      A second bonus action is really, really good for a Rogue. You can Dash and Hide, combo attack and disengage, and do a lot of other cool things. This is probably even better than Arcane Trickster.

        Yeah, they really buffed thief, normally arcane trickster is the obvious choice considering that Fast Hands is supposed to do this:

        "Starting at 3rd Level, you can use the Bonus Action granted by your Cunning Action to make a Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check, use your thieves’ tools to Disarm a trap or open a lock, or take the Use an Object action."

        No extra attack, dodge or hide, it would have been a purely role playing or flavor sub-class, now it has chops.

          Having an additional bonus action makes it very easy to fight in and out of stealth and manipulate the environment with your ridiculous movement potential.

            The second bonus action is not to be underestimated - combined with Dash as a bonus action you can navigate the battlefield very effectively while using poison or drinking a potion in the same turn
