I would just take it out and refrigerate it until time to start cooking. I would not soak it in plain water. Leave it uncovered in the fridge so the skin dries out a bit to allow it to get brown and crispier in the oven. That's what I would do, anyway.

Yes, that is too long. See the recent Hotline thread on this same question.
