i: ["" ""]
rule: [thru "[" keep to "]" | rule]
parse i [collect [into rule]]
but would like to get [#"1" #"2"]
What is wrong?

I presume this is using Red's PARSE (from COLLECT usage). It seems one of your problems here is that you are not fully matching the string--you are going TO "]" but not going through it.
However, I can't quite see why you are using a recursive rule in the first place. It seems to me you could get to your result as follows:
rule: [thru "[" keep to "]" skip] ; will match each string
parse i [collect [some into rule]]

Another way to write it that would be recursive (I don't see this as beneficial vs. using SOME) would be:
rule: [into [thru "[" keep to "]" skip] opt rule]
parse i [collect rule]

This was a minimal example, I'll try to see if recursive is necessary or not for the bigger picture.
