en passant requires a two-square move so there is no way a piece could be on the square that you land...do you have an example of this?

if white has a pawn on e5 and black moves his pawn d7 to d5 then white can take that pawn with e5xd6 using the en-passant rule (because the black pawn passed a square under attack by the opposing pawn).
