** Bob instead [[MurderTheHypotenuse kills Charlie]] for trying to "steal" her away from him.
** Alice tells Bob that she likes Bob as a friend, but doesn't love him. Bob [[OmnicidalManiac decides to kill everyone]] except Alice with the intent of kicking off an AdamAndEvePlot.



** Bob winds up shooting himself instead, and Alice [[DiedInYourArmsTonight rushes over and holds him as he dies]]. While she's caught off guard, however, he shoots ''her'' so that they can be TogetherInDeath.

* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob is a StalkerWithACrush who borders on {{Yandere}}. At first, Alice appears to be [[{{Squick}}ed out by this behavior, but then turns out to be a NightmareFetishist who finds it endearing. Except that she [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt doesn't take his threats seriously]]. After a drunken one-night stand with Charlie, she wakes up to find Bob standing over them with a [[KnifeNut butcher's knife]] and a SlasherSmile. Turns out he's understanding enough to let Alice live because she was drunk and wouldn't have cheated on him were she sober... [[InsaneTrollLogic but then]] [[LoveMakesYouCrazy he]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown goes berserk]] on Charlie for "tempting/corrupting her". This firsthand evidence of Bob's psychosis disturbs Alice so deeply that she rejects him out of sheer terror, this time sending him [[UnstoppableRage completely over the edge]]...
