In the posted scene, we see Ellie conversing with David shortly after they met. In keeping with the friendly demeanor he initially mimics, he is highlighted in the color blue, as is Ellie – signifying that the two are allies.
But then the conversation takes a turn that suddenly makes Ellie suspicious and lets you understand that the person you are dealing with does not have good intentions. After a camera pan to one of David’s men who is glowing red, David himself has also turned red, which identifies him as an enemy. So, thanks to the accessibility option, we can follow exactly how Ellie recognizes her main antagonist as an adversary.
