Definite 1. Pearl sacrificed everything and did literally everything for rose, rose then fell in love with someone else, breaking her promise, then rose died, and pearl lost her purpose. Pearl is so amazing, her backstory is so tragic, definitely one of the saddest backstories in cartoon history.

Watch "A Single Pale Rose" and "Now Were Only Falling Apart" and then you will see.
