Default Adding water after pitching yeast

Hey I made a 5g recipe and for some reason missed about 2quarts of water. Pitched the yeast then realized it. Can I gently introduce some water to it it's 3hrs after. I am assuming the beer will be super concentrated. Hat should I look forward to getting if I use the 4.8gallons besides less beer?

Just a thought, could I make a larger priming solution and make up a bit of the missing water when it's prime time?

You could, but why not just top it up now and be done with it, so you're not watering down the beer at the end?

It won't harm the beer now if I too it off. The yeast is pitched

No, it won't harm the beer at all. It's after fermentation that oxygenation is a problem for the beer. At this point, it's great.
