The last moves were: -1. .. d5-d4 -2. g3-g4 e6xBd5 -3. Ba2-d5 e7-e6 -4. Qa1-b1 h6-h5 -5. Qg7-a1 h7-h6 -6. Bf7-a2 Ka2-a3 -7. Bh5-f7 and the whole position unlocks. White unpromotes his queen on g8, and uncaptures the missing g-pawn on g4, and then brings his king to a1 and his bishop to b1 to let out the black rook.

Suppose white can castle. The two pawns on h5 and h6 need 5 captures to get there, so white's last move wasn't a capture. Only b2-b4 is possible then. So if white may castle, black may capture en passant.
