He informs her of the vineyard issue and then Jezebel tells him to not worry about it, because she will find a way to obtain it for him. The next morning, she sends a royal letter that decrees the townspeople to give false testimony against Naboth, and to stone him to death. Naboth is taken, judged, and stoned until he is left dead on the floor. After this, Elijah is called by God to confront Ahab and Jezebel, which he does, and warns them about their future deceases.

Production Edit

The brickfilm used sets that were used in other films, the "Jezreel City Gate" set was from Lego Joan of Arc, the "Palace Quarter" set was from Valente Q. Castro's The Ten Commandments, and the Samaria background was from Lego Jezebel. Some costumes were also borrowed, such as Jezebel's clothing was actually Nefretiri's dress in Valente Q. Castro's The Ten Commandments, as well as Ahab's royal wardrobe was indeed Sethi's Pharaoh apparel. These props were borrowed from these films, which are not yet released.
