Somebody was in a rush

I work offshore (14/14) so my wife is in control of my plants while I'm gone.
Seems she is in a bigger hurry to get them out of the house than I am and took it upon herself to start hardening them off.
 As you can see, a couple didn't take to her time frame of the sun. 
Should I take a few leaves off? anything else that might help them pull through this?
I'm still offshore for a few more days, but these are the pics she sent me.
Thanks for any advise.

Some of those look like they ran out of water and haven't been rehydrated yet.  I'd start with water and see what they look like tomorrow morning. Likely many of the leaves that you'll want to come off will do that on their own.  Just plain water rather than with nutes.  And of course they should stay out from under grow lights in the meantime.

Good luck BR!  Fortunately your plants aren't too young and look previously well cared for so I would expect your damage won't be nearly as bad as it looks right now.

Seems the smaller plants took to it a lot better than the larger ones, maybe it was her placement.
Want be long here in South Louisiana.

That make sense when you mention it.  Those solo cups don't hold a lot of water and can go dry in the heat pretty quickly,  The bigger plants might simply have used all their water more quickly and that might have caused the damage. Tough not being there to deal with it yourself I'm sure.
