why is the configuration of the coordinate covalent bonds around the iron in heme square planar? I dont get the books description. I may totally be missing something obvious...any thoughts?

I thought you had to have two pairs of non-bonding e's to have a square planar shape. Good question, since the solution points out that all metal ions have NO non-bonding e's.
