I'm agnostic about what Jaime's intentions were. There's no way of knowing -- maybe he wasn't supposed to know -- what he intended, when he left Winterfell, to do with Cersei and there's no way of knowing whether Tyrion managed to persuade him to try to escape with her. He entered the Red Keep by the secret entrance only because he couldn't get in through the main gate, so we don't even know if he initially intended to go anywhere near the boat that Tyrion and Ser Davos had arranged. Nor do we know whether his plans changed after the fight with Euron.I didn’t understand why the King’s Landing defenses didn’t rain down arrows on the Dany forces that were right beneath their walls. Why weren’t the archers who were ready to shoot Tyrion called? They also must have had all those droppable stuff to defend their walls that they knew would be attacked, like hot oil or pitch...or whatever people with actual history knowledge would use.
I still don’t accept Jamie’s actions. I thought he went to Cersei to kill her. If they are still alive and he doesn’t kill her, it trashes all the growth he experienced as a character. It also puts the chances of overly large blonde children with Brienne at zero.
All we really know is that, by the time he did catch up with Cersei, King's Landing had fallen and the Red Keep was falling down around their ears. Cersei was terrified, and whatever plans he may have had to strangle her might simply have evaporated when he saw the reality of their joint situation.
