Ready hard to tell. I thought the elbow came up on the follow through, but none of the angles show it very well.

How can there be no good angle of the hit?  Can’t tell at all.

Definition of a headshot.  What is the mystery here guys?  He’s exploding upwards while Talbot’s head snaps back.  If that somehow is not a headshot, I’m pretty sure it falls under “close enough”.  Do you think he was targeting the shoulder with that upward momentum?
