All good things must come to an end, and while Malcolm continually putting Steve against other band members led to the end of the Sex Pistols, Johnny Rotten knew they wouldn’t last forever. They were a band for the moment, high energy, chaos, and while it could have maybe sustained for a bit longer, all of Malcolm’s changes impeded that. By getting rid of nearly every original member, who were a bit more stable than their replacements, he shortened the life span of the Sex Pistols.

Sid and Nancy taking a picture

The final straw came in the form of Steve choosing Malcolm over Johnny, and with Sid becoming the lead, that was the beginning of the end. Sid, fully addicted to heroin and Nancy, couldn’t handle the fame, the pressure, and it broke him. Of course, Malcolm didn’t help much. He liked to use the band to fund his projects, ideas, and fame. Which, after Sid died, was a major crux between him and Steve.

But we’re jumping ahead. The show leaves things ambiguous regarding Nancy, Sid, and the day Nancy died. Yes, there was a fight and drug use, but we don’t see Sid stab Nancy or Nancy kill herself. All we see is Sid get arrested, and next thing we know, he has overdosed, and Chrissie, right before she goes on stage with The Pretenders, learns she lost one of her mates.

Which leaves us with Steve calling it quits with Malcolm, Johnny Rotten reminding him he saw through Malcolm all along, and Johnny reminding Steve that heroin already killed one Sex Pistol, don’t make it two.
