Hola Goo

I think you may have got confused with the le/se showing on the table. 

The indirect object pronoun for him and her is "le" - the table is showing le/se because in specific occasions the le turns into se. Here is a lesson for this: when le/les become se

I can see how the table can lead you to think that le is for him and se is for her, so I'm adding a little note to clarify this. 

I hope this helps.

Saludos
