Sometime after losing his worshipers, Vili left the fingerbone of the frost giant Ymir in a safety deposit box in a bank in Chicago, box number one to be exact. In the modern day, he returned to collect it, as Plutus' auction was coming up. He then killed the bank clerk who was helping him and took 5/8 of her body with him.
At the auction, he bid the finger for the hammer of Thor. It was implied it was in his possession at some point in the past. Plutus didn't accept the finger; however he added 5/8 of a virgin as well (the bank clerk he killed) and Plutus accepts.
At the end he took the hammer, but was caught in the crossfire between the Winchesters, Crowley, and Beau, who had switched sides and joined Crowley. To defeat the god, he gave Sam Winchester the hammer. Sam killed Beau with it, and Vili asked for it back, however Sam questioned him on where he got the 5/8 of a virgin from.
Vili sheepishly shrugged, admitting he committed murder, so Sam used the hammer to kill him. Only his clothes remained.
