    Dude. Take deep breaths, and imagine that your in a greenhouse full of nepenthes.
    VFTs look like that when they're going dormant. If a trap turns all brown, trim it off. They'll grow back in the spring. Unless squirrels tare them up like they did mine.
    Good luck!

    Black spots all over? Sounds like it's dying fast, is it getting enough light? or is it just dying back for winter dormancy?

    I second Halt's opinion, along with a possible fungal/bacterial infection due to the humidity.
