    Meaning

    He stuttered several times, closed his mouth and opened it again, and again became geranium colored.

    Does the "and again" mean furthermore? Pls.

    No, it seems to mean that he had been geranium colored at least once before.

    I agree with Raymott, and thus because of the punctuation which is clearly separating the two parts of the sentences.

    If it was happening furthermore, "again and again" would be in the same part.
