I've come to the conclusion that season 3 should be referred to the year that they all saw RED. To me the writers used this as their general theming for many of the characters. Rick was first to see Red when he learned Lori died and Carl finished her off leading him to go off the rocker; TG saw Red when Michonne broke in killing Zombie Penny and destroying his trophy heads; Morgan saw Red when he realized his son was bitten by his Zombie wife and thereby went bonkers; Daryl saw Red when he realized Merle had been turned into a Zombie and had to kill him; and finally TG made it to the color Burgundy as the Woodbury Army ran from him realizing it was stupid to take the prison thereby causing TG to reach his true psychotic innerself. I think that both Maggie and Glenn probably bordered on the color Pink because of what happened to them. The writers then left us with the thought that Michonne is seeing Red because of Andrea's death and Carl is headed in the same direction. I get that they want us all to know that these characters have taken all they could and reached their breaking point but in a way I'm a bit over everyone seeing RED. Do you feel that maybe some new colors should be added into the fold other than RED for season 4? We all know that Rick/TG will eventually go back at it but maybe we could have a few shows in between where no one is seeing Red.
