I have a hive that still has two deeps and a medium. No doubt they can fit in one deep. I was hoping they would explode and fill out at least the second deep but our weather has been wet and cool. Should I just go ahead and make them a single deep and then add back as they need space?

Make sure there are no brood in the hive bodies you remove. That being said, yes remove any unused hive bodies. Bees seem to do better in smaller spaces. However, watch them closely, when they need more space as spring comes on add it quickly as they'll swarm quickly otherwise.
