I was fighting a dragon and civilians were getting in the way, I guess I accidentally hit one of the civilians. Now he has gone aggro on me and Lydia is trying to defend me. I just want to avoid him and not kill him. How can I get Lydia to stop attacking him?

You could kill them both or just one but you may get caught, or you can stop having her around. There are other good followers around in skyrim –  user42434 Feb 15 '13 at 8:25

You could use a calm spell to get them to stop fighting and fast travel away. They should chill out after a few in-game days have passed without them seeing each other. Alternatively, if you have an entrance to a different cell nearby (indoors -> outdoors, one dungeon level -> different dungeon level, etc), you could try going through and fast traveling before the NPC can give chase. The safest bet is to reload to an earlier save, though.

Dude, the best way is a FUS RO DAH. I don't know why but it always works on Lydia. Trust me they forget everything right when they stand back up.
