The blue and red light change on Anakin’s mask reflects his conflict between the light and dark side of the force.

After Obi-Wan defeats Vader in the last episode by cutting his mask and breathing equipment, the two characters have a heart-to-heart. During the discussion, you can see the lightsaber colors change in intensity on the two characters’ faces.

It begins with Vader’s face completely enveloped in red and Obi-Wan’s in blue. 

“You didn’t kill Anakin Skywalker. I did,” Vader then says as blue lighting starts to overtake the red. This could symbolize how Vader is committing an act of good by removing Obi-Wan’s guilt for turning Anakin into who he is.

Vader then adds as his face goes darkly red again: “The same way, I will destroy you.”

The lighting emphasizes that there is still some good in Vader as shown by his turn in “Star Wars: Episode VI — Return of the Jedi” (1983). But for now, his hatred still runs too deep for him to abandon the dark side.
