Buy a new timer, and possibly a contactor.
Otherwise, as Poet says, stick to the usual schedule.

For the least stress to them i would think you best off not turning your light back on for 12hrs to give them the correct dark period.
Then in the coming days revert to 7pm-7am by using extra dark peroids?

If it is a one off and not something that has gone on for a while, the plant will probably "think" it is just a bright full moon. Like when lights dont turn on, they "think" its a cloudy day.
Hermies tend to happen when lights pop on for a while in the middle of the dark period, then go out again.
As suggested, keep your usual settings and your fingers crossed.
A contactor would be a good idea too!
