Lui or la

Kwiz question " we see her tonight"  answer "nous la voyons cet soir".   I think it should be "nous lui voyons...if you follow the quick lesson.

Voir takes a direct object used in this context - la is correct. Lui is the indirect object pronoun. Examples of usage of both direct and indirect are given in the lesson linked. 

p.s. ce soir

I think i get it.  If he tells it to her,  he is the subject, it is the direct object (le/la/) and her is the indirect object which is replaced by lui.   As in the first example of the quick lesson.
