Once the runner from 1st was ruled out via a force play at 2nd (3rd out) the inning ended. All further activity is ignored as nothing further can happen by rule.

If, the call at 2nd is overturned via replay, there are only two options to be considered with regards to the lead runner......... He is either returned to third base or he is awarded home. Those two decisions are the responsibility of the replay official.

There is no "extra out" to consider.
