The Road of Trials is where the old self begins to dissolve away ("I think we're going to die here").
Death symbolism reinforces this (the man shot in the street).
Road symbolism demonstrates physical movement from one place and state to another (Tony making his way through Tehran).
Trials lead to the acquisition of magical gifts (Tony acquiring visas, permission from the ministry of culture etc).
There is no remaining as is or going back (the Canadian Embassy is being closed down - there is nowhere for the six to stay anymore).
The New Self begins to materialize (the six have to learn their new identity).
The hero / archetypes begin to learn who they are (Tony reveals his real name to earn Joe Stafford's trust and to get him to play along).
