Rhaenyra has had love and laughter and freedom to mostly be who she wants. The children reflect their mothers' circumstances. Seems like a reach. Rhaenyra had her own (significant) problems and being free and self-indulgent does not equate to good mothering capabilities. Meanwhile, Alicent was (emphasis on was) portrayed as kind, gentle, and well mannered. You'd at least expect her kids to not be horribly hedonistic and flippant but that is what you get. Because the show wants to portray Rhaenyra and her kids as lovable and great while Alicent and her children are crude, jealous, and awful. And I'm not buying it.
