Default Bottling, interrupted- big problem?

So I get through 4 of my 5 gallons of Weizenbock, all nice and bottled, and then (!) I realize I hadn't salvaged as many bottles of the previous brew as I thought I had done... so I basically slapped the lid on tight to the bottling bucket.

I did this late last night (midnight/1-ish), and plan to bottle the last gallon at around 3:30 this afternoon. Will it be okay, now that the priming sugar is in there, or do I ditch my last mouth-watering gallon?

you should be fine, although I would try to get that last gallon bottled before the priming sugar gets fermented out! Otherwise it will never carbonate in the bottles!

IT shouldn't be an issue, you might want to add a touch more sugar to make sure it carbonates fully.
