Discord Theory

After watching the newest episode I have a slight theory as to where this season is going.

It seemed to stick out to me that Discord was putting a lot of emphasis on disrupting Twilight and Cadence, both when he was talking to Rarity and Applejack and during the duration of the episode.

Combined with “Princess Twilight Sparkle” I’m wondering if his plan is to actually disrupt Twilight and the monarchy in Equestria, slowly weakening the bonds until it’s ripe for the taking?

Of course this means that he’d probably be the end villain for the season, the real question will be if Discord is defeated by what’s in the box or if his friendship with Fluttershy (which seems less fake at least) eventually really does reform him.
