Ben and Ciara are eagerly anticipating their New Orleans honeymoon but they might not be ready for what they’re about to discover. As seen in the clip below from Beyond Salem, premiering Monday, September 6 on the Peacock streaming service, the newlyweds get way more than they bargained for.

Before their big run-in, Princess Gina is on Ciara’s mind as she frantically tries to call her mother regarding her alter ego.

As for what else to expect in Beyond Salem, Chad visits Will and Sonny in Phoenix, while Paulina, Abe, Eli and Lani find adventure in Miami. In another part of the world, John and Marlena go to Zurich on a case, which just so happens to be Tony and Anna’s destination to help heal Carrie’s marriage. Plus, Kristen, Leo and Shane return, as does Billie — but you already know that from the video above.
