Can we say Nick is dead? it was shown that with Raphael's vessel, and archangel will leave their host brain-dead, and Michael confirms that unlike his brothers, he (Michael) will not do this to Dean when he is finished possessing him, which contradicts Castiel's earlier claim. Anyway, when Lucifer dispossesses Nick, he simply falls to the ground, not moving, but it is not clear that he is dead.
Another alternative possibility: Nick died when Dean shot Lucifer with the Colt, and Lucifer simply decided not to resurrect him, but continued living in his body. This would make his seemingly dead body make sense. Of course, it is always possible that he simply died from the shear strain of being possessed.
I agree with your alternate possibility to be quite honest. As the colt has been shown to kill anything (except the big 5) it is quite possible that it left Nick dead, but Lucifer simply continued to inhabit his body. He has done this before (inhabiting the body of that dead nun) But unfortunately this is pure fan speculation and until the writers say something concrete (Which they probably wont) I don't believe we can write anything on the wiki about it. 126.96.36.199 23:15, July 20, 2013 (UTC)
Seem unlikely. After all, Lucifer is still an angel, and angels can't possess corpses. Being that Lucifer is immune to the Colt, it probably functioned like a regular gun, and he was able to fix the damage done to the vessel. Nick probably died when the devil left, or died soon after. The nun, was part of a ritual, so I'm not sure if it's the same as possession.Dragonvalejunkie (talk) 23:56, January 27, 2014 (UTC)
After switching to Sam as a vessel, Nick was motionlessly sprawled out on the floor. Angels can't possess corpses but, after assent, they can remain in lifeless vessels. -- ImperiexSeed, 7:12 PM, January 27th 2014
Okay, I think it is very safe to say Nick is dead. There is no evidence to say otherwise. Very likely (in my opinion) Nick died when Dean shot Lucifer using the Colt. Anyway, I'm here to talk about his 'status' as a recurring character. Nick is not recurring. He appeared in only one episode, unlike Jimmy Novak, who appeared in two episodes. I think, because of this, Nick needs to be added into a different category. Do you all agree? Kajune (talk) 20:26, July 4, 2016 (UTC)
Relation to Sam Edit
Hey guys, I've heard that Nick was confirmed to be a distant cousin to Sam through the Campbells. I can't find the original source, but a few people have been saying it. This statement was said to be made by Eric Kripke himself. What do you think? Kajune (talk) 06:47, July 5, 2016 (UTC)
I think it's easy to say something was confirmed by a writer/producer, and a lot harder to prove it. Without a source, assume that to be fan fiction someone wanted to validate by claiming it was said by a writer/producer.
I am tired of the repeated renaming without a linked source for the last name which has been repeatedly asked for. As a result, this page has been renamed and reverted way too many times lately because of a failure to comply. So for now at least, this page is locked. If anyone can give me a legitimate source or has a legitimate edit to propose I will allow it but until then, this will remain as it is now.--WarGrowlmon18 (talk) 21:30, June 12, 2018 (UTC)
You should also delete the redirect that was created from the repeated renamings.
