Sunday night’s Euphoria season finale was a lot to say the least (read our breakdown of the season finale’s finale scene).
But one of the more fun moments was a dance sequence at the East Highland’s formal that got to see the series’ lead star Zendaya channel her inner-Bay Area native.
The Oakland-bred starlet was all in once Too $hort’s “Blow the Whistle” played, so much so that some fans think that it led to unscripted moments.
