Use option #1.
A second powerlink won't hurt a thing. The first one didn't, did it?
Reusing pins on the other hand is asking for trouble. Modern chain pins are peened to hold the outer plate. Pressing them removes the peening, which is why powerlinks and Shimano's special pins must be used.
If you're really in doubt, replace the chain. I would gladly pay $20 to not rack my jewels on the top tube, gash my leg on the chainring, deal with roadrash, etc...
