I figured it out but forgive my lack of understanding on this: when the white knight moved to f5, why didn't the pawn at g6 just take it?

Anyone else start randomly moving pieces hoping to find the answer? Or am I the only one who did that?

Because the pawn is 'pinned' on g6 by the rook at c6 & moving it places the black king in check.
