more than one way to do mate in five moves (or less). For example the last move can be QxP mate, or Qa6 mate.instead of pushing the pawn. There are other variations beginning with the 3rd move, that transpose the moves shown, with the same result.
the last move could also be Qa7, or am I missing something?
I completed the puzzle.

Why didn't 1....Bxd6
I know why you’re here. I know what you’ve been doing… why you hardly sleep, why you live alone, and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You’re looking for him. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn’t really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It’s the question that drives us. It’s the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.

Not quite. King can move back to a5 as knight blocks bishop.
