How Long Will Thawed Scallops Last in the Fridge?

Hi Chowhounds! It's been awhile, but I knew I could count on all of you for my question. I usually scoff at these food safety threads, but I'm really not sure on this one. Here's my situation. I have a bag of packaged scallops that came frozen from Wegmans. I did a quick defrost in a bowl of cold water Wednesday evening, and in the middle of preparing dinner, I lost power. I immediately put them in the fridge and power was probably out for 2 hours, but I ended up going out to dinner that night and didn't cook them. With the holiday weekend and everything, I haven't had a chance to cook them either until this evening. Will they still be ok? I haven't opened the bag to smell them, so of course if they smell funky I will definitely toss, but is there any possibility that they're fine to cook and eat now?
