When last we saw that dear, sweet Ivy Dickens (nottt!), she was busy reapin’ the benefits of her time spent with the ailing CeCe Rhodes – to the tune of receiving most of CeCe’s property and cash! In the final moments of Season 5, Episode 17, “The Princess Dowry,” Ives even had the gall to kick Lily and Rufus to the curb after getting their apartment in the settlement! But, we all know those van der Woodsen / Rhodes / Humphreys don’t go down without a fight.

When Gossip Girl returns with Season 5, Episode 18, “Con-Heir,” on April 2, it’s anyone’s guess what variety of wrath Lily and her crew will unleash in response to Ivy’s recent good fortune, but we’ve got a fewww hints via a new tease from E! Online.

E! says the bitter battle between these two opposing forces is only beginning, and that the “contentious” disagreement will “continue gaining force through the end of the season.” What’s more, it’s likely to be pulling “almost all the characters into its orbit.” (Including, it would seem, more screen time for Papa vdW?)

Oh dear!

Was our speculation on the vdWs going public with their inheritance trouble right on the money? (pun!) When will real-Charlie wise up and cash in on her family’s fortune? And, uhhh, why doesn’t Ivy just take the money and run?

Oh, mid-season hiatuses, how we loathe thee!
