This season is defined by Don's role at the agency, and we learn in the beginning of the season that the partners don't want him back. In fact, he's almost unreasonably reviled by most of the partners and Peggy, and when he does come back, it's under many harsh conditions. Don resents his demotion at first, but by virtue of his Don Draper-ness, things are starting to look like Don is headed for a comeback.
