If Silva could've brought himself or sent hitmen to M's townhouse, he could've also killed M there and then when he blew up the top floor of MI6 - he seemed to be slowly and sadistically playing with M before killing her (like Dr. Evil).
Which he was already doing before his capture...

His escape from MI6 custody to get at M at the courthouse seemed to be emergency plan B and him storming Skyfall in a helicopter was emergency plan C (he succeeded but unfortunately for him got killed as well).
BUT, according to the movie his capture was a part of his plan. IT was Plan A. Q even says, he must've been planning this for years.

Plan B was Skyfall.

Plan C was probably nuking from orbit, just to be sure.

The NOC list subplot seemed to have dropped out of the story when Silva was captured and his island operation shut down.
Pity. While a recycled plot from a different spy franchise, that subplot had stakes.
