, I need you to say yes.

Nick: Then yes.

– Nick consenting to Lucifer, 5.01 Sympathy for the Devil


Nick is a solemn widower living in Delaware. He was married to a woman named Sarah, and together they had a child. One night a criminal crept into their house and murdered Sarah and the baby. After the home invasion, Nick still resides in the house, and has kept some objects that were connected to Sarah and the baby. Nick is used as a "Plan B" vessel for Lucifer. However, because he isn't the "true" vessel, over time Nick’s body slowly becomes more and more degraded. The longer he continues to be occupied by Lucifer the more his body suffers, due to the inability of Nick's body to handle Lucifer's essence. Castiel tells Sam that Nick would be drinking gallons of demon blood in order to be able to host Lucifer.[1] Nick is dispossessed in 5.22 Swan Song, at which point his body falls to the ground. His current condition is unknown; he is likely deceased.


Lucifer takes the form of Nick's deceased wife, to convince him into becoming his vessel.

5.01 Sympathy for the Devil

Nick's wife and child have been murdered during a home invasion. As he grieves, he starts hallucinating. Lucifer appears as his wife Sarah and tells him that he is a vessel, and that Lucifer wants his consent to possess him. Lucifer says he is misunderstood, that he was punished for "loving God too much." He says that he will help Nick get justice for his family. Nick assents to possession.

5.03 Free to Be You and Me

Very soon after assenting to possession, Nick's body is already seen to be decomposing when Lucifer appear to Sam.

5.10 Abandon All Hope...

Further stress on Nick is seen, and when Castiel mentions the sores appearing on his vessel's face, Lucifer admits that "Nick is wearing a bit thin."

5.13 The Song Remains The Same

When Anna Milton reveals her intention to kill Sam to stop Lucifer, Castiel states that Sam is not Lucifer's only vessel, but Anna states that Nick is falling apart as she and Castiel speak, and Sam is the only potential vessel that matters.

5.19 Hammer of the Gods

Nick is falling apart under the effort to contain Lucifer.

5.21 Two Minutes to Midnight

Castiel tells Sam and Bobby that Lucifer would be drinking gallons of demon blood in order to maintain the integrity of his vessel, Nick.[1]

5.22 Swan Song

Dean and Sam meet up with Lucifer at an abandoned apartment. Nick's body looks even more run-down and degraded than it did in 5.19 Hammer of the Gods. Sam agrees to be Lucifer's vessel. Nick's body is seen motionless on the ground after the dispossession, presumably dead.
