The vaguely hinted at other things are in fact called “The Others” in the book, but on the TV show they haven’t used that term—perhaps because of The Others on LOST.

Ser Waymar Royce is taunting Gared here, because a black brother of the Night’s Watch is not supposed to fear the dark, he’s supposed to defend others from it.

Although the night is dark and full of terrors.

Ser Waymar will soon become one of those terrors.

Metallica fans get crazy and devote themselves so deeply to the band that they become obsessed.
And they are the battery which can not be killed.

In a song ostensibly about their fans, this is a literal chorus describing what Metallica fans do at concerts.

They smash the boundaries, meaning the barriers installed by security.
They act like crazed lunatics, which finds the band members.
And they are the battery… which can not be stopped.

"The first time he had been sent beyond, all the old stori..." (George R. R. Martin – A Game of Thrones (Prologue)) | pending

The first of many mentions of a person’s bowels

"SMU Mustangs" (NCAA Basketball Men Div I – 2014 Tournament Snubs) | pending

Coached by legendary basketball vagabond Larry Brown, who made the media rounds before their conference tourney, expecting to be invited to the dance.

Ironically, Puffy chose to screw some of the rappers on this very track.

"He was going down we figured / But this wasn't no ordinar..." (Geto Boys – Mind Playing Tricks on Me) | accepted

although 6 or 7 feet is a wide range, from average height to an NBA center.

"Prince Akeem, they throw flowers at my feet, nigga" (Drake – Tuscan Leather) | accepted

Also prince Akeem could refer to Hakeem Olajuwon, in light of the previous line being about Dwight Howard.

Howard has potential to reach heights, but Olajuwon, who changed the spelling of his name from Akeem to Hakeem once he was in the NBA, reached heights that Dwight almost certainly never will. 2-time champ and Finals MVP, one of the top 5 centers in history despite really being a 6'10" SF in disguise, a winner with the heart of a champion. He’s actually coaching Dwight, and still Howard will never be as great as he.

(Unless LeBron suddenly retires to make way for him, like Jordan retired the first time to make way for Olajuwon).

"Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not spe..." (Martin Niemöller – First they came...) | pending

Lots of politicians in America today are doing this. We should remember that they have something in common with Hitler.

"He didn't notice that the lights had changed" (The Beatles – A Day In The Life) | accepted

the light changed after he died, but he couldn’t do anything about it cause he was dead. Gallows humor from Lennon.

"This is gonna sound arrogant, but my presence is charity" (Jay Z – Thoughts on Trayvon Martin, President Obama, Race) | pending

It doesn’t sound arrogant, it’s more like the most arrogant thing you could ever say.

""GOD"" (Aaron Hernandez – Letter From Jail) | accepted

Is this a reference to his former pro and college teammate Tim Tebow?

"Especially when that apology is really only for the sake ..." (J. Cole – Autism Speaks Apology Letter) | pending

Rick Ross’s too.
