Can black not do an "En Passant" after G4?

no, the pawns must be on the same numerical row and right next to each others, not diagonal

first post rick roll lol. love it.

Good puzzle.  I considered 1.Nf5 but didn't see the follow up, so I went for Qxf6 winning the rook due to the threat of Nf5+ and Qh3#

1...Qc2! and White doesn't win anything at all in this line.

1. Nf5 is check so 1...Qc2 is illegal.

FIRST and NICE!

Because White is up in material, s/he has no qualms about sacrificing the Knight to open up a huge attack on the Queen. Qe3 and g4 are lethal moves, and no matter which way Black attempts to avoid it, those will be the final blows to the Black King.

I suppose it's irrelevant, but where did the white rook come from?

Almost thought he could En passant me at the end... Nice puzzle though..

The black pawn would have to be on f4 in order for black to do that

No.  The en passant could only happen if Black's pawn was on f4 moving to g3 to take White's pawn.  Otherwise, from its current position, it cannot take White's pawn after its 2 square advance.

No he cannot. Taking en passant would have been possible if the black pawn was on the f4 square.
