If you're not watching [Marvel's Agent Carter](tag:1119765) this season and you're a hardcore Marvel fan, then you're missing out. The writing has been great, and there are more ties to the Marvel Cinematic Universe than there were last season, most notably the mysterious substance they call "Zero Matter" but comic book fans know as Darkforce.

But the recent episodes had two fun blink-and-you'll-miss-'em Easter eggs that were fun to see.

1. Jarvis' unintentional nod to his later role in the movies

In a recent episode, Howard Stark's loyal butler, Edwin Jarvis, installs a new security system at the Stark mansion under Howard's orders. As he's showing it off to Peggy Carter, he opens a door and an automated voice - his own - informs them that the door has been opened and people are entering the room. Peggy teases Jarvis about being the voice of the new security system and the fussy Jarvis quickly assures her that it's just a temporary measure and intends to replace his voice with someone else.

"I have no desire to spend the rest of time as a disembodied voice," he tells her.

Oh, Jarvis. I don't know how to break this to you, but...

Well-played, Agent Carter writers. Well-played.

2. The Stark family robe

Howard Stark made his first appearance this season, and with him came the return of his favorite robe. You might remember it from last season every time he decided to be a gentleman of leisure.

But an eagle-eyed Marvel fan might recognize that robe from somewhere else...

His own son, Tony Stark, wore the same robe over 60 years later in Iron Man 2.

Turns out, when Tony says to Pepper Potts in the first Iron Man movie, "Pepper, I've been called many things. Nostalgic is not one of them," it might not have been entirely true. Holding on to your dad's old robe? Seems pretty nostalgic to me.

Cool, right?

Marvel's Agent Carter airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on ABC.
