In his grief, Strange goes to Kamar-Taj (an isolated community located in Tibet, in the Himalayas) and studies the Mystic Arts. There, he discovers the Eye of Agamotto, which can manipulate time, but his time travel plan is warned by the Ancient One and Wong because doing so could destroy the reality.

Two years after Palmer's death, Strange repeatedly uses the Eye of Agamotto to rewind the time, and he does everything possible, over and over again, to prevent Palmer's death, but no matter how Dr Strange arranges the situation, Christine still dies.

The Ancient One tells Strange that Palmer's death was an "Absolute Point" in the timeline and could not be undone. However, Strange refuses to listen to here and insists on finding a way to break the Absolute Point.

Against Strange's unshakable will, the Ancient One uses the power of the Dark Dimension to split the timeline into two: one branch where Strange summons and absorbs the powers of monsters to become the Strange Supreme; and the other branch is where the mainstream Strange accepts Palmer's death and continues to live a normal life.

As reality begins to show signs of being torn apart by the activities of Strange Supreme, The Ancient One asks the mainstream Strange, with Wong's amulet, to fight against the Strange Supreme and save the world.

However, resorting to a trap by impersonating Christine, Strange Supreme overpowers the mainstream Strange and absorbs him. Using his absorbing power, Strange Supreme revives Palmer, but at the same time tearing the reality apart.

Strange Supreme begs The Watcher for help, but Watcher refuses to intervene, and Palmer dies once more as the universe in which she exists dissolves. 

A whole universe just disappears because of a broken heart!
