Two people plan to die together. This can be part of a Gambit, a romantic plan to be Together in Death or part of the Bury Your Gays plot. Compare Tag Team Suicide in which one half of the pair kills themself first and the other dies after with no coordination between the two.

    ((CSI NY}} had one of these in 'Blood,Sweat and Tears', only it was not fully played straight. The pair were kids from feuding circus families, and the boy went through with the pact, but the girl couldn't bring herself to do it. The body was dumped by someone else to get rid of it.

    Looks to me like this is Suicide Pact. The above examples can be merged.
