    The idea of "fixed points" in time is a horrible concept, and the only point of it is to enforce plot induced stupidity. Plus, how is her death a fixed point when she was living originally?

Isn't the whole point of What If to say what if something got changed? So how can anything like a person's death be unchangeable? Especially since Christine's death is the one thing that changed from the MCU? How can he not change it back being like it was in the MCU? Because then it wouldn't be a What If, I guess.

EDIT
I mean I guess maybe there's a larger point. Like all of the "What Ifs" are simulations being run by the Watcher. In each sim he changes one aspect from the true MCU. So in this sim the thing he changed was that Christine died. So within this sim, it's the one thing that can't be changed or it will negate the entire purpose of the sim. That would make sense.
